    Okay

    Worked well for the first few weeks. Then it stopped working completely.

    Expert Response  Expert response:
    These traps do a great job of catching fruit flies, but the key to stopping fly activity is to find the source.  If you do not get rid of the source of the problem, then these traps will only work for a short time.  The traps will only attract for 30 days, then you need to put new ones out.  The key however is to find the source of the problem.  It could be rotting food behind something, or the flies could be something else, like drain flies or fungus gnats.

    Vector 960 Friut Fly trap

    By Ted on 11/07/2012

    Not extremely happy with these, they don't seem to be as thourough as other brands and leave a strong odor from the solution inside the traps.

    Not effective for me

    By Ray on 09/27/2014

    This product did a good job of attracting the fruit flies that I had in my house (New England area), but it didn't actually trap any. Flies would congregate on top of the lid and enjoy a little aromatherapy, but none ever went into the "trap" itself. Can't recommend this item.

    Though they stank up the house, they did not catch/trap a single fly. Seller is great to work with, very efficient..but product did not work

    Disappointed

    By Paula on 09/15/2011

    I purchased these for my son & daughter-in-law. After about a month, I checked with them to see if they were working. They said they worked for about a week & that was it. I had originally wanted a different brand but it was unavailable until 9/30. So decided to give these a try. Sorry I wasted my $$$. I only give this product two stars.

    Not very effective

    By Tami on 10/02/2016

    The flies tended to linger on top of the trap instead of going into it. I had better success with a glass of vinegar with plastic wrap on top.

    I’m at war with these flies.

    By Mags on 07/28/2019

    Not sure yet what kind of flies these are. They were in our drains, so I thought they were drain flies. We found a source in our sink catch and replaced that and cleaned all of our drain catches. Lots are gone. We also used the invade drain stuff in every drain. Now, as I’m sitting I. The living room, a black tiny fly is torturing me. It will land on my food, it will land on my hands and body, it will bite. Our pest control company gave us these. I’ve had one by our kitchen drain and one under the light where I’m sitting in the living room. It hasn’t caught these flies at all. So now, I’ve taken the kids off and added my own little bowl with cider vinegar and dish soap. Game on. Let’s see if this round will kill any of these beasts? Next plan is to put out soapy water, I guess? What else can I do?
