I'd like to make a horsefly trap with a black bucket covered in non-setting glue. YouTube has many examples and they seem to catch the things. Horsefl y trap glue is available to buy, but not especially cheap. Price is one rea son why I'd like to make my own, but general curiosity is the main reason.
Requirements: -Non setting and adequate viscosity to stick bugs on contact -Weatherproof (remains in situ and retains physical properties after exposu re to showers -not attractive to other insects by smell (I imagine that this rules out sw eet/sugary solutions)
