Don't Eat FliesChemical and Material Sciences
- Desire Kirchofer
"My project is about making four homemade fly traps, each with different baits, and comparing them to a store-bought fly trap to see which one catches the most flies. I chose this project because I wanted to see if a store bought trap containing a sticky substance is more effective at catching flies than the four baits I chose for my homemade traps. The goal was to see if I could use liquid baits commonly found at home to make a more cost effective and efficient trap for flies which may carry diseases into homes and buildings. The results indicated that the maple syrup trap was the most effective overall."
