Should I worry about rain runoff after Termidor SC perimeter treatment?
I plan on doing a home perimeter treatment (1 foot up and out) with Termidor SC for ant control. I have a vegetable garden that is around 11 feet away from the area being treated. The ground however slopes slightly to the garden. The Termidor will not contact the garden during spraying and I will ensure there is no chance of rain for 24 hours after treatment, but is there a possibility of contaminating the garden from rain runoff after the Termidor has dried? Thanks
We would recommend to keep Termidor applications at least 10 feet from the garden. If the application has time to dry before rainfall or watering to avoid immediate runoff, then this application should be safe.
