Buy a six-pack (or even a case) of beer. Open beers and
drink almost all of the beer; be sure to leave about 1/2
inch of beer at the bottom of each bottle. Then, roll up a
small piece of paper (about 3 x 5 inches) into the shape of
a funnel and place it firmly into the beer bottle. Leave
these all over the kitchen for about one week. Soon, all
the flies will be trapped in the beer bottles. Dispose of

Flies love sugar, but they also love yeast.
