We’ve pretty much eradicated the roach problem we got from the flophouse next door in the house with boric acid and baits, but a friend of my boyfriend’s just moved into the garage and there’s a much bigger problem out there. (Closer to said flophouse, never had any cats living there, etc.) We did put down the baits and boric acid, but she has to live there now, you know? And it’s a big problem.
So she’s going to be out of town for the weekend and we considered doing the bomb thing, since she hasn’t put out any of her kitchen stuff yet and there’s not a lot she’d have to worry about in the “things you eat off” arena. However, the garage is a huge mess - tons of my boyfriend’s clothes upstairs, a classic car and two motorcycles downstairs, etc. Is the residue a problem for paint jobs? What about clothing and such? How dangerous is it in general?
