DIY Heavy Duty Fly Trap For The Homestead

These pests can carry and spread diseases that can do serious damage to your animals. Unfortunately, controlling large numbers of flies can be much more difficult than you might think. Most traditional ways of trapping flies work well for those confined inside the home. When it comes to controlling them outside, you need to bring out the big guns, an industrial strength fly trap designed to catch large numbers of flies.

Also while most large traps allow the flies to still lay their eggs, so you have to deal with the maggots, this one dries out the flies so you just empty the dry carcasses as needed.

This Do It Yourself project was designed to help you build your own industrial strength fly trap. The construction plan that is part of the project can be accomplished using either new or reclaimed wood that you have lying around. All of the materials can easily be obtained from a local supply store along with the wood.
