How high off of the ground should QuikStrike Fly Abatement Strips be placed?

In what type of sheltered area can it be used?

Answer:

For the best results, don't place the QuikStrike® Fly Abatement Strip more than three feet off the ground. Typically, the closer to the ground the better the results. QuikStrike needs to be firmly attached since flies do not forage on moving objects.

QuikStrike should be used outdoors around dumpsters, in and around stables, dairy barns, milking parlors, kennels, poultry houses, aviaries, swine houses, feedlots, refuse and recycling facilities, plus other facilities where flies are a nuisance. When used outdoors, try to place QuikStrike in or on an area that will decrease the chance of the bait strip getting wet.

QuikStrike can also be used indoors in trash compactor rooms. However, while the active ingredient in QuikStrike is odorless, the attractants have a strong odor that could be offensive if placed indoors where people are living or working.
