West Nile Virus - Can I swim in my pool after the spraying of permethrin?
Since permethrin droplets are designed to stay airborne for an extended period, little permethrin is expected to settle into your pool. If any permethrin does enter your pool, the water would quickly degrade it. If you choose, you can cover your pool before the spraying occurs. You do not need to take special steps or wait before you can use your pool again.
