Just a little something to consider with insecticides... It will do us 
all good if, whatever you use, you don't use it exclusively. Try to 
cycle through 3 different active ingredients with your pest control 
regimen, even if one or two are not as effective as the favorite. If 
this is not practiced religiously, you will find your favorite 
eventually losing its effectiveness. I'm out of practice on the common 
pesticides these days, but pest populations can and will adapt. Cycling 
through different means of control is very effective at combating 
mutative adaptation in the pest population, which, at least, lets the 
better pesticides *STAY* your favorite for *LONGER*.
