My husband, son and I just moved into a very old house on a farm. We get a ton of flies in the house, every time we open the front door, they all swarm in. The people who used to live here left up those ugly hanging fly paper traps, but I hate them! Nothing beats washing the dishes while staring at a strip of yellow tacky paper with dead or dying flies stuck all over it (can you feel my sarcasm?).

Does anyone have any ingenious ideas on how to trap these flies with something that looks nice? Or at least doesn't look like a fly trap? Thanks!

If you have a tree near your door, hang a milk jug with a tiny bit of ground beef in it. The flies will 'gravitate' towards the milk jug and hang out in it. when it is full to your satisfaction, put on the lid and toss in the garbage. You can paint the jug first to blend in with the tree if you like, but it will fill up quite quickly. d Smiley
