This is a trick I learned from my grandmother when they lived in North Carolina. They had a dog that was always outside romping around in the woods. He would often bring home little hitchhikers, and this was Nana's solution.
The best part about this trap is that there are no chemicals to worry about your pets or small children coming into contact with.
Step 1: things you will need
- A small desktop style lamp
- A shallow bowl. I found that the cheap aluminum pie tins work great for this, but if you don't have one of those any shallow bowl will do until you get one.
- Liquid Soap
- enough water to fill the bowl about half to three quarters full
