Frank from Lebanon, Or writes

Is it safe to use Termidor SC around the outside edge of may raised beds to treat carpenter ants?

The raised bed is empty now but plan to plant it in about 30 days with edible plants. Carpenter ants are leaving piles of sawdust at the soil contact with 6" x 6" juniper beams


Termidor SC should only be applied outside within 1 foot of a house or other structure that we are trying to protect. You also should not apply Termidor SC near or on edible plants. The supplemental label of this product does allow for treatment of active carpenter ants in landscape timbers: in this case, the Termidor SC finished solution would need to be injected into the wood where the ants are found. A safe option for use around the outside of the raised bed would be to use a bait such as Advance Carpenter Ant Bait Granules.
