Wasp trap full of pesky wasps
Fly trap *not* full of pesky flies
We are plagued with wasps nesting in the deck railing - they fly in at the juncture of the stair railing and the main railing. We bought decoys wasp hives (supposedly they see it and flee - HA!). I won't use pesticides and I would not let The Engineer wall them inside their nest to starve to death. So I gave them the final meal option of tasty hot dogs, a hearty alcoholic haze with beer and a swim. And it is working.
Inside the stupid flies turn up their collective noses at hot dogs, beer, honey, raw hamburger - nothing entices them into the trap.
Tar is doing his best to catch them. But a 125 lb. goofy Labrador leaping around the house brings its own dangers...
Thankfully the gnomes realize that getting into the wasps' beer would be inadvisable.
