Should I be concerned about using Termidor SC near my vegetable garden?

I would like to use Termidor for termite control and ant control around the perimeter of my home. I also have a vegetable garden on my property and I worry that the ants that have walked through the Termidor SC could possibly contaminate my vegetables. My garden is several yards from where I would apply the Termidor.

Answer:

No, there is no need to be concerned. As long as your vegetable garden is not directly sprayed with the Termidor SC or so close to the treatment area that runoff or overspray comes in contact with the garden, Termidor SC is safe to use. There is no worry of ants transferring Termidor to any vegetation.
