    I sprayed a wasp nest in our duck coop to get rid of it (the ducks were out of course) and I left the door and window open to air it out and I am the most paranoid duck mama out there, will they be okay since I put them back in after about 30-40 minutes and gave them all fresh water and food.

    Was there a smell in the coop? Did you rinse the sprayed area out afterwards?

    what did you use? what does the label say? How well ventilated is it? Did you replace the bedding?

    They seem fine but I left the door and window open for about 40 minutes before I put them back and changed their water and food. The label didn't say anything about animals inhaling it just people.
