Please. I live next to a horse paddock, and somehow the appalling things find their way in. They are driving me slowly mad.

How about a Venus fly trap?



Or one of those spinny bois

(These are US products so may not be helpful if youíre not in the US.) Greenway Traps makes excellent insect traps, in my experience: their Window Fly Trap is very effective, but the downside is looking at dead flies on your window.

Or you could try something like the DynaTrap Dot, which has the advantage of the flies not being visible until you have to change the trap.

Outside fly traps are way more effective (they use lure chemicals that arenít a good idea indoors), so if this were me, I would combine both methods. Victor and Rescue are the top names in outdoor fly traps.

This is what I do. I take a clean large plastic cup, fill it halfway with water ( add some sugar if you have it).
Put a few drops of liquid soap in it.
Then cover with a baggie. Cut a small hole in the baggie. Set it outside near your door.
In a few days there will be hundreds of dead flies

There are old timey fly traps that basically work like this, but I think they used vinegar.

L-l-look at you bar-bartender, a-a pa-pathetic creature of meat and bone, un-underestimating my l-l-liver's ability to metab-meTABolize t-toxins. How can you p-poison a perfect, immortal alcohOLIC?

When I made these to get rid of fruit flies I used a combo of sugar and fruit vinegar. Did the trick.
