Re: Roaches !!!

My wife is an expert on killing them... she has 6 yrs of Caribbean experience

First go to home depot and get the ammo!

Treat the lines and fenders with Ortho insect spray to help prevent them getting aboard. You need a gallon!

Boaric acid in all the bilges and cupboards.

Bag or remove all food from the cupboards and refrigerator and then bomb the boat twice while you are in a hotel.

Repeat all of the above as necessary.

It works but you need to do it quickly before they breed for the tenth time.

Change marina!
