I inherited a bed bug infestation when I moved into my apartment near school and plan to relocate the 1st week of October. I also pre-ordered the Halo: Reach Xbox 360 bundle to replace my aging, 1st generation (Zephyr chipset) 360 Pro.
Before I move, I need to get all of my belongings fumigated to help ensure I don’t bring bed bugs into my new (and hopefully bug-free) apartment, and I’m trying to figure out whether or not I should ship my new 360 straight home where it’s safe from bugs and chemicals, or if pesticide fumes will interfere with the operation of the console. i.e. will the chemicals coat the chipset when the fumigation is complete and cause it to overheat and auto shut-off frequently? (I’ve heard the 360 slims run hot as is.)
I don’t know which chemicals the exterminator will be using, but I do know I will put all my non-clothing property — and electronics if it’s safe — (desktop PC, laptop, Zephyr 360, printer, speaker system, tv/monitor etc.) into a closed environment for small-scale fumigation, so the chemicals may be fairly potent and concentrated.
I live in the Bay Area, CA if that helps narrow down possible pesticides exterminators use.
