2,4-H application in townhouse community

I am contemplating buying a townhouse in a community that sprays 2,4-H on the common grounds in the spring and fall. I like to grow vegetables and can put up a 4’ fence around the perimeter of a small side and back yard. Most neighbors behind me have opted out of spraying but not my immediate neighbor on one side. There is also a back deck on the second floor level. I am a cancer survivor. My sister and I both got breast cancer from my father spraying DDT when we were children so I am extraordinarily cautious about any herbicides and pesticide application. Could I feel safe A) growing vegetables in my backyard and b) sitting on my deck? Would it dissipate? If so, how long does it stay poisonous?

What are white spots on hydrangea leaves?

My lace cap hydrangeas have white, cottony deposits on the underside of their leaves, perhaps larvae? They just appeared with this week's rains.

I found what I think is a bat in my basement. There was a 1 inch hole in the window where it was resting. Could it have gotten through there? I eventually got it out through the window, but I am concerned if I have a problem. I appreciate any advice you can give me. Thank you
