My husband sprayed the okra plants with Ortho Bug-B-Gone Max two days ago. Can you ever eat the new okra coming off the plants?

Generally, most chemicals in pesticides and weed killers will dissipate after a couple good rainfalls or waterings. As a precaution, I would suggest washing the veggies thoroughly prior to eating them. In the future, you may want to use neem oil for treating insect pests in the veggie garden. It is safe to use and organic.
