On another Thread some other ATS member was giving me sheet for using Mosquito Joe's to treat my yard for insects. Golly, so in 30 years of home
ownership I used a pesticide service once for insects and terminated the service after five months. Whatever.
Anyway onto the subject here. I am going to submit the following to the AOC group in Congress for their recognition and approval of my recommended
"green" and new method of liquid insect control for the Control and Termination by death of Palmetto Bugs. You know the 3" long trophy size roaches
that somehow can get into ones home in the Southern United States. [See Picture Attached] Right Click mouse over pic to enlarge.
One night as we were enjoying our Made in USA
Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine I must have had one too many and headed inside for dinner, obviously
forgetting my glass of wine. That being said I left a fresh glass of Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine on the elevated rear deck porch overnight on a
steamy hot night back in July of 2019 in South Carolina just outside of Columbia. I cant speak for Texas but they grown em big down here in the
So the following Saturday morning I head out with a cup of coffee and holy roachee batman as take a look at the picture. Using simple cheap arse
"boxed" Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine as produced by Franzia, we seduced, invited, intoxicated and induced death by drowning; six  trophy sized
Franzia is a brand of wine produced by The Wine Group, known for its box wines sold in 3 and 5-liter cartons. Franzia wines, throughout their
history, were known as affordable table wines, popular in the 1960s and 1970s as "jug wine", and now as "box wine".
I mean as a privileged middle age white man and Mrs. who had to work on an employer generated W2 our entire life without those special tax deductions
as enjoyed by persons in the restaurant business did you think we can afford high end bottled wine? Hay no. Actually, Franzia, sooks and the boxes are
always heavily damaged. I often wonder if the low cost @ $14.99 per 5 liter box is because the sellers source is from train derailments as in that
stuff is supposed to be destroyed and not sold.
Anyway back to the Palmetto bugs. When I encountered them they were DOA as in no movement. I hope they enjoyed their last sip of wine as there were so
many in the glass no others could have joined them and get in on the fun. That glass was full of them. Yuk. I took a picture for proof as my Southern
neighbors are always skeptical of Yankees along with our methods, practices and superstitions.
The bad news is that that same remaining liquid was useless after one night. Meaning those Palmetto Bugs prefer fresh Red Wine and will NOT tolerate
one day old red wine that was left over and exposed to the atmosphere. They must be Connoisseurs.
Well that's my true story and since July we no longer drink that nasty stuff and have moved on to Vella as it tastes better. But I will continue to
bait Palmetto Bugs outdoors with the Franzia 5 litre boxes as I can get 28  ounce treatments at $0.54 cents a treatment. Now that's cost effective
and lots of dead roaches!
