Fly Paper

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.
