Is it safe to eat herbs that were sprayed with Talstar One?
It was not sprayed directly on but I saw spray go through the air onto this area. Should we not eat the herbs now? Would it be best to cover the herbs with plastic for future sprayings?
No, the herbs should not be eaten. Talstar is not labeled to spray on edible vegetation and the effects of eating food products contaminated by the insecticide are not known. We would definitely recommend covering the herbs in the future to prevent contamination.
