The Cheapest And Most Effective Fly Trap: All You Need Are These Three Items! (PHOTOS)

It’s that time of the year again. Flies are all over the place and no matter how hard you try to keep them from coming inside, they always find a way to creep in. And then while you’re making a sandwich for lunch, you turn your back for one minute and a damn fly manages to land right on your piece of cheese.

And if you’re anything like me, you are not a fan of those unattractive sticky sheets that hang down from your porch. Not only are they miserable to look at, but I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve slammed my face against them.

This summer is going to be different though, thanks to Donkey1521 on Imgur. The user shared a photo of a “Cheap Fly-Catcher” on the site, and then they were nice enough to provide detailed instructions on how to make one for yourself.

It’s surprisingly simple. You just need a banana, some sugar, and a water bottle. You’ll also need something to cut the bottle with.

That’s your first step. Cut the bottle.


And then you add in just enough sugar to cover the bottom.


Cut up some pieces of a banana. Maybe eat a few pieces as well. You make the rules here.


Mash them inside the water bottle.


Add in enough water to cover the sugar/banana mix and then stir it around.


Remove the cap and put the top portion of the bottle in upside down.


Wait for the disgusting results…
