. . . . . do not pick up the trap by the front edge while it is open. Don't.
I know this from personal experience.
Joene from Joene's Garden sponsors gardening mistakes, those "oops" we commit and are willing to admit to. You can read other gardening oops (GOOPs) on her blog on the first of every month.
That's mine for this month. Sheesh. It really hurt.
An update as of Friday, Sept. 2: I think Joene must be without power, as there is no GOOPs on her blog this month. A lot of Connecticut is still without electricity even now, six days after tropical storm Irene.
