TheAdvantage Flying Insect Trap.....


Where do you use this product?

As stated previously, there is no exact science for trap placement because weather conditions affect fly activity. Remember....

When temperatures are 80oF degrees or higher, traps must be in shaded areas.


* When temperatures are lower than 80oF degrees, move to direct sunlight.

* Avoid strong winds.

* Place trap at various locations and heights to find the most effective spot.

How does the trap work in a barn setting?

If there are strong odors or lots of other food sources available for the flies to feed on, move the traps to the outside corners of the barn or near grain feeders. Try to catch the flies before they get into the barn.  May need to double the strength of Fly Banquet Fly Attractant if there are strong competing odors.

How do you use the product?


1.   Remove the top piece. Turn the top lid and remove.

2.   Empty dead flies into a bag to discard. Rinse out unit or discard liner. Add the new attractant to a clean or new liner and fill water up to the line on the trap. Stir well.

3. Replace both top and rain lid.

4. Allow 24 hours for activation,  48 hours in cooler weather.

How often do you change the trap?

The answer to this question will depend on the flies. If the unit is full after 7 days, then you will need to change based on the odor. While our products do not have a harsh odor, dead flies do.

How many units do I need?

You should place each trap 30-40 feet apart.
