Getting rid of BGA

It can work Dave... But if the BGA comes back, it can grow even much
faster... especially if it has started from substrate, which is almost the
case... Well if you want to destroy BGA, which is a bacteria, as you know,
the only way is to add and antibiotic that can kill it without killing
filtering bacteriae: erythromycin.

Naturally, this has to be done in a severe case....
