    one woman told me to caulk ENTIRE house; every hole, seam, and baseboard, which seems literally impossible. is it impossible and/or necessary? there are cable connections, phone cords, and floorboards that must remain removable to get to crawl space, etc. what to do??
    If i do the bedroom only, do i do it before or after pco treamtent? If I caulk ONLY the baseboards in bedroom, won't they just go thru walls and into other rooms?
    per usual with this bb situation, am confused.
    many thanks.

    I know that caulking our apartment has helped to trap the bugs there and not push them into another place, I am not sure about a house but would like to know for my parents also:)

    I also would like to know about this--am facing having to deal with this in a very large rental house and I honestly can't imagine getting to every single crack in this lifetime. Doing just the bedroom would be a huge relief!

    Maybe you could do something more removable over the crawl space access, like a piece of plastic secured with painters tape?
