Thomas from Bradenton, Fl writes,
Is there a danger that citrus trees will absorb Bifen IT thru the SOIL if I spray my lawn for chinch bugs?
I am concerned whether the citrus fruit may be harmful to eat if the surrounding lawn area is treated. I know not to get any over-spray on the trees/fruit but I am not clear as to possible absorption via the soil.
Bifen IT does not move through the soil. As long as you keep all spray applications out of the root zone and do not allow spray to drift toward the trees, the trees will not be affected by Bifen IT.
