:) Several weeks ago I was getting the veggie garden ready and hit a large
:) colony of ants. I know that ants are *supposed* to be harmless, but... last
:) year the mound some ants dug hammered several of my golden pepper bell
:) plants. Without thinking long enough, I reached into my shed and grabbed the
:) first thing I could see which was wasp spray and saturated a 4'x4' area.
:) It has rained quite a bit since (SW PA zone 5b or 6ish) and now I'm
:) wandering if there is any significant problem with putting bush beans or
:) bush cukes in that little sector?
I don't think your worry would be the amount of insecticide around the
plants, but if the by products in the aerosol will effect the growth
of the plants. If the can says water based formula, even that
wouldn't be a worry. Another option would be removing several inches
deep of the area and bring in some fresh soil.
