I purchased a case of these fly traps, assuming they would do their job of trapping flies. I have cluster flies on a glass wall of a southern exposure. I put two of the traps on the sills, and not a single fly has been caught ! It seems that the flies are purposely avoiding the traps ! Wish I hadn't purchased so many traps !
You may be having difficulty catching the flies because of the placement of your traps. The gold sticks should be placed similarly to how fly lights are placed, where they are not competing directly with natural sunlight. We would recommend placing the Gold Sticks in a shady area, such as higher up under soffits, or maybe underneath a sill or similar area where the sunlight does not shine on them directly. If the Gold Sticks are placed in the direct sunlight, it will be much more difficult to catch the flies on the traps.
We also want to make sure that you are using the included attractant on the sticks. Although the attractant is mostly a sex attractant, and it is not breeding season for cluster flies, it will not be detrimental to use the attractant.
