    Hm. I've never done anything but pick them up off the grass and use them. I've never seen a bug. Guess I got lucky.

    I just got some and I hit them on the dark surface of our garbage can little white mites came out & they jump like fleas .I heard on one of these info sites of a person having to get the house fumigated so I'm soaking mine in bleach & will bake after
