Should my kids be staying with me during this flea problem or should they be at their home with the vacuum spaying,bombing & vacuuming more?

help please, my daughter is pregnant and I have a 3 year old grand-baby. How safe can it be for them? But the Son -in-law is healthy! Got rid of the furniture,Dog is with family, no carpet(does not seem to matter) Paying an exterminator, setting off bombs...I am worried they are going to be transported to my home from their cloths.(I make them strip in the garage), Do fleas live in electronics? (like roaches) They have to go back and forth for things (yikes)
Torn :-( and I feel awful about it!

I should think they'd be better off staying with you. Pregnant women and toddlers should be kept away from harsh pesticides- what does the warning label say on whatever they're using?

Of course I agree about staying away from the pesticides. :-)

Talk to the doctor, but the safest route would be for them to stay in the home that's not being flea bombed.

If they have fleas on them buy them a shampoo to kill the fleas on them before returning home

The answer is obvious.

What is obvious,stay with me and let the fleas take over their home? Of course I will not have them staying there while it is dangerous from any chemicals.Or tons of fleas are still jumping on them. But once the air has cleared it should be safe to go home and start vacuuming and 'living' Work on the problem, not run from it.(is all I'm saying) :-)

send them home until the chems and bugs are gone. you probably shouldn't spend too much time indoors either
