((hugs)) LP. Hope you feel all better in the morning.

I'm getting off DC and paying a few bills. Tried going to bed early last night and didn't fall asleep till after 5:00AM. Tonight I'll crash into bed around four and go right to sleep (I hope). Earplugs are going to be a blessing in the AM when everyone fires up their lawnmowers.

'Night all!

Looking at a spider crawling up the wall. A big one. Oops, he's dead now. We had a lot of stroms come through last week, and I seem to have more bugs than usual, plus a bat or two. The bugs are easy to deal with, but bats can be disconcerting.

Pest-wise, the guys that get me are the fuitflies that hang around the cats' wet catfood crumbs. How do they get in? I resorted to hanging a flystrip over the dishes. Charming.

We found that washing our bananas the minute we bring them home really cuts down on fruitflies. Also, cutting the top part off a plastic bottle, inverting it into the bottom part, and pouring in some cider vinegar takes care of them. They fly in and can't get out.

But. But. They say you can catch more flies with honey!

Thanks, Dawg. I vaguely remembered some tip about vinegar, but not the specifics. I'm on my way to grab a bottle asap. If vinegar doesn't work, I'll send for the honey.

You guys are funny.

I had my best luck in a fruit fly trap with banana peels. Probably because that's what they came in on.
