Drowning in Yellow

Standard

20160308A.jpgOne way to catch fungus gnats, these annoying tiny black flies that flit around your home and bother your guests, but whose larvae actually live in the soil of your houseplants, is to take a yellow bowl (or to paint a bowl yellow), fill it with water, and place it among the infested plants. Attracted by the color of the bowl, adult gnats will fall into the water and drown.

(Sometimes insect control is much easier than you thought!)
