Black Fly Control

Sweet pickle fly trap!

Thank you to Regina of Leap of Faith farm for the solution to our summer fly problems!
Step 1: Buy sweet pickles. 
Step 2: Eat the pickles, save the juice.
Step 3: Use a Philips head screwdriver and a hammer to tap 4 holes on the top, big enough for flies to get in.
Step 4: Wait two days for results like these, even with the ridiculous amounts of rain we’ve had.

No, Dill pickles won’t work. Has to be sweet to attract the flies. You can use a mix of ACV, water, and sugar as suggested by Ronald from Allan Homesteading.
