An easy and inconspicuous way to keep flies from buzzing around inside of your home is to set a simple trap outside. Baited with some sweetened water or another attractive substance, a fly trap set in a hidden area will quickly lure ordinary houseflies. Flies smell the bait and fly into the bottle to get to it (either to lay eggs or to feed). Once inside, they are easily trapped as they fly down the neck of the trap. Flies will become trapped because they can’t navigate back up the narrow opening or they will be unable to fly if their wings get wet. To maintain the trap, empty the dead flies and re-bait your trap regularly. If you decide to use meat or animal droppings (chicken litter, rabbit pellets) as bait, you’ll also need to destroy any larvae that you find in your trap. Rinsing the bottle out with hot water should do the trick. Dimensions: 105mm x 178mmH.
