    A QUESTION ON THE REI ON A PESTICIDE LABEL .
    DOES THIS TIME PERTAIN TO THE HOME-OWNER ALSO?
    WHEN THEY ASK HOW LONG DO WE HAVE TO STAY OFF THE LAWN,AND THE REI IS "UNTILL DRY" IS THAT THE ANSWER?

    The WPS section refers to Agricultural Use Requirements of the product. And then there should be a Non-Agricultural Use Requirements section that may, or, may not give a different REI. If you are working on lawns & ornamental beds this is non-agricultural work and your notification should tell the homeowners to stay off at least that amount of time. What I do is if the WPS REI is more than the non-agricultural section, I use that to give a greater factor of safety for my customers.
