Trash Bag of Doom

Trash bag with a bit of flypaper lining

Well, trash bags already attract flies anyways. May as well have them lined with flypaper on the inside. Just a little bit near the top, facing inwards to reduce the likelihood of trash sticking to it. Doing this in a cheap way that actually works is not necessarily so easy and obviously just keeping trash covered perfectly is better.

       This is a brilliant idea.   

       Sometimes I set up a "decoy" bit o' food on a plate, to trick the little bastards, (flies), so that I can enjoy my sandwich while sitting out of doors.   

       This would be great. I could do double duty with it. Decoy and trash at once. +!

       This needs to be *unscented* flypaper; otherwise the risk is you may attract flies to your garbage when they wouldn't have discovered it on their own.

       // stop it sticking to the other side of the bag, //   

       Put it inside a cardboard tube, like the core out of bogroll ?

       Good in theory, but I agree with UB, tough to implement. The key is when to peel off the cover.
