I am going to show you how to dramatically reduce thousands of disease making flies in a few days, with a simple “Homemade Reusable Fly Trap”. I am going to build it and show you in real time how effective it is. As you will see in the video, it is very easy to catch about 20,000 flies in just a few days to a week at the farm.
The bottom line is; flies have been known for decades to transfer and harbor disease causing pathogens such as parasites, bacteria, feces, urine, vomit and many other pathogens through simple contact of just about anything that the fly lands on.
On the farm we have our fair share of animals. Where you have animals you are going to colonize disease transferring flies, attracted from the urine and feces of the animals or anything that smells like trash or even compost.
I notice when I fertilize my garden with chicken manure or other organic fertilizers, I attract flies from all around due to the smell, and they feast on their favorite food which is feces of any kind.
Even if you live in the city – most likely you also are also inundated with flies around any smelling garbage, refuse of any kind, dead animals, feces of any kind, gardens, restaurants, homeless areas, creeks, dirty and unclean areas from dog or cat feces, gutters, parks, ponds, beaches, backyards etc.
Flies are notorious for being attracted to their favorite food and smells of poop of any kind, and will attract just about all of the species of flies.
Flies love to land on any type of food they can get a free meal from, and can easily transfer bacteria, protozoa, parasites and over 100 categorized diseases just by landing on your food as you will see later on in the description.
Did You Know Flies can Only Eat Liquids?
Some insects, such as flies, have a mouth called a “Proboscis“. This tube soaks up liquid in much the same way that the sponge soaks up water. All of the food that flies eat has to be of liquid form as flies do not eat solid food.
The fly actually vomits on dry materials such as feces to help liquify all types of solid food.
Flies Are Hidden/Occult Disease Creators
Flies can be one of the most hidden/occult disease creators that have been plaguing humanity and animals with disease for thousands of years.
One way you can get sick from a fly is when it crawls on your skin, food, cup or glass, toilet seat etc. and could be vomiting, pooping and transferring pathogens when the fly lands and crawls around.
This type of infection or sickness many people get from flies is unknown to most people, because they do not understand the absolute importance of not having disease transferring flies around the house.
Flies are common in the city and in rural areas, and these creatures spread more disease than could be imagined. Fly traps are a necessity to keep these disease transferring creatures from multiplying.
Flies crawl over and eat all types of manure, dead animals, rotten organic material and then crawl over peoples food, on their skin, counters, open wounds, etc. They can transfer hundreds of different disease forming pathogens in a few seconds after landing on someone or food.
Flies not only eat poop and rotten organic material in the yard, but when they land they can vomit and/or defecate and transfer disease through this vector on others.
Flies used to be the cause of much disease until we figured out how to live in a cleaner and more sanitized environment void of feces contamination.
Sewers, toilets and disinfectants have slowed down many of the diseases that were caused by unclean sanitation disposal.
Clean And Sanitize Your Skin 1 Time Per Week Using The Mineralized Vodka Solution
Since I live on the farm and working indoors and outdoors, I sometimes have flies, bugs, and mosquitos crawl on me.
I like to clean my skin, from head to toe aggressively with the mineralized vodka solution at least 1 time a week, to sanitize and disinfect my body better than any shower can do.

Life Cycle Of The House Fly
It is important to understand the life cycle of the house fly (Musca domestica) in order to support the prevention of disease transmission.
Most of us think of juvenile flies (called maggots) as being more filthy and disease transmitting than the adult fly. Consequently, it is the adult fly that is more likely to spread a variety of diseases by its feeding habits, defecation and flying/movement patterns.
- Adult female flies lay up to 120 eggs at a time, and can reproduce up to 5-6 times in a lifetime.
- Eggs are laid on organic material such as old food, compost piles, garbage and manure.
- Eggs can hatch within 7.5-8 hours emerging into whitish larvae (maggots).
- Maggots eat and burrow into the organic material and defecate on themselves.
- Maggots fully develop quickly in 3-14 days.
- Maggots will form a pupa capsule shell similar to a butterfly cocoon.
- Capsule will allow the maggot to transform into an adult fly in 2-10 days.
- Adult fly emerges from the capsule and is ready to reproduce in 1-2 days.
Temperature is one of the major factors in the fly’s life cycle. Flies can live around 6-42 days depending on the environmental temperatures.
Generally a fly lives for about 2 to 3 weeks. In cooler temperatures they can survive for up to 3+ months to replicate and transfer more disease.
What Diseases Do House Flies Carry?
House flies mainly spread infectious diseases. These are diseases caused by a variety of pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, protozoa and even nematodes (worms like the roundworm or threadworm parasites). There are over 100 pathogens (disease-causing organisms) that are associated just with house flies.
Flies, when they poop, leave little black dots on the walls, windows, countertops, glass wear, clothes, etc. Using 3% H202 or a good non-toxic cleaner/soap, and will dissolve the poop stains and sanitize the area that has been contaminated by their vomit or feces.
Remember, flies can only eat liquids. So, they will vomit on the food to secret enzymes, and then drink back in their fluid with their food.
Most disease causing insects such as mosquitoes, fleas, chiggers or ticks, bite the host directly and directly inject pathogens into the body. Most flies do not bite and only need to crown the host to spread its pathogens it has picked up from eating feces. The house fly plays no specific role in the life cycle of pathogens; they are simply a carrier in most instances.
Flies Eating off a Dinner Plate
“Houseflies can fly for several kilometers from their breeding places, carrying a wide variety of organisms on their hairs, mouthparts, vomitus, and feces. Parasites carried include cysts of protozoa, e.g. Entamoeba histolytica and Giardia lamblia and eggs of helminths; e.g., Ascaris lumbricoides, Trichuris trichiura, Hymenolepis nana, and Enterobius vermicularis. Houseflies do not serve as a secondary host or act as a reservoir of any bacteria of medical or veterinary importance, but they do serve as mechanical vectors to over 100 pathogens, such as those causing typhoid, cholera, salmonellosis, bacillary dysentery, tuberculosis, anthrax, ophthalmia, and pyogenic cocci, making them especially problematic in hospitals and during outbreaks of certain diseases. Disease-causing organisms on the outer surface of the housefly may survive for a few hours, but those in the crop or gut can be viable for several days.“

Diarrheal type illnesses are some of the more common diseases spread by house flies. This includes bacteria such as E.coli, Shigella, Campylobacter, Enterococcus and related bacteria which commonly cause diarrheal illnesses and are found in the stool of people with these illnesses. Some of the diseases spread by house flies include:
- Conjunctivitis (epidemic)
- Diptheria (cutaneous)
- Food poisoning/gastroenteritis
- Typhoid fever
Can Flies Kill Animals?
Flystrike is caused by blowflies which lay their eggs on sheep, dogs, cattle, rabbits and most any furry animal. The eggs once hatched turn into hungry maggots that will eat the flesh of the animal.
Symptoms Of Flystrike Disease
The rapidly growing maggots eat the living flesh of the animals and poison them through their ammonia secretions, causing the skin to become infected and the hair to fall off.
The most common attractants for the flies are the feces, long matted hair or dags and urine stains in the hind quarters and along the back above the shoulders where the sheep’s wool can stay wet for sometime after rain.
Affected animals will not show any signs of being sick until there are enough maggots causing enough itching/damage to make the animal feel uncomfortable.
The first signs are a “fidgety animal nuzzling somewhere on its body”. As the maggot invasion spreads, over a few days, a small area of the skin becomes blackened and the wound also discharging puss.
As the disease progresses the hair starts falling out, animals will stop eating and seek shade and will always be nervous and fidgeting. Once the flystrike invasion has been initiated, more flies are attracted to the site, and the animal can die from ammonia poisoning 3–6 days from the onset of the first sign of flystrike.
I have a whole treatment protocol I use now if my animals get flystrike. The sooner you notice the infection in the animal the quicker you can treat the animal.
Effective Treatment Protocols For Flystrike On Your Animals
First of all, I clean all of the maggots off of the animal and wash the wound with iodine thoroughly and let the iodine soak into the open sore. After the iodine has been on the wound for at least 3-4 minutes I spray the open wound with “CD” spray on the wound to support removing the infection from the maggots feces.
Once the “CD” has been on the wound for at least 3-5 minutes I sprinkle ample amounts of bentonite clay on the wound to further protect and disinfect the area.
I usually will not have to treat the wound again, and the hair will grow back slowly within a few months.
In the future, if one of the sheep gets flystrike, I will do a video course on this subject with live treatment and protocols.
As long as I’ve used the flytraps I have not had any problem with any sheep getting flystrike.
Reducing Disease Transmitting Flies
Reducing flies can be accomplished in many ways. I don’t like to use chemical poisons around my house, so I am going to make a simple fly trap that can be used over and over again – removing 100,000+ flies every year from around your homestead.
“Fly traps can be bought at Home Depot, usually at any home and garden store or online and of course you can simply make your own reusable traps for pennies using a few things laying around the house as I will show you how I make them, later on in the description.“
Since Covid started we have had a supply chain issue, even with simple products like fly traps or even fly paper.
A few quick tips for reducing disease causing fly populations.
- reducing or eliminating breeding sites for flies.
- reducing sources that attract flies from other areas.
- preventing contact between flies and disease-causing agents.
- protecting food, eating utensils and people from making contact with flies.
Disposable And Reusable Store Bought Fly Traps
A variety of Fly Traps can usually be found in garden stores such as Home Depot, and even online via Amazon (see links below).
Fly traps usually cost around $6.00 for disposables and around $6.00-$14.00 for reusable fly trap styles. These types of fly traps are for the outside of the house only, and should be at least 50 ft from your house if you can, because you are going to attract a lot of disease transmitting flies.
Since Covid started in 2019, it’s been hard to find a lot of products including fly traps in the local stores because of supply chain issues.
For the past 6 months, with the lockdown and supply chain issues from CoronaVirus politics, I have not been able to find any disposable fly traps in my local stores as they are all out of stock.
Since I needed them for the homestead, I learned how to make my own version of fly traps under the necessity of needing them.
Below, I will show you how I made various fly traps, basically for free, with a few items lying around the house.
Disposable Store Bought Fly Traps
Here are a few pictures of the store bought disposable models. The traps come with a bait/attractant pouch and all you have to do is add water to the dotted line and you will catch flies for sure. Conveniently these types of disposable traps work remarkably well, when you can find them in stock.

Reusable Store Bought Fly Trap
One of the advantages of using a reusable fly trap is that you can use the internal bait over and over again. Simply empty out half of the dead flies into another fly trap container, and leave the other half back in the original trap and you are now baited to catch more flies.
Flies will eat just about any rotten flesh, old food and carcasses etc. In time, the freshly laid eggs will turn into maggots and will start to feed and thrive on other dead flies in the container. In this case, the flies are cannibalistic on each other for the young maggot worms to feed upon.

I like to use the reusable fly traps at my house since we have so many flies with the animals, and all of the fruit we have that falls on the ground. The disposable fly traps are good for small backyards and work very well.
I don’t like paying up to $6.00-$9.00 each for the disposable type fly traps. The reusable style is very easy to keep reusing over and over again. Once you have either bought or made a reusable trap there is no cost to use them, and better than wasting your good earned money on disposables.
I prefer the reusable fly traps because, once the trap is full of flies I remove all but ¼ of the flies and add a little water, and the trap is ready to catch thousands of more disease transmitting flies in another week, or for the entire breeding season.
You can also load up several other fly traps with the contents of the last full fly trap, instead of throwing the dead flies out.
Flies will eat the dead bodies of the other flies when they die, and usually you will see lots of live maggots in the bag after a few weeks of setting them up. If you are going to dispose of the dead flies, I would suggest making a small hole and dumping the dead diseased flies in the soil to get decomposed or put them in an airtight plastic trash can bag, and discard carefully in the trash.
Store Bought Fly Trap Attractants
If you are using a reusable fly trap or making your own traps, you can either add your own type of stinky bait or use one of the pre-made refills. These refills are only to be used outdoors because they really put out some stink to attract the flies.
I recommend placing the fly trap at least 50+ ft from your house and making sure you are upwind so you wont smell it.
The refills below are less than a few dollars each to recharge the trap back to catch around 20,000+ disease transmitting flies.
Instead of buying more fly attractants, I like to remove 75% of the accumulated dead fly bodies to either bait up another flytrap, or toss the dead flies and juice into a plastic garbage bag.
Make sure you tie a tight knot, so the maggots, fly stench and dead flies cannot leak out.
What also works well is to dig a small hole somewhere in your backyard, add the dead flies and then cover it back up.

Fly paper can be used both inside and outside of the house. The fly simply lands on the sticky material and cannot escape. After the paper is full of flies then just dispose of it and put another one up.
Flypaper traps work excellent in the garage, around garbage cans, anywhere in the house where house flies are patrolling for food.

Part 2 will only be available for Earther Academy members. Some of the information is very sensitive to post or talk about on public social media platforms.
I will show you how I make homemade reusable/non toxic types of fly traps, and also show you a simple protocol using CD for infections, which I have used with excellent results for over 10 years against infections and mild sicknesses I may acquire.
