It Can Depend on How Heavy the Rain IsWhile pest control can be done in the rain, some modifications may need to be made or certain areas skipped in heavy rain.
For example, if the area to be treated is completely exposed to rain (a child’s play structure in the middle of your yard, for example), your pest control technician may not be able to spray while it is raining heavily.
If the rain is light, or if the areas to be treated are protected, the rain shouldn’t change the effectiveness of your pest control treatment and it can usually proceed as planned.
It Can Depend on Where the Area to Be Treated is LocatedMost areas of your home receive enough protection from the weather that they can be treated when it’s raining. Even the outside walls are somewhat protected by the roof overhang in most cases.
If your pest control treatment needs to be changed or modified to accommodate the rain, your technician will advise you.
It Can Depend on the Treatment MethodPest control treatments can be liquid chemicals, solid or semi-solid bait, traps, and even structural modification like sealing cracks and repairing screens.
Of all of these, only the liquid treatments are likely to be potentially affected by the rain. If your treatment is non-liquid, there shouldn’t be any issue at all. But always rely on your technician to let you know for sure.
