Vegetable Planting- Termites

Q: Is it safe to plant vegetables near termite baiting systems?

A: Termite expert Dan Suiter says the insecticide contained in a baiting system is held within the stations. It does not leave unless a termite eats it and carries it back to their colony. Additionally, baits are not water soluble. The only problem could be if the bait stations were covered with vegetable vines so the pest control technician couldn’t find them. Contact the bait’s manufacturer for a final answer.
