This sticky paper can be added to your deck, porch, or around a dog run area in just a few minutes.  The sticky paper attracts and traps flies and then can be thrown away.  There is no clean up involved or unsanitary traps to clean out.

There are several fly repellant sprays available on the market depending on your needs, but as a pet owner, you also need to consider if any repellent is safe for your pet, as well as effective in keeping flies away.  One easy way to keep flies away from dog poop is to mix up your own fly repellent at home.  Using a one to one ratio of water and isopropyl alcohol, with 1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap per cup of mix, you can spray this fly repellent directly on any flies that have found their way into your home or outdoor space. Dog poop is irresistible to flies, but using a pet safe spray is a quick and easy solution to dealing with the pesky intruder.
