peppers and barnacles

I can't help with the barnacle larvae, but for the habaneros I have a 
suggestion.  There is an anti-arthritic creme called Zostrix that 
contains a measured amount (0.25%) of the active ingredient of habaneros,
a molecule called capsaicin.  I think this is a prescription medication, 
but maybe a local pharmacist can tell you if there is an over the counter
version you can buy easily. The advantage of using this creme is that 
you will know exactly how much you are applying.  Good luck!
