👍 One Good Thing

We cover the “best and worst” of internet culture, but sometimes the “best” can get lost in the shuffle. We’ll focus on stories that highlight the “best” in a re-occurring section called “One Good Thing.”

‘If y’all want to keep all the flies out of your house this summer’: Man shares how to get rid of flies in your house. It only takes 2 household ingredients

Getting flies out of your house can feel impossible

Leaving out wines and apple cider vinegar and smashing them with a fly swatter can feel like an endless battle. However, one self-proclaimed “DIY Guy” said there’s a way to stop flies from entering your home in the first place.

Recently, TikToker Daddybrownn (@daddybrownn) garnered over 2.9 million views when he shared how a sugar water fly trap placed outside will supposedly eliminate flies before they can infest your home.

Daddybrownn’s video is geared toward teaching viewers how to “make a solution that you can put outside of your door.” 

According to him, this trap “should attract the flies to go there rather than coming in your house at all in the first place.”

So, how does it work?

He shows viewers how to make a simple solution using “two parts water, one part sugar.”
