We have a full scale carpenter ant invasion and I just must have an exterminator come out. They told me that the chemicals that they use are extremely harmful to birds and they should be out of the house for 24 hours. So what do I do with the 4 week old chicks that I've got in my garage??? And do you really think that 24 hours is enough?? Any advise is appreciated. My daughter would be devastated if anything happened to her peeps.
