Q&A Home

Judy from Huntsville, Alabama writes,

Will tomato or other crop plants absorb this through their roots?

Fire ants like to build nests up against my tomato plants or fruit bushes. If I break up the nest and spray with this thoroughly, will the plants absorb this into their system/fruit?


Cynoff WP is not intended for use around edible vegetation and has not been tested to see if it can be translocated through the plants. You must keep applications of Cyper WP outside of the drip line of the root system of the tomato plants to insure safe applications. You can use fire ant bait in bait stations near the tomato plants to help with the current infestation.
