I am going to build a new hard sided one. I will leave that one on the lake that I did most of my spearing last year. Then I still have my portable if I want to go somewhere else.

If you got time look for one on a garage sale or auction you would be amazed at what you can find. The one that i have my uncle picked it up in the cites for $50 buck a nice little 4x6 canvas one. I'm hoping to build a 6x10 perm with two holes to take my kids with. Had many a good times with my granpa in a two hole house.

Check out Canvas Craft. They make awesome spear houses that are very dark and will last a very long time.

Anyone thinking of getting a new house or rebuilding there house for next years spearing season!!

I picked up a new (to me) 8 X 8 X 8 portable clamm sleeper and I am in the process of converting it to a 2 hole portable spear house.

I am sewing a bunch of moving blankets together to make an insulated cover for it.

I will open up the holes in diagonal corners so there will be two 2 ft X 3 ft spearing holes.

I was thinking of selling the 4X6 canvas portable but now I am thinking I will leave it out on my main spearing lake.

The other option (if I could sell both of those houses) would be to use the money I get out of those to put against the cost of a new 8 X 8 insulated canvas craft.

    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
