All Floridians know of the pesky yellow fly! This time of the year is when they are out and about and ready to bite. Follow these easy steps in order to control the population around your home:
- Paint a beach ball or milk jug a dark blue or black color. Use Krylon Fusion for plastic paint, and let paint dry.
- Cover the whole surface of the ball or jug with Tree Tanglefoot.
- Hang coated ball or jug from a tree branch or eve in an open, breezy area.
Yellow flies are ambush predators, and are attracted to movement and dark colors. For best results, hang the trap where it will swing gently in the breeze.
