Do you guys put all your brushes, blades, razors and soaps away inside a closed wardrobes or draws, before the pest control comes inside to spray around the walls, or do you leave them out in the opening inside your bedroom or bathroom before you leave the house or unit for at least 4 or 5 hours. And open all the windows to air out the pest control smell, while you’re brushes, blades, razors and soaps are left out in the opening in your bedroom or bathroom.

I’m worried about the pest chemicals might contamination all the brushes, blades, razors and soaps, before, I shave or is it safe to leave to leave them out, or no must put them away inside a closed wardrobe or draws.

Thank you 🙏

Speedy,
What type of chemicals for fumigation? The pest control company should be able to advise you of the necessary precautions.
If possible I would place the brushes in a sealable container. The other gear can placed away as mentioned above and washed before use.

You be fine mate, obviously ask what chemicals are being used and for what pests.
Most sprays and baits used for cockroaches today have a very low irritant level and not harmful to pets or humans. Usually sprayed along skirting boards or same area around house. Then baits syringed into kitchen/bathroom hinges.
If the guy/girl is not wearing a respirator it usually tells you something.
So feel fine to leave your stuff out or just ask the pest controller for advice upon their arrival.

Yeah, those cockroaches are hard to get rid of. I went to a shopping centre years ago and was supposed to look at their grease arrestors with the maintenance personnel. We went into a service room under the shopping centre which was pitch black. When the light was found and turned on I just started running on the spot as there was wall to wall cockroaches, millions of them, big ones, it was like something out of Indiana Jones!
