Will fruit from my fruit trees be safe to eat if I sprayed Termidor SC near them for ant control?

The flowerbeds have fruit trees that are 1-2 ft away from the cinder-block wall. I sprayed termidor SC to the base of the cinder-block wall to get rid of the trail of ants last year. Will my fruits from these fruit trees be safe to eat? I am a little concern now that the termindor solution might seep into the roots of these fruit trees

Answer:

As long as the Termidor SC application was not applied within the root-zone of the trees the fruit should be safe to eat. Termidor SC does not move through the soil and would not trans-locate anywhere, it would stay exactly where you placed it.
