    I was having a serious infestation in my back yard and needed a quick and effective method to drive the flies away for good. After a few days they are no more! Give this a try but make sure you keep the trap away from where you hang out... they stink! 👌

      Flies have life cycles, as all things.
      Bit ignorant to suggest a fly trap will "drive the flies away for good".

      No. For fruit flies, use apple cider vinegar and a drop of dish soap. Fruit flies love apple cider vinegar

      LORD NO! lf you mix honey and shrimp it's a deadly cocktail, just like mixing ammonia and bleach. Besides, that adage about catching more flies with honey is an old wives tale.

      Probly not as well because the meat in Bologna is cooked. it would be better to use some sort of rami like raw chicken but it would pry work it'll just take longer for the meter sour and smell real bad. the point of it is to have some stinky meat.

      My Dollar Store fly traps look like flower stickers and are sticky on both sides. They stick to my window. They haven't caught a single fly. I'm pretty sure somebody repackaged kids' stickers as fly traps. I went to a different store, tried a different brand of window fly traps and those work great.

    I have had all types of flies. I have had absolute Hercules type flies that are massive but slow. Easy to kill, for they are dumb. But right now, I’m dealing with the most cunning, quiet, small, and fast fly in my room. It’s super sensitive to movement and hides under my bed and around my room in hidden places. Still trying to catch him!

    1:14 an even easier way is to cut the top of the bottle off and invert it into the remaining bottle half, use some tape it if isn't right enough and done! Re-usable fly trap, just remove the tape (if used) empty the bottle, reset the content and put on the inverted top again.

      Very Strange, but it's working .
