    Well we have had a flea problem so we "bombed" the house. Fumigated it or what ever its called. i TOTALLY forgot about the eggs i had setting out on the table to wait to go in the bator - Are the eggs still good? Or should I just toss them ? There are about 20 and I REALLY hope they are still good. Is there any chance?

    I'd give them a good wash with some warm, soapy water then give them a try. Nothing much to lose at this point.
