I think the eggs can survive for at least several years, anyway. If you are worried you could try borax - We had a really bad infestation a few years back and tried so many different things. It was the only one that worked, and it's non toxic. This is sounding like an ad... no I don't sell it. It dries them out and breaks the life cycle. I'd imagine DE (diatomaceous earth) would be similar, cuts them up or something.

Maybe kaumea had better borrow muri's vacuum cleaner. Might be quite a thrill.
