David from Dacula, Ga. writes,
Termidor was trenched in my vegetable garden; can I use that area now or ever?
Also, can I transfer dirt to another area as I have been using that spot for 12 years now and the soil is great. The trenched area was only 8 inches into garden; can I just plant away from that area.
You cannot use the soil that was treated with Termidor SC for planting edible plants. You must keep any edible garden plants far enough away from the soil so that the roots do not enter that area. You should also note that if you disturb the trenched area where the Termidor SC was applied you will be disturbing the barrier and could cause an opening for termites to cross.
