      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?
