A portable fly trap – ha! got’m!

I know, I know … small things appeal to small minds! 🙂 The flies have actually been a lot less for a few months, and the fly traps became very ineffective. But recently the flies have been congregating on the southern (southern hemisphere, so no sun) side of the house in very large numbers. Mostly big blow flies, they just seem to be hiding from the heat. So, while it’s too hot to have the windows open, I’ve put this trap made with little 5 litre buckets there, and loaded it with raw prawn heads and shells. In just half a day it caught quite a few flies. So pleasing to be able to make a difference.
