It’s only 7 in the morning and I can tell it’s going to be one of those dog hot days of summer. “It works, the fruit fly trap works!” I say to Wayne, as he comes in from his morning run.
The night before, our daughter Meagan said ”We have to do something about getting rid of all those little fruit flies in the kitchen.”
“Aunty Pat says you can make a trap for fruit flies if you cover a bowl of fruit with saran wrap and make holes in it.” So she put some fruit in a margarine container and covered it with saran, using an elastic band to hold it on and went to bed.
This morning, I was the first to discover thirty sugar-buzzed fruit flies crawling around inside the container. And one lone fly circling outside it. (File this in your Helpful Hints folder.)
“Well I’m really glad you caught the fruitflies,” says Wayne sarcastically “because someone left the side door to the garage open and the raccoons have ravaged our garbage again! The garage is a disaster, someone needs to clean it up!”
“Talk about straining out gnats and swallowing camels”, he says shaking his head.
Do you have any Oavkille Raccoon Stories to share?
