How about just un capping them and putting empty ballons over the necks?

Rather than bleeding the pressure every few days and worrying about forgetting to. Just let the ballon fill, glance at it every once in a while and when the ballon is getting big release the pressure and re apply.

Whats the worst that can happen? You have a ballon go flying out from the closet and your room smells like apfelwein?

A friend's original recipe called for doing that w/ balloons w/ a pin-prick in the top... they'd still fill, but would adjust themselves if they got too full. Man, humans are inventive. (Me, I'm still using a little twig to get the ants out of the anthill.)

Hmm, spread out a few smashed cockroachs on a ?clean? leaf, wait for them to fill up and then lick it all off. Learned that trick from someone who I suspect may be below apes on the evolutionary scale.
Apes that use sticks to pick out ant's are lucky to reproduce. They tend to be paying attention to ants when the females walk by.
