Pray without ceasing. Test everything. Keep what is good. Avoid all evil. -1 Thess 5:17,21,22
I do a lot of posts for my convenience.. The blog stores odd little bits of information, and it's searchable. Like the particular make and model of mixing valves I have in my showers, and exactly when I built or installed something. That always gets blogged, and it's always there if I need to remember it several years down the road.I'll have to look for the flypaper. I wonder if it works on yellow jackets?
We catch yellow jackets by the gross when canning cider. There are always cider jugs that have just a wee bit of cider left in them. They seem to be attracted to the fermenting cider. They drown.Supposedly, hanging a fish carcass over a tub of water...perhaps with a squirt of dish detergent added...works well. The yellow jackets gorge themselves and they lose altitude upon take-off. And into the drink they go. I suppose one could hang the remnants of a filleted fish (hate to waste a good one) and dangle fly paper around it. You would nail some of them coming and going.Best regards.-Joe
I can always tell when the mouse traps have a carcass in them by the buzzing flies- it is amazing how they can pick up on carrion.
