Is spider spray dangerous for my health?
So I recently moved to Texas, and as the saying goes “Everything is bigger in Texas,” including spiders. I moved into a house in Kyle in a development that is kind of in the country. I am terrified of spiders, especially the brown recluse, given all the horror stories about their bite and biting people in their sleep. Wolf spiders are a problem in this house, and yesterday, I killed the biggest spider I have ever seen in my life (not sure what it was, but it was terrifying!) in the garage. Prior to all of this, I sprayed the perimeter of the house twice with Ortho Home Defense, and my bedroom at least 5, if not 6 times. (Not all in the same day, but over the coarse of several days). While spraying the small, carpeted room, I had the door closed and no windows open because I didn’t want to let spiders in. I didn’t even give it any thought that I may be breathing it in because my anxiety completely took over. I slept in there for a week then I went on vacation for 3 weeks. When I came back, there were at least 4 or 5 dead little spiders on the carpet. I feel safe that the poison is doing it’s job at killing at least the small spiders, but now I am freaking out that I may have given myself cancer or the risk of cancer because I sprayed so much and didn’t ventilate the room properly, even though I left after spraying. I am a healthy (as far as I know), active 31 year old female. Should I be concerned or how concerned should I be? And is it still safe to sleep in the room because even though I feel a little more protected from the spiders, I’m afraid of breathing in the poison anymore. What should I do? Thank you so much for your help.
