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.

Flies Be Gone Fly Trap
By Joellen in Norton, OH on 09/21/2010
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.

Tough call. Works great ... but
By Todd in Cincinnati, OH on 08/01/2010
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.

Flies Be Gone!
By Sue in Miami, FL on 07/19/2010
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!

These are the BEST fly traps. I use them all year round.
Flies Be Gone Trap
By Paul in Isle MN on 09/01/2016
Found it catches common house flies. The main reason for my interest was if it would catch biting flies often called horse or deer flies which I found it did not work for me. Do not find the smell an issue like some report.
Flies be gone Fly Trap
By Vince in Bakersfield, Ca on 08/23/2016
This product worked great. In fact, it attracted and trapped flies from the houses on both sides and behind me. Expect your backyard to smell like a diary though. I gave it four stars because it worked. Your better off with a fly swatter.
Love this product

works too well ?
By Ken in Paragould, Ar on 08/21/2016
This year we have an infestation of black flies. I bought this thinking it couldn't hurt. I setup per the instructions about 40' from our back door in direct sunlight. I was ecstatic when I had 6 flies the first day. The 2nd day dead flies were 1/2 thick in the bottom. 3rd day 2 inches thick. 4th day trap was almost full and stinking so badly that I had to change it out with another one. I put old trap inside 3 trash bags and our once a week trash barrel . By the time our trash ran on the 6th day since first setup our neighbors were asking about the smell. 2nd trap has been much better , I guess it got most of the flies , but it also seems to be less effective. 1 week and there are probably 40-50 flies in it and we again have a fly problem in our house. Not sure why but one big difference is the first week was very hot and sunny , 2nd week was rainy and cooler. Be prepared for the horrible smell of rotting flies, but it works !

QWhat 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 !
AThe 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.
QMaggots 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??
AWhile 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.
QWhich flies does the Flies Be Gone trap catch?
Im looking for a trap for horse flies and other biting flies around my horses, the flies in the photo seem pretty small.
AThe Flies Be Gone fly trap is labeled for use on dairy farms and stables and will catch all types of flies that hang out in these areas, including horse flies.

QWhat 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
AThe 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.

QWill Flies Be Gone Fly Trap work for Biting Flies at the Beach?
I live on the Beach in the PanHandle of Florida and I get biting flies will this catch them or something else better?
AThe Flies-Be-Gone Fly Trap will work on any flies that are attracted to smell. The manufacturer states that the results have been mixed for biting flies on the beach. Sometimes they work great, and other times not so great. The manufacturer did say that if you are not satisfied with the results, they will refund your purchase personally if you would like to try them.

QHow often do these traps need to be replaced?
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.
AYes, 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.

QWhat time of year should I put out the Flies Be Gone Fly Trap?
I have a home in the mountains in the northeast and have problems with cluster flies. The worst time is in the fall when then come in the house. We are still getting nights below freezing should i wait to put out the traps.
A Flies Be Gone Fly Trap†works best when used and applied when temperatures†are above 65 degrees.

QI have an outdoor cat enclosure. What is the best cat-safe fly control?
Even with cleaning the yard where the cats use the bathroom, there are a tremendous amount of flies. I need something safe to use around my cats. Thank you.
A If you are concerned about the cats coming into contact with baits or residual sprays, then you can use fly traps such as the Flies Be Gone Fly Trap. This uses a lure to attract flies and capture them, and then you simply dispose of the trap after 4-6 weeks or when full. You will want to hang the trap 15-30 feet away from where people or pets spend the most time, since the trap will attract flies. You could also use Maxforce Granular Fly Bait in tamper resistant FBS-1 Fly Bait Stations. These stations protect the bait from pets or other non-target animals while still allowing the flies to access the bait.

QHow about Gnats?
I have been having a ton of trouble with gnats flying around my head when I walk outside. This may sound harsh - but, I want them dead. Will this product work?
AWhile the Flies be Gone Fly Trap may attract some gnats through the smell, it is geared mostly to flies specifically. A better option would be to spray down the foliage areas around your home -trees, bushes, flowers etc- with a residual insecticide like Bifen IT. Bifen is mixed at the rate of 1oz per gallon of water and will hold up to the outdoor elements roughly 30 days or so. Its safe to use on all plants other than edibles, and is also safe for sprays indoors for general pests around baseboards. It will do a great job of controlling gnats, mosquitoes, ants, spiders millipedes and a multitude of other insects on the property without leaving behind any visible residue, stain or odor.

QDoes the product kill house flies and flies attracted to dog poop?
I have a dog run next to the house. When I clean the run, I put the dog poop in a covered trash bin until I take the bag out on trash day. Needless to say, it attracts a lot of flies. The fly trap I used to use doesn't seem to catch the flies anymore. Is the Flies Be Gone Fly Trap too much? I see most people talking about horses. Thank you.
AThe Flies Be Gone Trap will help draw the flies out of the area. Each trap is effective for up to four to six weeks and catches thousands of flies over an area of 50 to 100 yards. We would recommend using the EndZone Sticker at the trash can area. Each sticker has a coating that is attractive to listed filth flies. After the flies ingest the coating, they die within 1 minute. Flies will usually die underneath the sticker and dead flies do not stick to EndZone Insecticide Sticker. Provides up to 7 month of residual action indoors and up to 4 months of residual action outdoors ( when not contaminated by dirt, dust, filth, water, & other pesticides)

Qdo you have a product that will keep may flies away from our house
they breed in the lake behind our house and swarm onto the house where they sit or annoy anyone who comes near
AFlys Be Gone Trap is a great product to use to deter flyies from your home. Each trap is effective for up to four to six weeks and catches thousands of flies over an area of 50 to 100 yards. You want to place the trap approx 30ft away from the area you are experiencing flies. The bait will draw them away for 4-6 weeks.

QWould Flies Be Gone Fly Trap help us to eliminate flies inside the house
We have seen many flies inside the house, mainly between the screens and the windows. We still have no idea where they are coming from.
AFlies Be Gone Fly Trap would work graet placed outside your home to lure them away from your home. Do you have potted plants indoors? The easiest control for them is to allow the soil to dry out completely between the times you are watering them, which may actually be the best thing for the plants anyhow. The second option would be to cover the soil in these pots with some material that prevents the flies from getting to or from the soil, such as a thick layer of spagnum moss or some screening. The third option would be to use an insecticide such Talstar P. Talstar P is a concentrated liquid insecticide that is diluted with water and then poured onto the soil and sprayed onto the plant itself. We recommend starting with letting the soil dry out between watering as this offers the fastest control in most cases.

QThe water and bait is separating in the Flies Be Gone Trap, is this normal?
Although constantly mixing it while it's hung it, by squeezing and moving the bottom of the bag, the water & bait keep separating. Is this normal? It's been up 2 days, and both days I have gone out and tried to mix it back up. It's cold here in PA now, but the water is not freezing.
AYes, the water and bait can separate. However, this separation does not make the Flies Be Gone Fly Trap any less effective.

QI live on a farm next door to some cattle. Would Flies Be Gone Fly Traps help control flies?
I have a bug zapper and have tried attractants and they drown but I want to convince them to keep away from my house and patio. Is there such a product?
AUnless your neighbor tries to control as well, this will be a never-ending fly battle. The good news is that you can use traps to keep the flies away from where you are. You could place Flies Be gone Traps around the area you frequent to attract the flies away from you and your family.
