I would think the Orkin guy should be able to answer that one. I doubt if it would be harmful though. I mean, think of all the plastic, vinyl, etc in a house. I don't think they make people remove it all before spraying.

Or maybe they do. All i had was termites and I didn't have to remove anything.

I saw on the news a while ago that they are becoming a real problem again. One way a lot of people get them in their homes is if they stayed at a hotel and they bring them home in their luggage and bed clothes.

I hate bugs in my house. Besides the termites we had I get centipedes all the time.

If it has been in your parents bedroom all that time then bugs are the last thing I would be worried about

You are correct. Back in the day they used to spray the hell out of the larger cities with DDT and other pesticides to control the roaches. It wasnt intended but it kept the bed bugs under control. They have long since banned its use and increased travel in major cities bed bugs have become an epidemic. I actually have a few patients that I have had to notify the housing authority on numerous times due to bed bugs. They are a bitch to get rid of and I cringe every time I have to go in their homes.

I think your top will be fine. Just rinse it afterwards so that sh*t doesn't sit on it.

I get spiders and centepedes. Little punks will go shooting across the carpet at night in the dark

the cat loves them. I'm always finding dead bodies around
