Re: Removing Can Labels for roaches or bugs?
Cockroach control is on every cruisers mind. Most anchor and don't tie up much so the danger is bringing them aboard. No paper bags and no cardboard. That usually does the trick. No need to take labels off cans. Just some sensible precautions and you should be bug free. Biggest danger is when the boat is laid up for the summer in Florida. We use Sun-Pacs when we store the boat. Keeps the boat free of mildew and, as a side benefit, kills anything and everything aboard. We make sure to air out the boat before boarding.
Toronto in summer, Bahamas in winter.
