Well a person got to hang up the gallon ziplock bags full of water around the top edge of the porch ...then you got to stay on the porch of course. Thought everybody knew that

I tried this once...seemed to work.

Take some two liter bottles and cut the top off where the label starts, invert it into the bottle and seal the top (I just used a buncha staples). Fill with 2" beer (an old one that you forgot where you put it....never use fresh beer, that would just be ...WRONG) and some yeast.
They get attracted to the cO2 and can't get out once in.

I have been using the rescue fly traps and they are amazing. You can't hang them in the sun though. They also smell as they fill up so you'll want to move them off to the edge of the yard.

Well that sounds like a great plan. Had a similar scheme worked out to catch fruit gnats using whiskey as the bait. It drives the warden crazy when them thangs start swarming over the ripe nanners and such thangs. Also required a funnel and a mason jar. Never did catch one but it sure sounded plausible. First I hear of the beer and yeast deal and making your own funnel and holding tank. Now I got to go buy yeast and something that comes in a two liter bottle. I got beer on the way so that is no problemo so to speak. Hope nobody gets infected on this deal. Thanks.

I have lots of problems with flies here also. They know when I am smoking or grilling. My last best effort was to drape a sticky fly strip over the garbage bag that I had just tossed in the can that the city picks up. That catches a bunch of them but I am going to try some of these ideas.
