A Harvest of a Completely Different Kind

I wish "Poop on a newspaper guy" knew that flies are just as interested in a mixture of

1 cup of water
1/3 cup of corn syrup (finally an appropriate use for corn syrup!)
2/3 cup of apple cider vinegar

I made trap on Tuesday and had to empty it this morning and start over again today. For whatever reason, they want nothing to do with it once they are inside my house. But it gives me great pleasure to know I've taken these ones out!
It was pretty hilarious when the Orkin Man came yesterday, signing up new customers. He just had to know what was in that thing!
