Planting After Using Ant Poison

I have a very large ant hill (approx 3' wide by 2'deep and quite high) in perennial plant area of my garden. I have sprayed poison and have dusted the area with ant poison. Do I have to wait for the ants to die or move before planting in the ant mound with new perennials? Will the poison affect the growth of the new plants?? thank you

I LOVE Terro liquid you place in on wax paper the ants take it to the nest no more nest!!!
I would NOT plant while there are ants still there obvious reason!!!
since its flowers the poison wont affect much!!
Plant as soon as ants die.
