I sprayed my apples with spinosad this morning, to combat winter moths. This afternoon it began to drizzle, and continued drizzling most of the day.

Was the spray wasted? Should I re-do it when the weather clears? Should I wait 10 days, as per the label?

(I'm also a little nervous, because this is the first time I've used leftover spinosad from last year. But it looked okay this year. Maybe it didn't freeze, since the winter has been so mild.)
