Well, you could. But you AND her would have to be VERY careful... First of all, allow her NO backpack within the confines of your house. Also no clothes that haven't been washed in HOT, soapy water or dry cleaned. Clothes INCLUDE shoes, also. BBs will also reside in shoes, too!
BBs are very resistant to insecticides, they ones you can buy at the store are just not up to the job. Even the ones WE (exterminators) use can become ineffective - we always use several, and change them around on a regular basis.
To be ABSOLUTELY sure, she would almost have to enter your house naked! (lol) And then make sure she put clothes on that were absolutely free of any BBs.
When we do a SERIOUS BB job, we put on Tyvek suits that cover everything (even our shoes) except our face
I admire your altruism, but the word should be "careful!"
Let me know how everything works out!
