    Hi all,
    One year ago I shut down my grow after loosing to the borg (mites) Threw out the old tents and got new ones. When I tore down the grow I took everything I wanted to save, vent tubes, hanging ratchets, fabric pots and carbon pre-filters and put them in steaming water and let them soak for a bit to kill any eggs. Breaking everything out again repeating the process right now to insure no left over's also gonna sanitize all the tools.
    Here is the issue. I grow in my bedroom with two small tents. Carpeted room has been cleaned up, wiped down and vacuumed. No plant matter in the room for a little over a year, but Im still worried about re-infeststation from dormant eggs in the room.

    Any hints or processes that I can implement to reduce the chances of this happening would be appreciated.

    If it would ease your mind, you could shampoo your carpet.

    How much would replacing the carpets cost you?

    Planning on it, have a shampoo machine sitting on the porch.

    Paint the walls and ceiling while you are busy.
