FliTrap Usage Instructions
The FliTrap consists of 1 sachet of protein
attractant, a lid, a strap and the fly container.
Unscrew the lid and pour in the contents of the
sachet. Pour warm
Mix thoroughly by rotating the FliTrap in small
circles, then screw the lid back on with the strap
clamped between the lid and the
This is important - Hang the FliTrap in an outdoor position, preferably in the sun where movement of air through the holes in the trap will release the odour of the protein fermenting, along with the pheromones generated by the flies.
This pheromone is a very powerful attractant and safe outdoor fly trap. Once flies are inside, they become confused, begin to dehydrate and fall into the protein/water mix and will soon die. Once the trap is full simply empty out and replace the bait - or simply replace the entire unit.
FliTrap - Frequently Asked Questions
How does FliTrap work?
FliTrap works by using a specially formulated bait to lure flies into it. The flies find the bait totally irresistible and head straight for the device. The trap has 4 funnelled entrances leading into it around the top of the unit just underneath the lid. Flies enter the device through these cleverly designed funnelled entrances and then find it nearly impossible to escape. Before long the flies fall into the water used to mix the bait and die. Unlike other traps on the market the FliTrap is used in an outdoor position which means flies rarely make it indoors, and therefore have less chance of spreading the thousands of diseases they carry.
How long does the bait last?
The amount of time the bait lasts for depends on many factors, we usually find you can expect a bait to last anywhere between 6 to 10 weeks depending on the season and how severe your fly problem is.
Is FliTrap safe around children and pets?
As FliTrap is completely environmentally friendly and contains no harmful chemicals it is perfectly safe for use around humans and animals alike. The bait is made from completely natural sources and although it wouldn't taste very nice, is it completely non-toxic.
Will FliTrap get rid of flies from inside my house/building?
Yes, even though you position the FliTrap outside the house/building you will find the FliTrap becomes interest for the flies instead of them coming inside seeking food. The problem with indoor fly traps is they do nothing to trap the fly outside beforehand. The fly then enters the house or building looking for food. The life span of a fly is around 30 days and inside a house or property they rarely live much more than a few days. By trapping flies outside you will notice a dramatic difference inside and as the trap works your fly problems will be solved. Open windows and doors open are the most common ways of flies entering the house/building. You will find the flies that are inside will pick up the odour and pheromones from outside and find their way to the trap as long as they can escape through an open window or day.
Where is the best place to position the FliTrap?
FliTrap has been specifically designed to be positioned in an outdoor position with exposure to wind and sunlight. The better the airflow the better the trap works as the pheromones carry in the air further for the fly to pick up.
How long does the trap take to work
The amount of time it takes for the trap to start working will vary depending on the conditions in which it is placed. Please note that after mixing the bait with water it can take a few days for the FliTrap to start working 100% effectivly and trapping the flies.
