The exterminator left some overspray of Termidor SC in our garage. Should I be concerned?
While a professional exterminator was drilling and rodding in our garage along two walls, there were at least two holes where he left the rod on as he pulled it out, and it sprayed up our wall and on some of my tools. I'm calling them back to clean it up, but should I be worried about residue on my walls where my kids might come in contact, and the overspray on tools and a canvas bag that it might not get completely cleaned off of? Thank you.
Termidor SC has a half life of about 6 weeks when sprayed topically. This means that any residual will break down over time and should be gone within about 6 weeks. You should still have the pest control operator thoroughly clean the area as that is what the Termidor SC product label demands when the product has been spilled or sprayed improperly.
