Do I need to cover my plants before a mosquito spray treatment? Are garden veggies safe to eat after a treatment?

Plants and garden beds do not need to be covered or harvested before a treatment.  Just use the same practice that should be followed with grocery or market produce, and rinse with water and a mild detergent before consuming.
