    Fly Paper Recipe

    2 cups milk

    2 tablespoons black pepper

    2 tablespoons granulated sugar

    2 tablespoons brown sugar

    Brown paper bags, cut into strips

    Bring all ingredients except paper bag strips to a boil for 5 minutes. Reduce heat, Simmer uncovered 5 minutes longer, until thickened, and then cool.

    Carefully Wind the brown paper strips into a tight roll and drop them into the mixture until saturated. Carefully rewind the strips and allow them air dry on a cookie sheet until they are just tacky to the touch.

    To use, suspend the strips with a thumbtack wherever flies are a problem.

    Caution: Keep this away from pets and children.

      This will be so useful. Does it matter what percent fat the milk is?
