Cover any furniture, objects or other surfaces to protect them from the harsh chemicals found in bug bombs. Use sheets, towels, tarps or other coverings that you may have on hand. Place all food and perishable items in a safe, concealed location.

Foggers are used when pests are present and if you plan to have your home fogged, you need to know that unplugging a refrigerator is a must. Unplugging refrigerators will prevent accidents from happening since chemicals released by foggers are flammable.
Safe use of these products requires that everyone, including pets, leave the treated space and close the doors after foggers have been released. Stay out until the time indicated on the label has passed, usually two to four hours. Prematurely entering the treated premises may lead to illness.
Fogging systems are great at killing roaches on contact, but foggers can actually push the majority of them further into their safer hiding places. Fogging or bombing roaches creates a long-term problem for you and your loved ones that will not go away.
