I bought a chilean rosehair tarantula last week into my new apartment. I've had a notice saying that they will be coming in tomorrow to do bug spray treatment. I'm taking Sophia out all day in my record bag but I'm still worried that it will affect her when I'm back at night. I can't find anyone to look after her either. Any chance she will be ok? Can I open up windows to clear the spray out? I don't want to kill her so if she's not going to be ok then I may have to see if I can take her back to the pet shop. I'd rather give her back and let someone else look after her than keep her here and kill her :-( but what do you guys think? I'm going to have a word with whoever is doing the treatment tomorrow and tell them that a) I've only been here a week and b) I have a pet tarantula and see if I can get them to just not do it. The notice says to keep animals out for 4 - 8 hours after treatment but I'm guessing that doesn't apply to arachnids.
