Ralph from Livermore, Ca writes

Fruit trees, how close can they be to the Altriset trenchline?

Is it safe to eat the fruit, my orange tree is 7 feet from the outside house perimeter, my lime tree is only 27 inches, and my apricot is 9 feet.


Usually as long as the area treated with Altriset is at least 10-15 ft from the edible plants that is sufficient to make sure the roots are not going into the treated zone. 
We would suggest not applying Altriset along the side of the house that is within 10 feet of the trees.  You should keep a close eye on this area of the house for termites, or you can of course always install some termite bait stations in that area for monitoring activity.
