Experimenting: Flies

I hung out the fly traps last weekend... I'm trying something different this year, by using just soapy water instead of the provided attractant.

The attractant works very well.  It's incredibly stinky and our traps filled quickly last year.  I think it was calling flies over from the dairy down the road.

We haven't had too many flies yet, so I just want to trap the ones we do have and let the dairy keep theirs.  ;-)

Also since LGDs are much larger than they were last year, I suspect it's better not to use the poison.

I've been wondering about using something else in those traps too. They work as is, but the stink :(
