    I just put a clutch of eggs in the bator, and the pest man called to say he is coming tomorrow. Will it hurt the eggs???? What should I do?[​IMG]

    You could move the bator to a spray free area for 24 hours, or not let him spray in the same room as the bator. Personally I wouldn't let a chance of the eggs being poisoned. I know commercial hatchers use fumigating to keep bacteria down, but I doubt it's the same as the pest man will be using.
