Can Talstar EZ Granular be spread where vegetables are grown?
I had an exterminator over to control ants, and she distributed the Talstar EZ Granulars at the base of my vegetable garden. Is that going to be a problem when I grow vegetables in the same dirt next season? Has it made the dirt toxic? Please advise...Thanks!
You should not use Talstar in a vegetable garden. Talstar EZ granules will breakdown in the soil after several months, so your garden plot should be fine to use next spring. If you are worried the soil may be contaminated still, you can also remove the first few inches of soil and replace it with fresh soil.
