DIY: Organic Fly Trap

If you don't feel like spending your endless Summer chasing flies around with a swatter, a fly trap may be more like it. I recently came across a DIY for making an organic fly trap, and since this season goes hand-in-hand with the little pests, I decided to summarize it for you. You should have most, if not all, of the supplies already in your home.

Supplies:

  • A two-liter soda bottle (used)
  • Sharp knife
  • A wire hanger
  • Match, lighter, or stove gas flame
  • Electric tape
  • Bait (like a small piece of meat or dog poo mixed with water!)
  1. Remove the bottle cap.
  2. Cut through the bottle a third of the way down.
  3. Place the bait in the base of the bottle (the bottom two-thirds).
  4. Invert the top third of the bottle, and slide it into the base.
  5. Tape the two pieces of the bottle together.
  6. Bend some wire into a U shape (for hanging), with ends angled inwards.
  7. Heat up the ends of the wire, and bore two holes into either side of the bottle by pressing with the hot wire.
  8. Make sure the wire is securely hooked into the bottle.
  9. Now, hang your fly trap and relish in fly-less, chemical-free bliss!
