    Hi all,

    Long time lurker and first time poster here. I've been battling bed bugs in a multi unit building for over 6 months now with the biggest lesson learned of needing to use integrated pest management solutions to win the war. With this said and new battle lines drawn, I now have an issue with clean up of DE. Since I have no shop vacuum (only a Eureka Mighty Might w/hepa filter), would it be best to go over all the floors with a mop and some pine sol first before vacuuming? I worry about overloading the Eureka and I'm a bit thin on funds right now to get a shop vac.
