Can you bomb for fleas with cats in the house?

Can you bug bomb a room and stay in the house?
While it may seem reasonable to stay in a different room of your house while using a bug bomb, we don’t recommend taking this action. If the insecticides from the bomb seep into the room you’re in, you could experience asthma, conjunctivitis, contact dermatitis, and other serious health conditions.
Why you shouldn’t use flea bombs?
