Safety Products

Please be sure to read the product label of any insecticide you choose to use to get information on the personal protective safety gear you will need. In most situations, it is recommended that you wear long pants, a long sleeved shirt, closed toe shoes with socks, chemical resistant gloves, and goggles. In areas where ventilation is poor, a manufacturer may recommend you wear a mask or a respirator. We have put together two different safety kits that will make selecting the correct safety gear easier for you.

Outdoor Fly Trap

By DoMyOwn staff

Fly Traps are traditionally the most popular and effective method of fly control. With 3 unique kinds of fly traps, there is one for all your fly control needs! For indoor and outdoor residential control, see our Pheromone Fly Traps and Natural Non-Toxic Fly Traps. For public business settings and venues, an Ultraviolet Fly Trap combines professional control with discreteness and low-profile design.

1) Pheromone Traps (sticky fly traps)

A Pheromone Trap is one kind of sticky outdoor fly trap that uses powerful sexual attractants, or "pheromones", to lure most small flies and filth flies to a sticky glue pad where they are unable to escape once captured. Pheromone Fly Traps may be used in any situation where flies are a problem and toxic chemical control is not desired. Small Pheromone glue traps like the Gold Stick Fly Trap are ideal for homes, garages, offices, etc., where minimum control is needed. Larger models such as the Ultraviolet Pheromone Trap are appropriate where a greater level of control is desired, such as restaurants, store fronts, and other business applications.

  • Gold Stick Fly Traps - Catchmaster Gold Sticks are long tubes with a sticky glue and fly pheromone attractant for capturing and killing house flies and other nuisance flies. Place on window sills or hang vertically in areas of fly activity.
  • Ultraviolet Pheromone (Glue) Traps - UV Pheromone Traps attract flies using ultraviolet rays, where the fly gets stuck on a removable glue strip. Glue strips utilize pheromones to further attract nuisance flies that are not as readily attracted to the ultraviolet light. This model is appropriate for most public and food settings.

    Benefits of Ultraviolet Pheromone Fly Traps:
    • Ultraviolet rays are not harmful to people or pets
    • No unpleasant odors.
    • Powerful ultraviolet light provides for optimum coverage.
    • UV rays attract a wide range of flying insects, not just flies.
    • Many ultraviolet fly traps are designed to look like ordinary light fixtures, making them perfect for discreet control in public venues

3) Ultraviolet Fly Traps

An Ultraviolet Fly Trap is an insect trap that uses powerful ultraviolet rays to attract flies and other flying insect pests without the use of chemicals harmful, toxic chemicals. Ideal for use in settings and situations where using traditional fly sprays or chemicals would not be appropriate, or where discreet, low profile control is desired-such as kitchens, restaurants, or store fronts.
