can this product be used as a "drench" for severe ant infestation in garden beds
Raised bed have all become giant ant nests as organic weed barriers have decomposed. Ants infest and destroy vegetables and some flowers.
PyGanic Crop Protection EC 1.4 II label states for Commercial production of listed crops to kill listed insects dilute 0.9 to 1.8 fl. oz. of Pyganic Crop Protection EC 1.4II per gallon of water. Apply diluted solution with all types of agricultural sprayers, including compressed air sprayers or pump driven sprayers. It is not labeld to be used as a soil drench application and we recommend contacting the manufacturer MGK directly at 800-645-6466 for more information.
The Outdoor Ant Kit is certified Organic Food Crop Compliant and meets USDA National Organic Program Standards. This would be a good alternative option rather than treating your crops directly.
