Can I use the rest of my garden to grow vegetables?

I used Taurus solution few weeks ago, on few spots on my garden to treat ants colony and I need to know if I can use the rest of the garden to grow vegetables or fruits trees? What's the recommended distance from the treated areas to the areas where I can grow my vegetables? Many thanks


Taurus SC Termiticide is not labeled for use out in lawns for mound treatments nor around anything edible.  Applications are only approved adjacent to structures in a trench for termites or sprayed 1-2 feet up and out for general pests only and should be kept at least 15 feet from anything edible.  It can persist in the soil for up to 10 years or more.  We would recommend reaching out to the manufacturer directly for advise regarding planting in the area since Taurus was used off label, Control Solutions 281-892-2500.
