so here it is...
1.the tech used eco exempt D in all the voids of the plugs and switches.
2. boricide to dust the attic. other materials have been used in the past like avitrol, cy-kick, drione insecticide, etc.
3. he is returning wednesday to spray the exterior of the house too

another tech came in who is the Certified Inspection Specialist, he said...
1. too many vents in the attic resulting in poor ventilation thus too much humidity so we must 2. add a dehumidifier to the downstairs(remember it is a raised ranch) and 3. add saufets to the eves. he suggested to have only a ridge vent and saufet vents. also we need to 4. vent the bathroom out of the attic rather than into the attic. he also said the attic should be about the same temp as the outside and ours is too warm compared to the outside and it is too humid.
so i guess i am going to properly vent the bathroom to the outside rather than the attic and i will add more saufet vents and close the extra vents in the attic and add a dehumidifier.

Do you agree that changing the relative humidity and properly venting the attic could make the silver fish find a new home?
