I don't run the dehumidifier at the same time as fumigating because my dehumidfiers have air filters and the whole point of fumigating is not to filter out the stuff they're putting into the air. I don't think there's any danger of having the dehumidifier on, though.
I know what you are talking about. If you seriously eamine your wall and ceiling, you will find these "insects" everywhere in hundreds pieces. It is common in dark and high humidity or corners of the wall.
These insects are very common in HONG KONG especially you awlays turn on your air conditioner at night and turn off it when you are out. In this way, the mold will be attached (minor or major) to your wall.
They will not jump but will walk around your apartments.
Trust me. Dehumidifier or fumigator will NOT kill these insects for sure.
You can leave me your email address if you want to kill them all.

No, I never work for Pet Control Company.
I meet the same problem a few weeks ago and resolve it after some research.
I need to send Kate some pictures how to kill the insects via email address and of course Kate needs to buy something at her own.
Why do you think that I work in the company?
You could instead post the pictures up over here for the benefit of anyone else in the same situation, now or in future.
That would, of course, go against your interests if you worked for pest control, hence the preference for dealing via PMs.
Out of interest, why are apartments that are newly renovated MORE prone to these things?
For sure I am NOT working for any control company and I have no interest in earning any money from here. I leave a message here is to help ppl who really need help.
Sorry that I do not know how to post pictures here (maybe I am computer idiot?) Can any teach me how to attach pictures here first?
