Q.Safe to Plant After Using Raid

Anonymous added on March 24, 2014 | Answered

Last August my boyfriend moved into his house and immediately started having problems with ants coming up through the kitchen sink. He ended up spraying Raid behind the house along the foundation. Now this spring I would like to plant vegetables. Is it safe to plant where he used the Raid?

After about a year without the use of any chemical, it should be ok, though the soil may still have remnants of the chemicals used. So as a precaution, I would suggest washing the veggies thoroughly prior to eating them.
