    Yeah. That's a bit much for this thread, I think.

    Wow. That must be some heavy duty stuff. I've set off bug bombs in one of my old houses before and all I put over the tank was a towel and no problems. Condolences for your loss aesthetically, personally and financially.

    you'd be surprised... even if there are laws in place against such an occurrence. what good are laws when the countries lam makers ignore it?

    You might think so but reality on the ground is still... well... reality.

    You can point fingers anywhere, no country is innocent.

    Not sure what laws you're talking about - Im talking about people not being allowed to fumigate their property 'improperly' and putting other people in the neighborhood at risk. There is nothing that I've seen that these laws aren't enforced.

    @ mr. Potatohead :D sorry i have to lol but i am not disagreeing with you... you are correct no country is innocent. what i am referring to however is the >blatant disregard<for the environment. i am not pointing fingers but there are countries that blatantly ignore environmental conditions to build on coastlines that intrude on wildlife and the natural aquifer.

    Problem is, the OP's not in the US and I highly doubt they have as stringent laws governing pesticides as the US does. And we all know the US' laws on pesticides isn't all that great either

    dang, that’s hard to swallow man. Shouldn’t the people applying that stuff be sure that overspray and crass contamination doesn’t occur?

    So sorry for your loss, people should inform when they do that, I hope you can re-start.

    Well I posted the laws from the United Arab Emirates in my post. So. I don’t know either but it’s also not clear that his neighbor caused the problem

    That is horrible and how do you know or plan for such event? I keep my house literally airtight as I use heat or A/c year round. Occassionally in nice weather leaving my patio door open with screen closed during spring and fall.
