How to Make Homemade Fly Paper


  1. Mix together and bring to boil on stove, turn stove off when it boils. Dip strips of paper in mixture, hang over newspaper for 30 minutes then hang up in house to catch flies! Works like a charm!

    I've got 4 strips drying right now and will be continuing to make more as this time of year the flies are being ruthless and trying to find a warm nook to hide in.
