FLY TRAP INFORMATION SHEET
HOW THE TRAP SYSTEMS WORK
Simple, effective safe – Patented baits are emptied into traps and water is added. The resulting solution creates an attractant that flies cannot resist. Once trapped, the flies drown in the water-based mixture. Bait ingredients are non-toxic, and non-poisonous.
- Safe for use around animals and humans
- Will catch a broad range of fly species including Houseflies, Blowflies.
- Traps are intended, primarily, for outdoor use – The goal being to draw flies away from the home. Place several traps around outskirts of house, 10-30 feet from house – you will no longer have big fly problems inside the house.
- The system generally attracts flies from a distance of 30-40 feet, depending on wind conditions.
- Baited system will last a long time – Bait will attract a broad range of species, including houseflies and blowflies.
- Add water to the trap if the solution gets below the “fill” line. Water is needed to drown the trapped flies.
- Flies like heat, light, low wind – Place traps in sunny areas. If in an enclosed area – such as a barn – place traps within 6 feet of an electrical light.
- Flies remain dormant until their body temperature reaches approximately 65 degrees F (18 degrees C) – Do not expect much activity below this temperature.
THE DANGERS OF FLIES
No one is quite sure why flies are placed on this earth except for food sources for frogs and birds.
For humans, they are pesky, a nuisance, and more importantly, a carrier of diseases such as Dysentery, Typhus, Cholera, Trachoma, and Anthrax. The adult fly transmits disease by contaminating food with disease organisms it has picked up on its hairy legs or has ingested and then regurgitated.
Few escape the fly; they are in most every location in the world. There are about 119,500 known species of flies and they make up the fourth largest insect order – about 12% of the total insect population.
WHY TRAP FLIES?
If you understand the multiplier effect that can be generated by one female fly, you can see how trapping one female fly can have a dramatic effect on the local population.
With houseflies, as an example, females live about two and a half months and lay between 600 and 1,000eggs during its lifetime. On the average, 12 generations of house- flies are produced in one year. Therefore, that one female could be responsible for many thousands of flies.
Houseflies (black, non-glossy body) and blowflies (metallic blue/green/gold body) are the most common types found around homes – both are categorized as “filth flies”. Houseflies are attracted more toward animal manure and decayed food, while blow flies are attracted more toward decayed meat (road kill) or fish. Both can be found around garbage. Houseflies will be more dominant around farms and animals, while the blowfly will be more dominant around wooded areas, waterways, and more populated human habitation.
Because of the difference in diets, most baits will attract either houseflies or blowflies Uniquely our Bait will be equally effective on both houseflies and blowflies.
