    Used wasp spray in the house
    Had four wasp in my apartment I used hotshot wasp spray. Then I notice the label saying do not use indoors. So I immediately cut off my ac unit and opened my balcony door and used a fan to ventilate the room and washed everything that came in contact with soap and water. Should I be worried about anything else

    If you can still smell the petroleum solvents, you didn't wash everything that it contacted. Should you be worried? Wash your hands before you touch your eyes; otherwise no.

    Anything that can and does kill another living thing on contact, you should worry about. Especially if used in your home.

    It may not affect you right now, this moment, but it will in the long run. :(

    You're painting with that wide brush again, Alty. The contact insecticide reacts with chitin. Unless devrp has a shell or an exoskeleton, odds of his/her being affected are extremely long.
