Do You Use Fly Tape?

While absolutely unsightly, sometimes fly tape is necessary, especially in spots like porches and decks. Do you use it in your home?

No Fly Paper Here... I much prefer the DIY Organic Fly Trap:

too ugly for the house but in other structures (like julieulie's barn) they're a great idea

whatever! i live in an old apartment house in florida and i would TOTALLY have some fly tape up in some hidden places but i dont even know where to find it. i get these miniature drain flies and it just makes me feel like a nasty environmentalist pouring bleach down the drain everyday. this was my maintenance man's suggestion

I would never use them in a HOUSE but I used to hang them in the barn all the time when I owned horses.

eeww- i get that it's a good thing to have around to keep flies from being around but i have BAD BAD memories from being at camp and seeing the stuff all over the place. it just makes me think that stuff will fall from it or that it's gooey - ugh! i'm still getting chills from that tape

I've never used one but I do remember my Dad keeping one in the garage.

*Gag* hell no. I remember how disgusting fly tape was when my parents used to put them in their house. My fly killing technique is a fly swatter, afterwards a cleaner to clean up. Though at one time my husband had smacked a fly, but it ended up being smacked into his father's head.

I don't use them. My fly killing remedy is Windex/401/whatever spray bottle I can get my hands on. I've even used hairspray to kill the little varmints.

I used them once in an apartment with a fly problem. I just hung them high up in inconspicuous areas. It totally worked and didn't bother me

Oh Hell No! These are gross and I'm always afraid they are going to fall on me.

Lol Haze. We dont' get a lot of flies around here for some odd reason. We get more animals. My dad's friend hung a few in his home office though and it creeped me out. It looked as if he hadn't changed them in months!
