What can be done if you live in an apartment, of which do not have good screens, and outside doorsRead More that are always opening and shut through out the day? Would spraying be okay around the windows?

No big deal, no expense other than electricity, and no unnecessary harmful pesticides inside or outside our home.

So an insecticide can be used on the exterior of the building especially around windows, doors, utility pipes that penetrate the building, and anywhere that these insects can gain entry into the structure. You will also want to treat 3 to 4 feet wide band around the foundation. Be sure to avoid drift of the spray onto your skin and clothing. Lastly, be sure to read the product label before buying. Some over-the-counter products are ready to use and some require mixing into a one or two gallon hand held sprayer. You can get advice from your local home improvement store on what products work best.
