If you read the label, some are not explosive.

BUG bomb use?

I suggest bombing and leaving the boat sealed to really fumigate. Then a strong anti bacterial cleaning occurs to remove the residue. take your cushions and otherwise and either use a local laundry to wash out soak and air dry at home. However, I partially agree with the poster who likes the spiders. Typically, a really good cleaning of the boat will eradicate the bulk of your bug issue. I'm more concerned with mold, myself.
Zeehag has a good point. I could've sworn I saw a key west cockroach wearing a backpack as he made his/her way across our companionway

Re: BUG bomb use?

I am a firm believer in chemical control of all things crawly. Each time a leave a country or long term anchorage especially in the tropics. Typically every 28 days I bomb the boat , open all lockers cover bedding and work surfaces with news paper let bomb of and lock up boat and sail out the harbour for the next destination. After 3hrs I open the boat and give it a good airing. Spiders I don't like but cockroaches are evil.

Re: BUG bomb use?

i used bug bombs in houses--they worked. i used bug bombs in boats--they didnt work. i spray the bee jeezis out of everywhhere on boat with surface spray and i will also try the borax....
save your dough and dont buy bug bombs that do not work in boats. remember you have bilges and other places that do not open entirely so bugs can hide from the bug bombs..imagine your surprise when you poison your boat thoroughly, then come back to ....BUGS!!!!!!!!!!!

you dont have to worry about exploding your boat due to poison--it just doesnt work ...you will still have bugs. boats are not like houses.

Yikes. What would you do, if you had an emergency down below?

I don't think viewers should try this method at home.
