I am going to share 3 recipes that are homemade Fly Bait recipes. all are made from items you normally would have in your cupboards or cabinets at home. None of these are difficult nor do they take long to make. Flies are a bothersome creature and when we need some control indoors, we need something that is not poisonous nor chemical based.
We will also offer some solutions for catching or trapping flies in this article. These will mostly be factory made traps or sources for catching flies.
Using Vinegar and Syrup
These recipes will also be handy while you are sitting around on the porch eating Ice Cream or sipping iced tea!
This combination requires a container that will hold 2 cups of liquid comfortably.
Soap and Sugar
This recipe works great in a container that holds approx 1 cup or larger of liquid. Flat round containers with a decent lip work well for these home remedies.
We will use a mixture of Soap and sugar for this one. The same principal pretty much applies here as with the remedy for the syrup and vinegar. This is a little easier mixed and is ver effective also.
Most folks use these outdoors on porches, decks, chicken houses, barns, etc.
Sugar and Vinegar
In our 1st fly bait, we used the vinegar and syrup or molasses. In this one, we simplify it to just two ingredients of sugar and vinegar. You will need a cup or container that hold more than 1 cup of liquid comfortably. Flat containers work well for this fly bait.
All of our homemade fly baits are safe to use indoors as they are all natural and non toxic! If you need extra fly control be sure to check out the commercial traps and baits in this article.
We also have an article on “Fly Relellent Tips” and “Plants that Repel Mosquitoes” on the blog that you may enjoy reading.
We do not endorse the killing of honey bees as they are becoming less and less in numbers. They are a very important part of our ecosystem and are the greatest pollinators we have. they are such wonderful insects. Please be careful when using commercial traps and bait and be responsible. Always read the warnings and applications fully.
In future articles, we hope to add solutions and homemade recipes for more pest such as fleas, roaches, ants, spiders, etc.
