Bombs are for infestations/inaccessible areas.
Try what the pros use for "normal" insect control; Tempo WP, Tempo SC or Talstar One, applied according to label directions. The cheapest I've found it is on ebay. I use Tempo WP and Talstar around here.
If there are any feed stores around they sometimes carry Tempo WP in 7 gram packets, but that's kind of the expensive way to get it.
As far as any residual bomb "poison", once it dries there isn't enough active ingredient left to hurt a fly, but most if not all insecticides are perilous to aquatic life, so you'll want to throw a towel over any aquariums and take care to avoid overspray contacting ponds, etc., but that's all in the label directions. -----
