I recently treated my basil plants with cypermethrin insecticide to control pests. While the product label indicates a waiting time of 3 days for tomatoes, it doesn't specify the waiting period for basil. I want to ensure the safety of consuming the basil leaves after the cypermethrin application.
Considering the 3-day waiting time for tomatoes, I would like to know the recommended waiting period before consuming basil leaves treated with cypermethrin. Is it safe to assume a similar waiting time for basil, or should I extend the waiting period?
I understand that using pesticides on edible plants should be done cautiously, and I want to adhere to the appropriate safety guidelines. Any insights or recommendations regarding the waiting time for basil after cypermethrin application would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
