Feel Good Inspirational Stones

There are more than 100,000 species of flies, but they have one thing in common.  They are disease carriers and humans should avoid contact with them if possible. They are not worthy of personalized friendship gifts. They reproduce quickly and the only way to control them is to kill them before they make you sick. Here are some ideas to deal with them.

If you try to swat a fly, aim slightly behind the fly.  Sometimes, they lift off backwards.  Be very quiet and move slowly as flies see very well and have quick reflexes.  Another aid is homemade flypaper.  Here is how to make it.  Measure a tablespoon of brown sugar, another of granulated sugar and 1/4 cup of cheap table syrup. Now mix the concoction in a bowl.  Get a plain brown paper bag and cut it into 6 inch strips about 2 inches wide. Place the strips on a cookie sheet and allow them to soak up the mixture for eight hours.  Place a small hole in one end of the strips and hang them where needed.  Throw the little buggers out with the trash.
