This is a pesticide product by Bayer Environmental Science. Acc. to its fact sheet, it must not be sprayed on vegetable gardens. Does that mean that, if such an accident occurs, the soil within 10 feet should be replaced (assuming it was to be used for vegetables)?

I would like feedback, as I frame my comments for the tree care company responsible for this mistake. If there's authoritative text on this available, that too would be helpful.

Thank you.

I wouldn't eat it. You can up detox soil and Howard has some suggestions.
