Spraying for Fleas

Ok I'm having my apartment sprayed for fleas and other bugs tomorrow. Do I need to get the cats out of the apartment for this? Will it harm them? Should I bath the cats after they spray and then put advantage on them? Thanks in advance!

It depends on what they are using but usually you do need to have all pets out for at least 4 hours (birds longer). You should ask the company. Personally, I would not have them there regardless.
And, yes, it's a good idea to bathe the cat's and definitely put Advantage on them.
I used to take mine to the groomers while my apt. was being done. Then I'd come home, open the windows, clean, do laundry (bedding and such) and then bring the cats home.
Also, don't forget to treat your car. If the cats have fleas they'll get in there when you transprot them. Use a pet friendly spray and just spray it after you drop the cats off, then air it out before you put them (or yourself ) back in.
Have fun!
