A bit of Fly psychology. When a fly takes flight it always takes off up and toward the sun.

Figure 1

Materials Needed: One 5 gallon bucket Screen, on old screen off a door will do Glue, something the consistency of caulking Bailing wire or twine 3 lb coffee can Bait Equipment: Knife to cut the bucket Scissors

Figure 2

Using your knife or box cutter, cut windows out of the side of your bucket all the way around. Flies will always move toward the sunlight so you want a nice open view.

Figure 3

Next, cut a hole in the bottom of the bucket.

Figure 4

Make a cone out of your screening. Leave a small opening in the top about the size of your little finger. This is where the files will enter the trap…BUT..they will NOT try to leave the same way. Place the cone in the hole in the bottom of the bucket and trim excess leaving enough screen so that you can clip and fold it back and glue it in place on the bottom of the bucket.

Figure 5

Now that you have your cone in place cut a strip of screen that will wrap around the inside of the bucket. Glue this in place. Cut a square or circle to use as a lid. Place this on with bailing twine or wire. You will want to be able to take the lid off and empty your bucket so that you can use it again next year.
