one expensive fly trap!

At first glance, this looks like a clever DIY idea.  But then I read the instructions, which call for using maple syrup.  Quite a bit of maple syrup, which sells for $10/ pint in my area.  And shrimp as a (rotting) protein source. Substituting cheap corn syrup and meat scraps would make it much more economical.
