Pickled beet root for fly control

default Pickled beet root for fly control

Post by GB on 12th June 2012, 11:07 pm

Who knew?

I needed vinegar asap and the only stuff I had to hand was the juice of some pickled beetroots.

So I put it in my small hive beetle traps with some oil but the entire time I was shooing the flies away so I thought hmmmmmmm................

And so I put two drops of washing up liquid into the remaining vinegar juice to break the surface tention and put it outside where the flies were teh worst.

Today I scooped over two inches of flies out of the jar just so the live ones would have room to drown themselves.

Know what?

Chickens like pickled flies Laughing

Laugh and the world laughs with you, laugh hysterically, for no apparent reason, and they'll leave you alone!

The Gods answer all our prayers. Unfortunately, sometimes, the answer is no!
