No see um nugs

Asked May 24, 2017, 9:07 PM EDT

We have been told we have no see um bugs. They are biting me but not my husband. Have had exterminator treat house inside and out. They are in my car and at my office at work. What they sprayed with helps for a few days but does not get rid of them. Where do they lay eggs and how do you kill the eggs?

The eggs are laid on moist surfaces or in water. They eggs are very small and you are unlikely to see them. Your best bet it to wear repellent. Here is a fact sheet FYI. Thanks.
