Mornin allCoffee
Can someone tell me how to get rid of gnats without using insect poisons. I think they came in on some oranges, and they are taking over the ketchen. We are keeping foods sealed and put up and dirty dishes are going straight to the dishwasher when we are done with them. We've been killing them the old fashined way, but as soon as we think we have them under control we'll move something and a dust cloud of gnats rises up, and the swating begins.

My grandma uses it in her country kitchen to keep the knats controlled.  She does a lot of canning and makes jellies and stuff in there so normally a steady supply of fruit flies.

Likely these are not gnats but are a species of fruit fly. Once the rotting fruit is removed, their days are numbered. You can get some traps that use attractants (like vinegar for example) to capture the little buggars. Just Goggle fruit fly traps. If that's not what you want, suck the rascals up in a vacuum (HEPA filtered is the best).

If we're not suppose to eat animals...how come they're made of meat?

Evening fellas.
 
Work completely blocked the OT....guess they finally caught up with me lol.
 
Anyhooo, have my 6.8 SPC (black widow Big Grin) upper and lower put together.
 
I'll put up pics ASAP. I can't believe how much tighter the tolarances are between the billet receivers over my forged BCM (which was still a GREAT rifle).
 
It's FAR lighter as well with the tubular top rail only handguard (Samson Evo 11") although i have 3 other sectons that came with it, that can be attached anywhere which is sweeeeeet!
 
I need optics yet but i think i may cream my pants over the Geissele trigger. I went with the Super 3 gun trigger and it's about as close to perfect as you can get.
 
I'm getting close to having enough scratch put together for optics and a good sling. Been saving like crazy but had to do the respectful thing and buy my wife and family some darn Christmas presents Big GrinWink

Mornin allCoffee
Update on the fruit fly war; day 5 of the invasion. After recieving vital intelligence from allies (BugsnBows and SVT-tactical)), new tactics and stratagies were put into place and vital new weapons were placed into the procurement process. As of last evening, it seemed as if our new field expiedent weapons (fruit fly trap) were performing with deadly efficency. Vital supplies (food sources) were being denied to the enemy, and more intelligence was being gathered by our vast intelligence network (internet). However, the enemy has launched a counter offensive this morning that has retaken the gains made yesterday. A reconisance drone was spotted early this morning in our rear staging area (the bathroom), but evaded our anti-flycraft fire. When the new super weapons (fruit fly trap) were approached for inspection, the enemy launched their massive attack. While the concentration of forces seemed to have been weakened, it was soon evident that the enemy was attacking on a broader front and we were soon outflanked and had to withdraw to asses the situation. Some of the new tactics and stratagies were rapidly employed. At this point Command and Control (wife) decided it was time to procure a new super weapon (fly paper) recommended by allies. We have since identified a secret base and supply depot (rotting hedge applies ) and destroyed it. New supper weapons (fruit fly traps and fly paper) are being procured at this time. The cost has been high, but our valient forces are bravely fighting this evil, dispickable, and devious enemy (fruit flys) and VICTORY is just within our grasp.
