Golden Malrin (sometimes called Golden Marlin) Fly Bait is a fly bait formula containing Muscamone TM Fly Attractant which encourages both male and female flies to remain in the treated area, thus feeding on the bait. It may be used daily or as needed to provide initial knockdown and reduction of fly populations. Golden Malrin can be scattered around dumpsters or used near commercial or restaurant facilities. America's #1 selling fly bait!
Tips: 3 year shelf life - This product used to be yellow, but the EPA required the company to change the color to a bluish green since yellow looked to much like a corn or grain and they did not want children confusing it with corn. Same product, just different color. It is best to broadcast this bait.

Golden Malrin Fly Bait is awesome. I buy it every year and use it for both ants and flies. Except now no one sells it in Muskogee. Thanks, Cynthia

Works well - well worth the cost
July 2, 2013
My daughter has pet rabbits. The manure is an outstanding fertilizer for my garden, but unfortunately, its also a MAJOR fly attractant. The flies land on the manure, lay eggs on it, the eggs hatch into maggots and then there's more flies.... Doesn't matter how often you clean, rabbits poop 24/7 so its impossible to avoid the flies. I've used various bags, traps, sticky strips, etc. but never found any solution I was really pleased with. The sticky strips were useless because the smell of the manure is FAR stronger than the attractant on the strips; the few on the strips ran into them *accidentally*. The fly trap bags work well but they smell horrific. My neighbors would complain every time the wind blew the scent of the active bags in their direction. I tried various brands of poison bates, but none seemed to be more desirable than the bunny poop UNTIL I found Golden Malrin. I sprinkle a small amount of granules around and under the rabbit cages daily and the flies dive on it immediately. Within 15-20 seconds you see the flies twitch, then die - its that fast. It's the first product that is desirable enough to draw the flies away from the bunny poop and onto the bait. Now that I've been using it regularly, I no longer have a fly 'problem' because I've broken the cycle; there are no more eggs hatching because no adults lived long enough to lay eggs (YAH!). I use it now just for maintenance; to kill any new flies to the area - get them quick before they can breed and start a colony again. It works excellent.

Golden Malrin Fly Bait
By Sharon in Julian, WV on August 22, 2010
Overall I am pleased with Golden Malrin. There are noticeably fewer flies in and around my barn. It doesn't get rid of all flies, and I don't think anyone who has horses can expect it too, but I do think it's worth the purchase.

Works very well
By Tms in MI on November 25, 2010
We have had it out for a couple weeks and are very pleased with the results.
My experince with product
By Norman in Burlingon, NJ on August 7, 2015
It just does not seem to draw many flies - put in the middle of a bunch of flies and they have no interest
not as good as golden of yesterday
By Bill in CA on July 5, 2015
It don't attract as well as it use to. You have to place it on something that attracts flys for it don't do it on its own.
By Auntydob in Cedar City on June 30, 2015
I used Malrin Fly bait years ago on a piece of watermelon, had about 2 inches of flys the next morning lying dead in the rind.... this time it didn't do anywhere near that, and I still have flies. Maybe the formula has changed, I was disappointed with the results. Yes it killed some, but not near enough, so I sprinkled it around the area where they were congregating, not the greatest result.

10 Year fly problem solved
By Allen in Statesboro, Ga. on June 10, 2015
I own a restaurant. Our back alley area has always had thousands of flies in the warm weather. Constantly spending my employees time "killing flies" in my store. After sprinkling this product on the ground, flies were basically eliminated. They are no longer an issue. I don't understand any negative reviews, this stuff WORKS!!

Experience using Golden Malrin Fly Bait
By Cosma in jamaica west indies on March 3, 2015
Golden Malrin worked as expected. Still working with it but so far it is fine. However, It seem that after a day or two you need to discard the bait and add a fresh supply.

Does not work!
By Tom in Ogden, UT on September 7, 2014
This product is reputed to attract and kill flies....it is my understanding that this product at one time had been golden color and would kill a fly that just looked at it, the product is now blue in color and the flys are no longer attracted to the bait, if they die, not sure. Don't waste you money... The only reason I gave it one star is this review site made me select one.

By Kris in Atlanta, GA on July 29, 2014
This stuff is awesome. I had flies galore, but I left a small tray outside with this inside and BOOM. It looked like there had been an explosion of fly death. It didn't eradicate all file, but now I can sit outside without feeling like a harassment victim. I'm totally ordering again!

August 26, 2009 Birgit asked:
QWhat happens if an animal eats the Golden Malrin Fly Bait?
AYou should always keep pest control products as well as cleaning chemicals or any other like product away from and out of reach of children and pets. A pet would have to consume a large quantity of Golden Malrin Fly Bait to get sick. We do offer fly bait stations that only let flies in to eat the bait and keep it locked up from children and pets. If your pet happens to eat a large quantity, then you should call your veterinarian immediately.
March 19, 2011 Debbie asked:
QWhat do you consider a large amount if consumed by a cat?
AAn average 8 or 9 lb cat would have to eat several teaspoons of Golden Malrin for there to be a toxic effect. Golden Malrin should only be used in secured Fly Bait Stations or in areas that are inaccessible to animals to avoid accidental ingestion.
July 24, 2011 Tammy asked:
QWhere should I place the fly bait in my stables so the horses cannot get to it?
AWithout seeing your stable we have no way of knowing what areas would be inaccessible to your horses. If you find that you do not have an area that is inaccessible to the horses where you can safely scatter the bait, the product label does allow you to use the Golden Malrin Fly Bait in tamper resistant Fly Bait Stations. The stations should be placed at least 4 feet off the ground and out of reach of the horses.
April 21, 2010 Laura asked:
QHow will this product affect birds?
AWhile we cannot tell how you exactly how the product will affect birds, we can tell you that it is known to be toxic to birds. We recommend using the Golden Malrin Fly Bait in secure, tamper resistant Fly Bait Stations to avoid having birds come into contact with it.

Jeff from Deleon Springs, Fl asked:
QWill Golden Malrin Fly Bait kill or make a dog or cat very ill?
A The Golden Malrin Fly Bait label states that children or pets should not be allowed in treated areas. It is not intended to be used inside, around home or any place where children or pets are likely to be present. It is likely very harmful to both so make sure it is being used with caution.
May 6, 2015
Michelle from Durham asked:
QCan I put Golden Malrin in my stalls where flies are breeding?
It's cool there, and they are clean, but the flies for some reason nest in there. Is it safe?
A If you use Golden Malrin or similar fly baits in animal stalls, barns, or similar areas, then you must apply it in tamper-resistant bait stations at least 4 feet above the ground and in areas inaccessible to food-producing animals, children, and pets. We suggest the FBS-1 Fly Bait Station since it can be mounted easily and opened with a simple key. You may also want to add fly traps to your treatment for optimum control.

Bill from Odessa, Tx asked:
QWill less than a teaspoon of Golden Malrin kill a 30 pound dog?
A Golden Malrin is labeled to kill flies. It should not be given to or applied to areas where dogs are present. If your dog ingested a teaspoon of the product, please contact your vet. I have included the MSDS for you as well. The manufacturer of the product can be reached at 800.248.7763.

Frank from Lincoln Park, Michigan asked:
QWill Starbar Golden Malrin(fly bait w/Muscamone fly attractant) kill rats like a fly powder can?
Someone told me that "fly powder" will kill rats. I went to the local mill and asked for fly powder and was given Starbar Golden Malrin. It is in crystal form. If sprinkled in & around rat hole entry-ways will it work to kill these rats, or is "fly powder" something altogether different?
A We apologize, we cannot recommend any fly powder for killing rats as it is not labeled for that use. You can contact Zoecon 800-248-7763 to see if their Golden Marlin fly bait can be used for killing rats. We would recommend to seal the holes with Stuff it Copper Mesh and use the T- Rex snap traps or Protecta Rat Bait Stations with a rodenticide like Fastrac Blox to kill the rats.

Christina from Northern California asked:
QCan a pet become ill from eating flies that have ingested Goldin Malrin? My dogs snap at flies all the time.
A The small amount of active ingredient in the Golden Malrin is only enough to harm a small fly. There should be no harm to your pets from eating a few flies.
