What about making your own jugs? Would those trap innocent insects too?

I don't think so. The kits they sell to convert milk jugs into traps are also scent based - they only lure in flies. Those work pretty well too, I just prefer the bags because disposal is a bit easier. Dumping out the milk jug traps is.... ... unpleasant.

Understandable, haha. I'll wait for the DE to take effect and see if it's still a problem, because two of my neighbours have 2 dogs each and our backyards are literally divided by 1 fence (they're both behind my house, not to the sides), and I'm not sure if they even know about DE, let alone use it. 5 dogs living so close together is bound to cause a fly invasion!
