Can I use Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust in soil?

I have termites coming into the soil of my tomato plants and my tomatoes are ripening. They're killing off my plants one at a time and moving on. Can I use the dust in the soil without causing any harm to the plant?

Answer:

Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust is not for use for termite control or for use on edible gardens. Since termites will only feed on raw cellulosic materials, it is much more likely that something else is causing the decay of your tomato plants. If live termites are observed around edible plants, most customers will simply use some very hot or boiling water to kill the ones they see. You can also view our Termite Prevention Guide for information about how to protect your home from subterranean termites.
