Hint#1: I also use a metal dog dish instead of a pie tin. I cut a piece of 1/2x1/2 wire to put over the dish. Bend it over the dog dish. I use an electric Xmas candle withnightlight. Lay the candle light on top of the wire. Best to put the dish on the floor. Fill dish with soapy water. Each water methods works. Does catch fleas.
Hint#2: I also tried a regular night light plugged into the outlet. Find a flea sticky pad and jam the pad under the outlet cover top edge, sticky side out, to stand up against the wall. It is not that easy to find the sticky pads though. Raid had a good one, but I think it has been discontinued. Kids or pets may get stuck on the pad, though. Just another idea.
What about clear contact paper, it's on a roll. I don't remember if what you use had a color, but maybe you could use a sheet of construction paper under it.
I just ordered a Victor flea trap with sticky paper and nightlight from Amazon and they have the refills, too. If you go to www.amazon.com and type in flea trap in the search area, it will probably bring up the refills, too. Hope you have success fighting fleas, they sure can be a pain. :-(
