    I want to set off a few pest control "foggers" in the house this weekend. Anyone have any bad experiences with these? Any advice on how to protect my collection from damage from the foggers?

    Seal them in boxes and remove from property. Do this with all foodstuffs and items that cant be cleaned afterwards. Wash all clothes, curtains, beddings and soft furnishings afterwards too. Generally foggers and smoke pellets are quite dangerous in a fully furnished and lived in home, since everything thing needs thouroughly sterilising afterwards to remove harmful toxins, is it absolutely neccessary?

    They are plastic.. you could just wash them when your done. But, that depends on which figures you have and how many have stickers...

    That stuff isn't persistent on surfaces I had my house bombed for fleas Cooks Pest Control didn't seem to think it would be a problem for anything but my food, haven't had and poisoning yet.

    It's made to kill bugs not people if you aren't actually in the place when it's being dispersed ad wait the recommended time it's fine for you.

    There's a shopping center in our country that has many shops that sell TF, the do regular fogging there, no harm seems to have befallen the loose ones on display. But as to the effect on the health of shoppers and mall personnel, that remains to be seen.

    Store any Insecticons safely away lest they die from the pesticide.

    Keep all other Transformers with beast modes clear of the area too.

    TF that regularly come into contact with food, such as RotF Ejector, should also be removed before fogging.

    Last time i had to bug bomb my place, i purposely left out a couple of easy to find and cheap to replace legends class figures as an experiment to see what would happen.

    the came through unscathed, mind they were not right next to the bomb/fogger but the exposure they got did not do a damn thing to them.
