Is it safe to eat citrus fruit from a tree that has been treated with Confidor?

My mandarin tree is too big for me to spray all over with white oil. Confidor keeps it healthy but I am nervous about eating the fruit.

Answer: Hi Eileen.

Confidor is not registered for use on edible citrus and for that reason there will be no withholding period stated on the label. We would advise that Confidor not be used on edible citrus.

You will notice on the label that Confidor is registered, and is able to be used on certain vegetables, stone fruits and ornamental plants for which a withholding period will be stated on the label.

White Oil & Pest Oil does have registration for use on edible citrus for which there is a 1 day withholding period.
