Sweet Smell Fly Trap

This is a fly trap that is sweet smelling that can be used on the ISS for catching flies that escape from the experiments astronauts do that use flies. This is different from other fly traps because it does not stink because it uses a piece of fruit to attract flies instead of the traditional rotten-smelling organic matter usually used in fly traps. Flies crawl into the trap from the top and are funneled inside. Once inside, they cannot get out of the small interior hole, but will be trapped on the inside of the top. It has hooks on the top so it can easily be hung.
