Re: Forgot to say thanks


Someone published instructions awhile back.   I'll have my hubby will type the instructions based on how he did it.
 
Use a 2 liter clear bottle. Cut the top 1/3rd off the bottle. Remove the cap and turn the top third of the bottle upside down and insert it into the other part of the bottle. There should be a couple of inches of clearance from the bottom in order to accumulate the slimy little creatures.  Pour some beer into the bottom.  This device is then dug into the ground so they can climb right in. Empty the bottle everyday for tasty eating and add beer back to capture more.
 
"Boy oh Boy"... I asked hubby where that tasty eating came from... He told me it was part of the instructions that he remembered most clearly because it made him laugh.   I'll get a digital pic and send it soon.  Also IF
someone can remember the depth requirements I'd appreciate that (hubby did not remember that).
