Hi! Beatles flying in...a very remote
possibility. Invisible beatles' eggs brought in aboard, usually when using cardboard boxes or paper bags when provisioning
, is the pathway to infestation. Another possibility is that a piece of wood, used in the construction, was infested. Boric acid and its derivatives are killers to many of the insects that you'll find on a boat
; CAUTION: Boric acid, does not discriminate, will kill your pets
too! When provisioning
, I usually carry reusable "fish net bags with handles". Small stores in outer islands do not always have the best hygiene/pests extermination.
