What is fogging a house?

Foggers are designed to release an insect-killing fog into the air to rid you of those pesky home invaders. The fog remains in the air for a certain period of time and then gradually settles onto carpet fibers, cracks and other surfaces in your apartment.

Moreover, how long do you have to be out of the house after a bug bomb?

2-4 hours

Also, do foggers work? Total release foggers — also called foggers or bug bombs — work by spraying a mist into the air that falls onto exposed surfaces and objects. Fogger ingredients typically kill insects that are in the open and touch the pesticides. Foggers may not work on some pests that like to hide, such as bed bugs and cockroaches.

Similarly, you may ask, is fogging your house safe?

The insecticides in foggers, or bug bombs, are not just dangerous to creepy, crawly pests, but can also cause serious illness and even death in humans. For this reason, it's vital to follow all safety precautions when using a fogger, including protecting your clothing from exposure to the chemicals.

Can you bug bomb a room and stay in the house?

First of all, if you are just bombing one room, you are not going to get rid of your fleas. You have to do the whole house. Second, if you are using a fogger that's "not as strong", then it's not strong enough. But in answer to your question - no, don't stay in the house while fogging one room.
