Is it neccessary to clean carpets after insect foggers are set off?
I ask, as I have a 3 year old who sometimes drops food and picks it back up and eats it. I know this is gross but I can't stop him every single time. But now that we set the foggers off, I'm paranoid my carpets are contaminated, or will they be fine?.

Is it possible for an insect infestation to break my oven?
Recently since December, unfortunately we have been fighting a never ending battle with roaches in our town house. This is a new house, with a new stove, etc. At first we thought that our oven lights were going out because it would only show half of the time, however, when my boyfriend tapped on the time, we saw two roaches scurry back into the depths of our oven and revealed the full time. This afternoon we wanted to make pizza and we waited for the pre heat to come on for a good 15 20 minutes before realizing it was not heating at all We tried unplugging it, turning the breaker off, etc. but it still doesn't work. Do you think bugs could have caused this?

If i spray insect repellent, will wasps stay away from me?
So im a lifeguard and at my pool there is a wasps nest in the girls locker room, and the tower that is farthest from the girl locker room always has like 5 wasps flying around... so do you think maybe there is another nest in the trees that are around the pool or are those wasp from the girls locker room? well anyways, im deathly afraid of wasps, mostly cuz i had a traumatizing experience when i was little, and one of the lifeguards is also allergic so for both of us its especially difficult to pay attention to the pool, and do our job when there are wasps flying around and landing on our tower... so i bought some OFF deep woods insect repellent, and im planning to spray it on the umbrella on tower, and on the tower chair itself, and myself.... do you think that will keep the wasps away?????? if not what should i do? ? ?? im going crazy with the wasps i dont know how much longer i can sit there and not fall into the pool from freaking out

What did that green insect do to my hand?
Today I was outside playing and a little green insect landed on my hand I thought it was a grasshopper but it was a bit small . It was green with a yellow sort of back and it could fly, when it wings flapped I could see a black thing underneath them. Well anyway, it landed on my hand and it sat there, it lowered itself as if it was about to jump then I felt a tingly weird feeling in my hand. As I looked at it it looked like something was stuck inside my hand from its body near its mouth . I immediately shook my hand and it flew off, ever since that my hand has felt weird, please help. PS. I live in United Kingdom, Northern Ireland.
Help!!! Bugs! Insects! Same thing every year!?
I've been living in SC for last 3 years. Last year I noticed some kind of weird bugs insects coming out of nowhere in May or June. Now I live at my friends' expensive apt. I went to the bathroom after midnight and I saw bugs coming and coming. I killed like 13 of them When I went back to the room there were 2 of them on the different walls. Decided to sleep on the coach in living room. Help please I searched and searched but I can't find anything about them. While killing them I tried to figure out where they were coming from, they were coming from absolutely different directions. Please help I hate any kind of bugs insects. And the thing is it happens exactly the same time last year in different part of the town.
