Making Fly Paper

This solution is for outdoors not inside, but in the south comes in handy. Take a black plastic planter pot and paint it thoroughly with red transmission fluid and hang it where deer flies, horse flies, and such are and they will get stuck to it.


Another solution, to catch white flies in the garden, take yellow plastic of any kind or you could paint a board yellow and when dry paint it good with oil. They are drawn to yellow. You can also use food oil for the white fly catcher.

I'd be terribly afraid that a dog or cat or any wild animal would lick the antifreeze from the container (even if it is hung high, it can still fall if a raccoon decides to climb to it)

To Ann -- Transmission fluid is not antifreeze. It is the red colour that attracts the insects. And I don't believe it has the sweet taste that antifreeze has, which is why so many animals drink it in the winter when there is no water to drink.
