Certainly by now everyone has heard something about the fast approaching fiscal cliff. With only 5 days left until we "fall off" of the cliff. Now I won't lie I really tend to over think things but with shows like Doomsday Preppers it is hard not to. If 5 days pass and the government can't get their heads out of their butts what do you think will happen?? Are you doing anything to prepare??
We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol
