If Dominion has been used in the soil around my house, is it safe to grow herbs in this soil. Im assuming not but how can I know if the soil has been contaminated by its use?

Answer:

You should not plant an herb garden that will contain edible vegetation in the same soil that was treated with Dominion 2L. Dominion 2L persists in soil for at least 5 years and it is not labeled to be used in places where edible plants will be grown. If you really do want to plant a herb garden in an area that was treated with Dominion 2L you will need to remove all of the soil and replace it with untreated soil. You should note though that if the soil is removed and it is in the termite treatment barrier zone you will be left with a hole in your termite barrier.
