2-liter critter catcher brings peace in the shop
While working in my basement shop, I was annoyed by a few noisy crickets. To catch the crickets, I cut the top off a plastic 2-liter soda bottle and reversed it, as shown. I dropped a small piece of tomato into the trap for bait, and the crickets waltzed right in for a snack. It was then a simple matter of relocating the crickets to a place far away from my now-quiet shop and home.—Shirley Overton, East Hampton, N.Y.
