    Hi,

    After about a week of the first cypermethrin treatment (2 more to come), this is the only thing I could find (it was motionless) aside from some dead ants, can you please Id if this is a BB or a spider (metric scale)?

    I have cleaned all the dropping sites on the floor ceramic tiles and grouted whatever crack I could locate, and monitoring for activity constantly.

    Thanks for the reply, I'm going in a OCD frenzy in my checks, confused between what I've read about pyrethroids lesser effect vs. the nil activity since the last treatment.

    Are they that adept, that they might sense being hunted and "lay low"??
