Q&A Home

Jerry from Crandall, Texas writes,

How long do we need to stay out of the house after professional bug bombing and spraying?

The house is going to be sprayed underneath and all outside and professional bombs are going to be set off inside house.


You should follow the recommendations on the product label of each product that will be used as the precaution times can vary. Most foggers or bombs recommend that you are out of the home for 2-4 hours followed by at least 1/2 hour of venting the home by opening the windows. Most insecticide spray products recommend that you stay out of the treated area until it has had time to dry.
