Here I am...congratulating myself about my very "clever" alliterative blog titles lately...YAY ME!!
Out to the Owl this weekend. Will be preparing for a short cruise in two weeks. Excited about that...BUT...
I have roaches! And I don't leave any food onboard most weeks. However, the owner before me lived on her too, and I would guess they are into their 200th generation or something.
Yes, I know this is Florida....but I am going to be living out there come the first of July and I am researching the possible options.
Number One: I can pay a professional service $70.00 for a guaranteed year free from bugs...I think this may be the best solution. Perhaps.
Number Two: Mix honey or syrup with boric acid to make a putty consistency. Then place small smears of it in strategic places on the boat.
Number Three: Use a bug bomb. I can do this if I prepare. I don't know how really effective they are.
Number Four: Use a type of insecticide suitable for houses, and spray everything. Fifty times.
So, does anyone have any input on any of these ideas? I admit I am frugal, so Number Four is looking better and better since I already own some insecticide that will work.
Dreaming the life and living the dream. Stay safe and dry!
