Does rain affect bug spray?
In this manner, can you spray for bugs before it rains?
General Guidelines: For most insecticides, effective control can be obtained if the spray goes out about 2 to 4 hours before the rain. One major exception to this is Orthene or any of the other acephate based products.
Subsequently, question is, will rain wash away Sevin spray? Answer: As long as the Sevin application has had about 24 hours to dry before rain fall occurs the application should not wash off of the treated area.
Beside above, can you spray for termites in the rain?
Some termiticides and chemical products can be less effective after heavy rains. For example, liquid soil treatments for subterranean termites can be diluted by heavy rainfall and flooding, to the point of being ineffective. Therefore, for the best results, call Orkin to handle termite problems in any weather.
How long does it take for bug spray to dry?
2 to 4 hours
