Bug work: Call Melissa!

Melissa did a bunch of research and decided that we wanted to do an anti-bug treatment on our beams before we started putting a varnish on them, so she went with 'borrada D', which is somewhat not as toxic as some; it's borate based, but one doesn't want anything in extremes, so of course Melissa wanted to take the precautions:

She's actually using an old pump-pressure sprayer that I salvaged from a construction lot guy who was going out of business. hand powered AND free. love it.
