We spent more time than ever outside last Spring and summer and, with our new addition, continue to rack up the hours outdoors! As a funny side note, I was thinking yesterday how I always say I’m not an outdoors person. However, the only spaces I have ever wanted larger in this house are all outdoors. :-)
We usually battle a nasty little problem around here – FLIES! Not on the screened porch, but IN the house. I swear, they came in every time we opened the door. (Which was essentially every three minutes between the boys and the dog.) I finally did some research last year and ended up with the Big Bag Fly Trap. It is cheap and it works miracles!
The bag made a considerable difference within days last summer, but I already have two up this spring to hopefully nip those boogers in the bud (one in the front and one in the back). We hung it in a tree near the garage as that is where most were getting in. It does smell, so it isn’t something you’d want in super closer proximity to where you frequently hang out. You can see that I fashioned a sturdy hook out of a coat hanger. I’m sure there are tools for this, but I didn’t want to chance it falling and Elsa getting into it.
