Fly traps

Re posting this.

Make several of these fly traps, they work so well. Take an empty 2 litre bottle, add one banana peel, one cup sugar and one cup apple cider vinegar. Fill to where the top starts to curve or a little higher. Cap and shake to dissolve the sugar. Take the cap off, hang by a wire in trees and bushes. Especially near the animal pens. We used these by the tons on our farm. So cheap. When full, cap and throw away. If you use twine the squirrels will chew them and they will fall. If they do fall, there is nothing there that will hurt animals or children. These are really amazing. I found the recipe in an Amish cook book years ago and have used it every since.
