  • I heard cidar vinegar in a jar with a lid and poke some holes in it, and they will flock to it.

  • you can try one of those flay catchers. It's a thing you can buy at almost any store. It goes on your ceiling and attracts flies and when they touch it they get stuck

  • This is what I do at work (they grow in the soil or my plants).....

    Take a shallow bowl and put some Kool aid in it. Red always works, but I never tried other flavors. Cover it with saran wrap and then use a pen to poke a bunch of holes in it. Leave it on the counter.

    Dumb little guys fly in to get the kool aid and can't get out. I catch dozens of them this way! LMAO I feel so cruel when I dump their dead little bodies down the sink.
