Woman Comes Up With Maybe the Most Genius Way To Get Rid of Flies

If you’re looking for ways to get rid of those pesky flies around your house, here’s a great idea that only requires a jar, and some food.

I don’t know about you, but at my house, the flies have been insane this year. Nobody can go outside, front or back porch, without getting bombarded by those pesky little critters. My wife and I have tried everything including fly traps, the old water in a zip lock bag and chemicals. Nothing seems to slow these little annoying things down. I hate them. We’re not dirty people and keep a clean house, so I just don’t get why there are so many of them.

A woman posted the following video on Facebook of her own fly-killing contraption. All you need is a jar and some food. You take the jar and poke holes in the top of the lid that are big enough for a fly to get in. At the bottom of the jar, you put a piece of hot dog, or some other food that will attract them, and some maple syrup. Close the lid tight. The flies are too stupid to get out after being caught.


I’m sure that the jar will get pretty nasty after a few days, so changing it out from time to time is probably a good idea. But, I am definitely going to try this idea. And, I’ll let you all know how it goes.

What other good ideas do you have for getting rid of flies?
