any general insecticide would do, but do make sure that you stick to the carbamate family (Sevin should be fine). carbamates don't bioacumulate and disperse quickly. Just make sure you don't turn the tilled soil into a 'chocolate cake' with withe frosting... :)

I thought Seven Dust was to be sprayed on the plants to remove bugs not the soil. Might be termites if they are flying around. Anyway it doesn't effect seeds planted.
