    Industrial Fly Trap

    Orange juice or even tea made all the difference. Without it, it probably has no taste. You must live in a different area. This got rid of all ants, red, black, carpenter. etc. here in Eastern Ontario.

    Clean or not, there still go after garbage, compost, cat food etc. When we lived in the burbs it wasn't an issue at all. Here in the woods I am told that ants could have nests 50 feet away in a tree trunk and still parade through your house.

    Great idea. Thanks for sharing. We don't really have a fly problem since it is quite windy here, but we did have an ant problem. If ants are a problem for you, a simple solution is a bottle cap, with a bit of cotton batting (now-a-days only found in pill bottles) in it, and poured over with a small quantity of a mixture of 5 parts water, 4 parts white sugar, 1 part borax, 1 part orange juice all mixed to suspension. Within a week all ants are gone. The orange juice or any flavoured juice is essential as it adds flavour that attracts the ants.
