Just ruined my garden? ? ?

Went out to the place I planned on planting my gard3en and there is this big oloe groundhog hole - and a few feet away another hole *(entrance and exit) - right in the spot I am going to plant my garden. so I go out and buy some poison pellets - mix them in with some peanut butter and throw one beanut butter poins pellet down each hole - then trhow some plain pellets also down each hoile. Npow I am thinking - did I just ruin my garden? Suppose he doesn;t eat all this poison - then I go and till the soil - mix the pellets into it and plant veggies - is this dangerous?

I'd pull out the box the pellets came in and see if you can find a customer service number to call.

You can't be the first person to do this

Wrote them an eamil - they said it won;t be a problem =- that the pooison - zinc phosphide will break down and decompose when exposed to water and dirt - and it cannot be directly absorbed thru the plant roots - so it looks like I am OK
