    OK we had a heat treatment done yesterday and then they sprayed all the base boards too afterwards.My landlord is a cheap ass and doesnt do things right.Almost everywhere through my house the walls dont go all the way to the floors.There is like a inch space...I want to take DE and spray it in all the cracks and then take caulking abd caulk it all.My questions are.Will the caulking get the DE wet and then it be no good?This is also where the bug guy sprayed.It is dry now.Would be OK to put the DE and caulking there also?If not what should I do?

    Cimexa is much more effective than DE, use that instead.

    There would be no way to caulk cracks that big. They wouldn't be sealed and the caulk would just make it harder for you to work and get to the bugs. IMO
