To catch a fly..

#1wilowns1Posted 7/11/2013 8:25:41 PM
Do I have to use a spoiled turnip as I would for an ant? I've had a boot, can, and tire sitting outside my house for two full days and I've yet to see a fly buzzing around yet. I just want to catch it and a scorpion.. then I can relax my encyclopedia until fall ^.^

Then fly will be sitting on the bait not flying around it. Also I don't think trash works. Just rotten food or candy.

I used a rotten turnip, which I dropped beside my house. I went in and out my front door until I saw ants on the ground, then did the same thing until I saw a fly buzzing around.

It could be worse. I could be a Prinny.

You can also get it from rotten fruits you get from a tree's last yield.

I literally saw a fly (and ants) the first time I went out of my door after leaving a spoiled turnip out.

I neglected to mention this in the first post.. I have not caught an ant yet either. I actually just learned about them both on Monday, having already sold my turnips -.- So should I just give up on the trash and just wait until Sunday to catch the fly and the ant?

If memory serves, trash attracts flies

rotten food attracts ants

rotten turnips attract both.

But yeah, the fly is tricky because you'd think it'd be buzzing around, but it's usually just sitting on it.

Alright.. I'll keep my eye out for them more closely then, I assumed they'd be flying around it. Do they appear all hours of the day?
