Accidental use of triazicide on my veg garden. #703084

Asked July 20, 2020, 1:43 PM EDT

I accidentally used the Spectracide triazicide insect killer on two of my raised garden beds. I applied it with the hose connected, soaking the soil to kill a large number of grubs. The beds have summer squash and tomatoes in them. Since the spray says “for lawn and landscapes“, not vegetable gardens, are the vegetables not fit for consumption? Shall I pull the garden up, rinse the soil very well, and plant seeds for a fall crop now?

Hello
I took a look at the label for this product. It does list vegetable plant treatment as an option. You can look at the label at https://www.spectracide.com/Labels-And-SDS.aspx. As long as you followed the label instructions, and diluted the product as directed you should be alright with this one time application. Remember that the label is the law when it comes to pesticides.
