Oooh thanks for the cooking tip acidcat. I didn't know you could use marmite in those ways like instead of salt or on steak. mm intewesting. ^-^
Oh yukkkk. Marmite is like Vegemite - a sort of edible masochism, satanic excrement, and just not at all nice. However, I did read in my gardening book, that if you place some in water in the bottom of a plastic bottle, add urine, and then cut a hole in the bottle and suspend it in a fruit tree, it kills the Queensland fruit fly........
Are you going to try it. Do you want to though? Why would you want to kill a fly anyway is it a pest?
mmm vegemite is scrummy too.
The Queensland fruit fly is a dreadful pest - last year it saw off the fruit of my entire mandarin tree, not to mention the peach tree.
I'm looking for a slightly less tacky recipe to lure the little pests to a watery death.
Ah well. I always think it's a shame when you get that, species that are 'pests' and make things difficult for us making us want to get rid of them or kill them like how that fly is affecting your fruit so you have to do something about it.
Assuming direct control...
