    Default Being Invaded

    OKay~ I need some help. We are being invaded by water bugs and I have tried using commercial products but they only work for a day and then the bugs are back. Does anyone have an approach that will rid the bugs forever?
    Thanks in advance for any tips you can share!!

    I use home defense, by Ortho. It is great stuff and it not toxic to humans or pets once its dry. It kills all kinds of "bugs", "ants (including harvester ants),carpet beetles, crickets, earwigs, fleas, firebrats, flies (including houseflies), mosquitoes, moths, roaches, scorpions, silverfish, and spiders (including black widow and brown recluse spiders, and daddy long legs) & Ticks (including ticks that transmit Lyme Disease). " It really is good stuff!

    In places where I don't want to spray liquid (unfinished wood, around books, etc - I put down bay leaves and boric acid (powder) - I was tired of finding roach eggs attached to my favorite books and it worked.
