The lethal effects of insecticides on fish. How can you remedy the situation?

Apparrently, the best time to have your home sprayed for pests is in late winter to early spring. And pesticides are best applied in the cooler part of the day such as the early morning, especially when there is no wind.

Our client had a disastrous outcome with fish dying in their pond after a pest controller had applied bifenthrin insecticide to their yard.
