How the fuck do these mother fuckers keep getting into my apartment?
My place is spotless and usually always is, sink is empty, bathroom is dry, no leaks in any pipes, the only place I can think of is the dishwasher that's backing up, but I never use it and it seals closed so I don't bother
I don't have plants or any fruits/veg laying around. All my food is in the fridge or in the counter.
I put out vinegar traps and in two weeks, they caught about 10 total. So it's not like I have an infestation, but they're getting in somehow

>>1000154 They may be drain flys, not fruit flies. We once got a small "infestation" in our clean apartment because they did some maintenance on the pipes and these fuckers showed up.
The problem is that they reproduce so quickly, like in a matter of hours, so you have to get rid of all of them at the same time. What finally worked for us was leaving lit candels right next to every drain in the apartment, then turning off all of the lights. Since the only light the flies could see was the candels, they would... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Ive had a straight infestation fixed by putting some old fruit or wine in dish soapy water, in a jar with a cone or seran wrap trap, anything with a small opening. They cant resist the scent of fermentaion, and they cant eacape the surface tension of the soapy water
How do you guys who live at home embark on diy projects?
I am 25 but live with my parents because this area is economically very expensive and I don't make enough to live alone. I want to do DIY to try and make home feel like I belong here but am having difficulty in doing so
My main idea is that I want to build an outhouse in the back garden primarily for myself. My parents deny me however, and insist I am not allowed to do so.
Their primary arguments against the outhouse are ridiculous and all have very easy, logical counterpoints.

I can't imagine how disappointed your parents are in you. You're 25, living at home because you don't earn enough to move out, and your solution to the situation is to build yourself a private shithouse in their yard? Outstanding.
You should have told them you want to build a shed for other projects, then dug a pit inside and shit in that without them knowing.
>>999191 I will grant that building an outhouse would be preferable to seeing their son secretly shitting in the garden, but lets be honest here, both are well below the threshold of acceptable behavior for an adult trying to make their parents proud.
>>997093 Nope. Manufacturing jobs are going to be going away worldwide over the next century. Labor costs in the third world are raising, international shipping ain't getting any cheaper or faster, and the cost of automated manufacturing is going down year by year. The factories will come back because, with labor costs much reduced and infrastructure in the first world being better, it will be cost competitive and simpler to produce nearer your customers. That said, those factories will being employing dozens of people and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>997109 look forward to a bright future with universal basic income. You can afford a cubical sized apartment that will make the one on fith element look spacious. But its ok you'll be zonked out on legal pot and staring into your oculus rift all day.
>>1004453 what a waste, the books look like they will collect a lot of dust and you cant even read them. This is a stupid idea. If you use bad books make it seem like you read that shit, If you use good books it is sad that you destroyed them.
How are you going to clean your floor without the books getting wet you should have put a baseboard How stupid are you.
Besides why are there 6 twilight books in there. I would not want that on my bookshelf and you put it on your wall. How did you even get these books?
I have a robot toy that I never threw away. Now I want to salvage it for the electronics inside and the motors in his limbs but I have no idea what these electronics are and if they are worth salvaging. What are these? Also will post more if you want me to.
>>1003984 those are all basic parts. If you have a multimeter you can test if a lot of those are good. The transistors will be a bit hard to use without datasheets but you can test the values of those too (although that would require a little knowledge of electronics and building circuits)
Hello there /diy/, I'm looking for some sort of information that serves as an all encompassing guide to woodworking/carpentry. Essentially, I want to get to be able to make simple furniture, tables, chairs, desks etc.
Does anyone know of any books that serve as a good introductory guide?
It's quite literally a box, wiring, drivers, and cones. Driver and cones will end up costing the most if you want the same ones in name brand cabs. The housing is shaped and designed with acoustic physics in mind so your best bet is to copy one exactly. Then all that's left is to wire it up and make it pretty.
>>1003802 >It's quite literally a box, wiring, drivers, and cones.
What are cross-overs? What are amplifiers? Please, tell me how you can have a bass, treble and volume adjustments using only wires? Do you just throw some drivers in a box and call it a day? Cause you sure are making it sound simple... But it ain't. The only thing simple here is you.
This is my attic I'm trying to convert into a loft bedroom. Just finished getting closed cell insulating down and put up vapor barrier. I wanted to put up wood paneling for the walls but all my local home depot and rona have is shitty looking knotty pine and it's expensive as hell. I'm in Canada if that means anything.
sup /diy/ need some help finishing up this very incomplete diagram of some lights I need for night fishing, trick part is that one switch needs to turn on both lights, while the other on switch needs to turn only the back light on for anchor.
>>1002544 Every fucking year we have a nice little gardening festival in our neighborhood. Guess who shows up and wrecks up the place with their little plastic fucking tracks and their little scale models of Santa's shitty workshop? TRAINFAGS. You faggots have no decency, sitting in your yard chairs huffing and puffing about those kids trying to get past your shitty rope tied to two by fours that protect your stupid little plastic trains. They're not special you cunt. You special snowflakes don't belong at a FUCKING... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
