Flies are one of the biggest annoyances, whether you’re indoors or out. Blow flies, house flies, horse flies, and other flies can be very frustrating to deal with, and flytraps can be a huge part of your pest management arsenal. Knowing what kinds of fly traps are available can help you to monitor, trap, and kill flies in and around your home.
Trapping insects is often used for both monitoring insect activity and minimizing pest populations, and can be used on a wide variety of flying and crawling insects. When trapping flies, it is important to try to take other measures to reduce fly populations first if you have an extreme fly problem, as the traps cannot handle huge populations. This involves cleaning up breeding sites (like garbage piles, manure, etc) and taking exclusion measures like mending screens and door seals. This will give the traps a much better chance of catching all remaining flies.
Types of Fly traps
There are many different types of flytraps available, each working in a different way to capture flies. We sell traps that either trap flies with a sticky surface (rendering them unable to fly away) or traps that lure flies into a one-way container, trapping them inside. Often you can find fly traps that don’t use pesticides and rely on natural substances.
Traps with lures: Lures can be sugar or protein-based, or use pheromones, to attract flies to the container. They can involve a liquid, like the Flies Be Gone trap, or a simple container with a small amount of the attractant, like the Advantage trap. There are several styles of this type of trap and it works well for houseflies and blowflies, as well as keeping flies away from pets and children.
Sticky fly traps: Sticky traps come in all shapes and sizes. From fly tape, fly strips, sticks or even old-fashioned fly paper, these kinds of traps can combine attractants with sticky surfaces to lure and trap flies to the trap. The hanging traps that dangle from doorways, etc., are very good for catching houseflies, which tend to land on vertical surfaces most often. These are great as indoor fly traps.
