    I wasn't going to post a new thread... but I am curious... I believed we were doing well in our fight. Hadn't seen anything, no fresh bites, nothing at all in a few weeks. Then, boom- I see a freshly fed, bright Red 1st instar. Then, the next day, I see another one. My husband doesn't react, and I'm finding them in places where he's been (like his gamer chair). Is this normal? Like, are we just now seeing the eggs we may have missed? Because I'm stumped. And getting angry. Lol

    Residual sprays and dusts don't kill eggs-- you have to wait for them to hatch and cross poison to die. So this is normal if the PCO did not find every egg, which is fairly typical.

    Stay strong! You probably should get a follow up inspection/treatment (these are usually done at two week intervals and it's better not to wait to see something-- ideally they come and look).

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
