This Dude’s DIY Fly Trap Works A Little Too Well And It’s Gross

Flies are very bothersome pests, especially in the summer. You’re hot and sweaty, and the last thing you want to do is swat away nasty flies. But what else are you supposed to do? Well, you can buy expensive sprays and traps, or you can make your own fly trap at home. Here’s what you’ll need to do:

Combine 1/4 teaspoon of dry yeast, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, and 1 cup of lukewarm water. Put the mixture in a bottle and set it outside. This thing actually works, and flies will be drawn into the trap before they get the chance to bother you.

But when these traps work too well, things can get pretty disgusting.


I almost feel bad for the little guys, because that looks like a pretty terrible fate. But man, they really do annoy me when I’m at a picnic. Let’s kill them all!
