Will rain wash away Termidor?

Just had the exterminator spray that perimeter of our house with Termidor 7969-210 BASF Fipronil 9.1% to get rid of carpenter ants. That was around 3 pm today. Now, we hear that we're going to get rain tonight for several hours, which means that the Termidor only had about 8 hours in the soil. Will the rain wash away the Termidor and basically ruin the application?

    To be sure exactly what the exterminator did you should just ask him. I know he/she will be glad to answer any questions you have. Pest control is a very competitive business and service is the one thing that can separate one company from another

    He didn’t just spray the surface, he put it below ground too?  

    It should be ok if he put it below ground.  Termidor lasts 5 years in the soil.

      I think he only sprayed the perimeter, not below. Will it be ok, or should he re-apply?
