Nothing beats getting outside to enjoy the summer heat, but if one too many flies show up to the occasion, you can count me out — they're a nuisance! As much as we want these insects to buzz off, they don't know how to take the hint, leaving you with bug sprays, fly swatters, bug zappers, or any other bug repellent you've purchased over the years to keep them away (which kills the vibe more than the flies, if you ask me). Nevertheless, TikTok users are claiming to have found a solution that works, and it goes by the name of Starbar QuikStrike Fly Scatter Bait ($31). The bait — which effectively kills flies — can be spread almost anywhere from your lawn to a bowl on your front porch. As long as you keep it away from animals and your own food, you're golden! If the idea of this fly bait has you reeled in, have a look at how TikTokers are using it ahead.
