Pesticide residue, advice please

Hello everyone,

I have a fig tree in a half barrel by the kitchen door and noticed wasps coming and going from underneath. We called in someone to get rid of them. By the way, I would have left them alone if they'd been well out of the way but with a toddler and a young baby, I'm not taking any chances...

So, now the wasps are gone, what should i do? Are the chemicals in the pesticide going to affect my fig tree and fruits? I know they are not going to kill the plant but i garden organically so it bothers me... What would you do?

thank you,

    Same here - you hired a professional to deal with the situation - they would have told you if there was anything that needed to be done.

  • Thank you. I'm glad I'm worrying for nothing... (As usual some might add image)
