Yes, the rain will dilute the effects. The topic of spraying can get deep real
quick e.g. as to the effectiveness vs the ecological ramifications.
Then throw in the use.... just cause the producer and the use of its product is
ingrained in the norm / budget.
You have those who look for and find reasons to use chemicals (the producers),
and those who look for and find reasons not to. When you go to the history of
mosquito eradication and the The Global Malaria Eradication Programme which
was launched in 1955 you learn that many countries had eradicated the problem
when the program was stopped. In the years since malaria has once again become
a major killer globaly. Going conspiracy theorist a bit why was the eradication not
completed? I say a keep the problem and profit on solutions mentality was at least
a part of the agenda. With more effort there is a possibility that mosquitoes would
not be an issue. There are some who question the basis for the ban on DDT.
I really did not do this topic justice, there are much better links to much
better synopsis out there, I was just too lazy to do the work to find them.
My response is to use a mosquito net.
