Would this product be safe to spray around an organic garden?

I have an organic garden, but I also have a severe tick problem in my fenced in yard. I only live on about 3/4 an acre but there are deer ticks all over it, and I have small children. I want to spray something in/around my yard, which would be around my garden, but not on the plants in the garden beds. Is this safe, or is there a chance that this will get down into the soil and come into contact with my plant's roots?

Answer:

Permethrin SFR 36.8% is labeled for ticks and can be used in your lawn. The product should not be used within the drip line of the garden. We normally recommend using it at least 2-3 feet away. Once the product is dry, it is safe for your children to go into the lawn. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
