    Question Top Bar Sticky Board

    Does anyone have any ideas about how I can obtain or rig up a sticky board for a 48" long bottom? Mine swings out on a hinge so it's easy to check for mites and for clean out.

    You could cover the bottom with wax-paper or cling-film(possibly with paper underneath for visibility), and then brush some vaseline on it.

    Or, you may get some sturdy plastic that you cut into a suitable size.

    I have found some 3mm white plastic-sheet that I think was 150*50cm in a construction store(for roofing under terraces). They might not have the same sheets at your side of the pond though.

    Sorry but I don't know what "tack paper" is. Where can I get it?

    Sure! I remember that stuff! I remember when I was a kid, people were plastering it all over the place - tables, counters, kitchen cabinets! People went wild for it. Thanks!

    There is spray on sticky available from drafting stores, but I had the impression that it doesn't need to be very sticky to catch the mites. I've heard PAM mentioned.
