What at home substances make the best fly trap. I chose this project because having dogs can influence how many flies are in our backyard and thought it would be interesting to see what things I can use from my pantry to trap the flies. The results of the project showed that molasses is a good option to use for an at home fly trap. However, the weather was unsuually cold during the experiment which effected the experiment due to the lack of flies in the area. This was important because it can be more cost effective to make your own traps versus buying the sore bought fly traps.
