I have a container strawberry garden. It's infested with ants. I squirted about an inch of gel on the dirt. Will the ants traveling with the gel contaminate my garden and render the strawberries toxic?
We do not recommend treating edible vegetation outdoors with Advion Ant Gel. We would suggest discarding any fruit that was in contact with the product to be safe. It is recommended to treat with ant control products outside the drip line or 10-15 ft away from the strawberries. You could use ant baits in or around a garden in bait stations such as the Ant Cafe.
