In brief: Follow instructions

It is acceptable to have an exterminator come to your house.
After their treatment they advise people to leave the house for a certain period of time. You should follow those instructions just like you would if you were not pregnant.

In brief: Safety

In pregnancy it is recommended that you minimize any kind of chemical exposure.
It is probably best not to be in the house for several days if chemical spraying is being done.
