Probably best NOT to use the Bi - you can trap the bugs inside, making you disappearance time longer. Treatments should be to where they COME FROM. They are an outside animal, so you can kill all that you have inside, and still get more from where they're coming from.
Thing is, if you spring for an outside treatment, that generally means some sort of a power spray, and that gonna cost you anywhere from, say, a hundred or two dollars, anywhere up to Really Big Bucks, depending on many factors. And all that for a harmless bug that will usually go away on its own?
Now, I know a LOT of exterminators that would JUMP at the chance to get work like this, but to me, I think it's "not needed" and I believe, borders on an unethical treatment.
Not to say that there aren't times when I WOULD do a treatment like this, - like if this were, for example, a medical facility or something. Or even if a present customer (of mine) absolutely INSISTS on it, I would do it. But they would also get all of the facts that I have presented here, before I performed any treatments. And I can't actually remember not being able to talk them out of it. A real pro doesn't think of the money part and will often tell you NOT to do something.
