Killing ants in blueberry bush
I have a Allegheny mound ant colony right in the midst of my favorite blueberry bush.
In desperation I used Raid ant colony destroyer, knowing that the ants will kill this bush if I don't get rid of them. This product has a straw which is shoved into the nest and a foam is released into the nest filling all the entrances, etc......it never is on the surface of the ground.
What I'm wondering about is if anyone knows if the roots of the plant will absorb the chemical that is in this foam product?
In retrospect I should have picked the fruit first and then applied this product, then I wouldn't of had to worry about the fruit being okay.
I talked to Johnson & Johnson, who manufactures it and the lady wasn't sure.....you are not to spray it on the plant and fruit, but she wasn't sure about the roots.
