The Flies-be-Gone Fly Trap is one of the most effective non-toxic fly traps available. Each trap is effective for up to four to six weeks and catches thousands of flies over an area of 50 to 100 yards. Flies-be-Gone traps are all-natural, maintenance-free and completely disposable. Nothing to clean up. For home or commercial use. A farmer’s true friend for use in the poultry industry, on dairy farms, stables, livestock ranches, feed lots and kennels.
The Flies-be-Gone Fly Trap now has a new, improved design for even better fly control. The lid of the trap has changed from red to black. Studies show that flies are better attracted to dark colors rather than light colors. It has been found that light colors can actually act as a repellent. The pouch is now a multi-layer, reinforced laminate bag with a reinforced wide outer seam. The bag has also been designed with a honeycomb print on the outside to help hide the presence of the dead flies inside.

Flies-be-gone Fly Traps are easy to use:
Hang trap at least 30 feet away from the area you want to protect (such as your home) in direct sunlight and about 5 feet off the ground. Add the bait packet provided.
Add 1 quart of water.
Add a pinch of soil to the mixture.
Place the lid on the trap and watch the flies leave your protected area and come to the trap. New flies go to the trap instead of to your house.
How does it work?
Flies-be-gone traps appeal strongly to a flies' natural instincts. It provides them with food and a warm place to lay eggs. Once inside the trap, they cannot escape. Flies-be-gone bait is especially appealing to female flies. Up to 85% of flies caught are female, which helps decrease the next generation of flies.
Regular use results in a noticeable decrease in the overall fly population of an area.
This is a product that really works. We had a real bad fly problem, they would not leave you alone, tried many items that did not work. FLIES BE GONE really works!!! Every day hundreds show up in the trap. EXCELLENT PRODUCT
The trap works great, did just as advertised. The only problems I had with it was it's unsightly after you have it up for two weeks. It's gross to see all those dead flies but mostly it started to smell terrible. We had it about 40 feet from our pavilion. But it did work so if you had it some place out of the way it would be great.
This thing catches flies ... period. However, in the end it really didn't change the number of flies we found in the house. There was a very slight decrease, we think, but can't necessarily contribute that to the traps. Note, we are keeping them because they do catch flies very well. But it didn't quite solve our flies in house problem.
I ordered this a couple of weeks ago for my horse stables. Anyone who has horses KNOWS how bad flies are arouind a stable. This thing works, folks! It's amazing! I will be ordering more! If you haven't tried this, you need to!
Placed order for bifen and since we had what seemed to be millions of flies in the yard, ordered flies-be-gone. It has been up for 5 days and it is full to the top! There definitely are females in there as there are now zillions of maggots, too bad for them! Good for me! The flies are now minimal to us humans. Just ordered 2 more to keep on catching them. Love Flies-Be-gone!
What is the best way to dispose of the fly trap without nasty liquid & flies spilling?
I like the way liquid traps get the flies but have always been at a loss as to how best to dispose of them where we won't have "stinky juice" all over everything in trash can etc. Putting in plastic bags helps a little but they often leak as well.There was a trap, which I can't find any longer, that had a top that would screw/snap back down to seal the bag and its contents. Advice would be appreciated !
The manufacturer says to just place the trap in a plastic bag and dispose of it in the trash can. We agree with you that depending on the bag you place it in, leaking is a possibility. Most of us at the office use this product at our own homes. We place the trap in a gallon size Ziploc bag and then place that in a grocery plastic bag and dispose of the trap in the trash.
Maggots are forming in the Flies-Be-Gone fly trap and the flies do not seem to be drowning, is the trap working
and the flies aren't sinking, so new flies entering don't drown. Any tips to handle these 2 situations??
While having maggots form in the Flies-Be-Gone trap is ugly to look at, it is a good thing. It means you have captured female flies that were ready to lay eggs, eggs that if laid outisde the bag would produce more flies that could potentially contaminate your food, infest your home or drive you crazy by buzzing by your face over and over. And you needn't worry about whether or not the flies are drowning, once they are in the trap they cannot get out and will eventually die.
What is the purpose of putting a "drop" of topsoil in the fly trap when it is set up?
I don't have real topsoil, only a reddish clay dirt, I just set up my first bag, temps here now in the 80's, but I did not put any dirt into the bag as suggested, please advise, thanks
The flies that you are trying to get to enter this trap are attracted to dirty water as this is where they would typically lay eggs and reproduce. Adding dirt to the solution in the Flies Be Gone Fly Trap will help make the trap more attractive to the flies. We do not recommend skipping this step.
We've used a different but similarly designed, and effective, fly trap in the past, but after using it for about a week there was a horrible smell all around the area where we hung the trap. At first we thought we had a dead animal under our deck, but then realized it was coming from the fly trap. Will this one do the same? They're too expensive to throw away very often. Note: Our temps rarely go above 80-85 degs.
Yes, there is often a foul odor with most flie traps and this is because flies are attracted to filth. The Flies Be Gone Fly Trap can be used for at least 3 months. Water and a pinch of dirt can be added to the trap to keep in usable for a longer period than 3 months. The Flies Be Gone Fly Trap should be placed at least 30-50 feet away from the area that you are wanted to keep flies away from so that the odor is not noticable.
