Default Hedgies & Fumigation

Just found out the apartment I'm moving to fumigates quite a bit. Now, I'm assuming that they'd give warning to when they were doing it.
If this were to happen when I'm not home, would a giant sheet and blanket over her cage protect her? I'd take her into work with me, but I work in DC, and they're illegal there, and her daddy works in a grocery store.
I'd have to leave the apartment if they fumigate, so I wouldn't be concerned about taking Amelia out with me to Petsmart and for a ride during the fumigation.

If they were fumigating actually in your apartment, I wouldn't think a blanket over her cage would be enough to keep fumes and such away from her. Do you have a vet lined up around the new apartment? Maybe you could call them and see if it'd be possible to take her there in a travel cage for part of the day if you both have to work during a scheduled fumigation. Or if you have any friends in the area, or once you get to know some people, maybe they'd be willing to play hedgiesitter just for a few hours.

Yeah, we're actually moving closer to her vet. :P
I think it's just in the building... they gutted and completely re-did our apartment, so I doubt they'll be fumigating inside ours for a while.
