Ok, our cat brought in fleas. I know we all have to leave the house for at least 6 hours, but what I'm wondering is if the roaches should be ok back in the room after the 6 hours, because it is pesticide.

I've never been in this situation before especially with roaches. (don't have any beardies at the moment.)

Has anyone had to do this before?

I don't think it would be safe to keep your roaches in the house while it is being pesticide bombed. Can you not take it with you? Or have a friend hold it for the day?

Not while it's being bombed, just after the 6 hours when it's safe for humans and pets to re-enter. I'm just worried about the roaches because they're insects and pesticide kills insects lol.

It's about 80 during the day here, so I can leave them outside with no problem at all for 6 hours or all day if need be. I just need to know if it will be safe to bring them back in or will there be traces of it still left in the room?

I am really not sure sorry.

Is it possible that you ask the people who are pesticide bombing your house? Or if you are doing it yourself, possibly call the number on the can?

If that is the temp outside, maybe it would be safe to leave them outside for a day or something.

Ok, I will try to leave them outside all day. As for the night time, it gets to be around 60 at night. Will they be okay for a night with no heat?

Uh :s its a tricky situation. I think it would be best if you could have them stay at a friends house for a day or two.
Or call the people and check.

Ok, maybe I'll run an extension cord out the window for the heat pads. There are absolutely no people I know that would willingly put roaches in their house lol.

That should work.

Don't run the extension cord while the house is being bombed though. I don't know what the warnings are on the bug bombs but I wouldn't want an extension cord running through my house while there is a ton of gas in my house.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
