1joyceh is on a distinguished road
I use 'takedown', a pyrethrin that is one of a few I know that will actually kill eggs of the 'devil's spawn', as I call them. Since you can never get them all, I start using azadirachtin on a weekly basis. The azadirachtin kills the appetite, and prevents sexual maturing, so the reproduction cycle is interrupted. It is a secondary metabolite present in the neem tree seeds, the one I use is OMRI.
