Re: Wasp, Dirt Dobbers?

well I stand corrected, I thought as I was writing the original statement about our accident in the Army which was very bad. Thinking nope bad stuff but they sell it on the shelf.

NOPE they don't. you can get bleach or ammonia but not both. I apologize for the confusion

Sorry, I have to remain skeptical about any safe mixture of chlorine and ammonia, until I see an example.

While not totally acceptable around here. I spray the perimeter of my boat twice a year with Ortho Home defense. I pay close attention to all the nooks and crannies that little critters like to hide.
After the boat is washed and waxed in the spring. She gets a good spray before she goes in.
I guarantee this will work! No if ands or buts. The people with the pretty powerboats taught me this. Ortho Home Defense MAX Perimeter & Indoor Insect Killer

So do all living things because they combine to make chloramine vapor, which is extremely TOXIC. Please don't mix these two and hang around.

Easy, use your boat often. Dirt Dobbers wont use boats that are used often. They prefer boats that sit.
My boat was infested during restoration work. Once I moved aboard however I have had not one instance.
