Raid wasp spray on shingle roof

derekr | Posted in General Questions on

I sprayed some wasps under my overhang and it dripped down onto my lower roof, it left 2 dark stains

what I want to know is this is going to damage the shingles overtime or is it simply just a stain?

    It is an oil stain and it's probably permanent. It generally won't do any long-term damage to the shingles unless you used a LOT of spray.
