    My mom and I feed feral cats, they'll come in the garage and eat.   The flies were just NUTS. We didn't want to put the bait down in the garage so we used this and set it up on a shelf,  The next day, dead flies everywhere.  They'd eaten almost all the bait. LOVE IT!

    Versatile bait station

    I'm a professional & would recommend using this with granular fly baits, no matter where you're applying the bait. Used these around the doors of my home, installed in discreet areas, & have gotten great results. I've also used these in some of my accounts, horse barns, dairies, etc with positive results. Sightly, unlike most fly traps, & when ordered in bulk inexpensive. Child & animal proof when installed correctly.

    excellent

    I am very satisfied with this fly bait station. It is a very good price. It comes with a key so you can keep it locked. And it has "don't touch" engraved in it so it makes it responsible. At first I didn't understand how to hang it up but when I called customer service they were very helpful. I understood right away how to put it together.

    I'd Give 0 Stars If I Could....

    I've been in the Pest Control business for over 22 years, and I've never had such a miserable failure from a product like I did these stations. I tried three different baits and mounted these in the dumpster areas of about a dozen restaurants and NEVER found on dead fly in any of them. SAVE YOUR MONEY!!

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Do flies die after entering the FBS-1 station, or do they leave and die?

Do the flies normally fly out of the FBS-1 Fly Bait Station to die after eating the bait or do they die on top of the bait making it necessary to clean them out to make room for more flies? If it is the latter, how hard is it to clean out the flies without disturbing the bait?
A
Whether the flies leave the station to die or die inside all depends on what kind of bait you place inside it.  We recommend the Maxforce Granular Fly Bait which will kill a fly within 60 seconds of landing on it.  This means that some flies will die in the station on the bait and some will fly out before they die.  If you do have a lot of fly activity, then you would probably want to clean them out of the station every few days until activity was under control.  However it is very easy to clean the flies out if you have to do this.  The flies are much larger than the bait and will be sitting on top of it.  You can take a stick or a plastic knife and just push them out of the station onto the ground or in the trash.

Q
Does the FBS-1 fly bait smell? What kind of odor is present?
A
The FBS-1 Fly Bait Stations do not come with a bait already in them.  You must purchase that separately. They are merely a secure station for holding any type of fly bait.  We do recommend using Maxforce granular fly bait which does not have a strong odor that you would notice.

Q
Is this product attractive to birds, and are they able to access the bate in the stations?
A
Unless you left the station open the birds would not be able to acces the bait inside. You did not specify which bait you are intending to use inside the station for us to accurately answer if a bird would be attracted to it or not. Some baits work more by sexual pheromone so it will vary in attractiveness to other insects or animals.

Q
Will the FBS-1 Fly Bait Stations work for outdoor lessor house flies?
A
Yes, the Maxforce Fly Bait is labeled for lessor house flies and should be applied in the FBS-1 Fly Bait Stations.
