Yeah, I had a feeling about the boric acid and dock was a temporary solution. I remember reading an article that suggested a few things to try.

I love the CO strategy, but alas, I needed a quick strike yeterday. I am going to use the other two bombs that were in the package in the following weekends to try and remove the hatchlings...then I can think about doing the CO or something else if I notice a rise again.

Boric acid is supposed to be a good wood treatment I don't think there will be any long-term negatives to that...i figure I'll keep the cracks and places like the bottoms of cabinets and the like with that to help control them. Its supposed to last a while, as long as it stays dry.

After the fumagation, I wash down all the common areas and I have all my sheets/cushions/dishes/etc, already removed. So hopefully I'm reducing the toxicity a little...I have a large fan that I blow in the cabin from the cockpit to keep everything aired out.
