Cindy from Fort Lauderdale, Fl writes,

How long are the fumes dangerous to pets or humans after the bug bombs are done?

I want to buy a bug bomb that I can do myself for a new apartment. The lease states I can do it 5 days before my possession of the place. Will this be enough time for any harmful fumes to dissipate? I'm sure I'll be fine, but fumes/sprays can kill my bird, so I need to know. Thank you very much.


All bug bombs will have the amount of time you should vacate the premises for on the can.  Most, however, have about a 3 to 4 hour window where you cannot enter the premises after setting the bug bomb off.  So 5 days should be no problem at all.
