Sorry for the late reply, I have been out of town.

Well, if they still that bad, you can have the outside sprayed, usually done with a power sprayer or a backpack sprayer... I have limited success with that, but it does help. I don't like to do it because of the extra expense to the customer, and with the understanding that it doesn't work 100%, most of the time anyway.

They are a springtime thing, mostly, and after a few weeks (usually) disappear on their own.

They don't "need" plants, all they need are favorable conditions. Moisture, humidity, etc. unning AC and dehumidifiers can help, but marginally...
