Last week I had a swarm of flies enter my home. I decided to finally do this quick DIY project I had seen by one of my favorite bloggers, One Good Thing by Jillee and another blogger Going Home to Roost.What do you need?
- A paper grocery bag
- A single hole punch
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup honey or corn syrup
- 2 Tablespoons water
This sound like a great idea! Super easy peasy. Unfortunately,the mixture never stopped dripping or dried. Plus the flies were not interested in it at all, as they were drying in the kitchen. After the third day of “drying” I called it quits and tossed them out.
I’m sure this works for lots of other people, but it didn’t do it for me. Back to the drawing board. Anyone have fun ideas to catch some flies inside the home?
