Lawn turns yellow after using ant killer nearby

My lawn has unexpectedly turned yellow and dried out on a 2 sqft area after using a .25% Permethrin Ant killer spray. ( Wilsonís Ant Out)
The spot sprayed was about 3 ft away from the lawn, separated from it by a 3 ft wide stone walkway.
What can be done to restore the lawn quickly , in addition to a lot of watering ?

Quickly? Did it up and replace with sod.

I'm not convinced the ant killer did this, sounds too far away. Have you looked for any other cause?
