TikToker Dustin Hadley has shared one fail-safe method to get rid of pesky flies in your house – and all you need is three ingredients
To make the homemade concoction, all you need brown sugar, water and honey a plastic cup and some tape
Holding his notepad to the camera, the recipe reads: ‘1 tsp honey, 1/3 brown sugar and 1 cup water.’
Ready to prepare the mixture he said: ‘If it works, I’m going to save this.’
First, Dustin takes a water bottle and cuts the plastic a quarter of the way down, and places it to the side.
He then puts the three ingredients into the cup and tells his followers to ‘mix it up’.
He then takes the removed top, takes the cap off and places it upside down in the bottle.
Adding some tape to the top of the bottle to hold it in place, he said: ‘Now take it outside and test it outside.’
Dustin shared the successful result to his 3.3 million TikTok followers, and many are jumping to try the hack themselves
Placing it on a table outside, he told his followers to wait a day to see the results.
After returning from work the next day, Dustin was excited to see the outcome of his ‘homemade fly-getter’.
Looking at the homemade trap, he said ‘Oh wow, there’s a ton of them in there.’
Holding it up to the camera, Dustin sniffed the fly grave and told his followers it didn’t smell of anything.
