The Vector 960 Fruit Fly Trap allows you to locate the source or sources of fruit fly infestation by monitoring the count of flies caught.

Removable lid allows for easy monitoring and identification.




Vector 960 Fruit Fly Trap allows you to locate the source or sources of fruit fly infestation by monitoring the count of flies caught. The Vector 960 trap features a 10-hole venting lid to optimize fruit fly exposure to vapors emitted from the patented food grade attractant, maximizing catch. Removable lid allows for easy monitoring and identification.


General Product Information:
· Newest low profile, ready-to-use trap specially designed to capture fruit flies
· This versatile trap has a patented food grade attractant that readily attracts several species of fruit fly
· Trap efficacy is further enhanced by the orange-colored plastic with a specially selected chemical composition used for the trap base and lid.
· The Vector Fruit Fly Trap is engineered with 10-hole venting lid to optimize fruit fly exposure to the vapors emitted from the liquid attractant.
· The lid is removable for easy monitoring and identification of catch.

Vector 960 Fruit Fly Trap Activation Instructions:
1. Activate Vector 960 Fruit Fly Trap by pulling the cellophane wrapper off the base of the trap exposing the food grade attractant. Be careful not to spill the liquid attractant.
2. Snap the 10-hole venting cap onto the base and place trap as described below

Vector 960 Fruit Fly Trap Placement and Use:
1. Place the traps in areas where Fruit Flies have been seen. Place the traps where they will not be disturbed or tipped.
2. Avoid placing traps over food preparation areas or exposed food to minimize fruit fly activity and attraction in this area. These areas also have a high degree of human activity, which increases the chance that the trap will be tipped or knocked out of position.
3. Use supplied glue dots to secure the trap in place.
4. Remove the lid to count the number of adults in the trap. If there are a large number of captured flies in a single trap, you may want to strain the liquid for ease of counting.
5. Record trap counts on a site map.
6. Discard traps after 30-days of use and replace with new traps.

Common Use Areas:
Traps are most effective when placed near breeding sites. Place behind or under bars, beverage centers, dishwashers, food displays, food service islands, sinks, ovens, supply racks, vending machines, food preparation tables, etc.

NOTE: Fruit Flies will gravitate toward decaying food odors so it is important to discard all food peels and food materials to minimize fruit fly activity in production areas.

    5 of 5 stars  Amazing!
    By Sheree on 07/16/2007

    I don't think we had fruit flies. They must have been a type of filth fly like a Phorid Fly or something like that. They were very small. They had accumulated from a trash bag that was left in the garage. It seems like hundreds got in our home when the door to the garage was left open. I purchased a couple of the Vector 960 Fruit Fly Traps and put 1 in the kitchen and 1 outside by the trash. Within 5 days, they had all disappeared. The small orange containers were full of little flies. I was amazed.

    Worked well for the first few weeks. Then it stopped working completely.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    These traps do a great job of catching fruit flies, but the key to stopping fly activity is to find the source.  If you do not get rid of the source of the problem, then these traps will only work for a short time.  The traps will only attract for 30 days, then you need to put new ones out.  The key however is to find the source of the problem.  It could be rotting food behind something, or the flies could be something else, like drain flies or fungus gnats.

    I have bought these fly traps for the past 3 years. We seem to get fruit flies every year and they are horrible. Once I put these traps out, the problem is eliminated in two days at most. The Vector traps are fantastic!

    5 of 5 stars  Great Product, FAST shipment.
    By Pacnorwest in Poulsbo, WA on 11/17/2010

    Our order arrived very fast. We purchased two of the fruit fly traps and put them out right away. Within a day we noticed a significant decrease and after four days all the fruit flies were gone with none reappearing. Be advised you do have to find the source or they are not going to be all that effective. We found a piece of fruit in our office trash can and that was our source! We will definitely order these again if needed and from this company.

  • 1 of 5 stars  Very Disappointing Results
    By Harvey in Indianapolis, IN on 10/25/2016

    I purchased 2 traps for an infestation of brown gnats in my kitchen I researched for a long time on how to get rid of them since there were so many. Up until now I was using a simple w liter bottle with dish soap and water. I was catching them but not fast enough. I got the vector 960 and placed them at opposite ends of the kitchen where I saw them most. After about 2 weeks I checked the traps. The gnats landed on the lids along with everything else but did not enter the mixture. I left them out for total 3 weeks. The gnats became even more dense until I found the source. I returned the soapy solution to the kitchen. My soapy solution caught and drown the gnats every day but nothing and I mean nothing in the Vector 960. There were a few more left at the end of the third week. By then my wife had had enough. I used an insect bomb to kill the rest. There were no gnats in the Vector 960. Sorry but unless Indiana gnats are just different and I needed the Indiana version of the Vector 960 I cannot recommend it. P.S. Shipping was fast!!!

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry that you did not receive the results you hoped from the Vector traps. It is possible that you may have been dealing with a different type of fly other than fruit flies. Be sure, also, that you have removed the plastic film covering the attractant before placing traps out in the target area. We are glad that you were able to locate the source of your fly problem. Please let us know if you have further questions; we are happy to assist you anytime. We appreciate your comments and your business!

  • 2 of 5 stars  Not very effective
    By Tami in Wexford, pa on 10/02/2016

    The flies tended to linger on top of the trap instead of going into it. I had better success with a glass of vinegar with plastic wrap on top.

  • 5 of 5 stars  These really work!
    By Judi in Bluffton, SC on 08/19/2016

    We do a lot of juicing and have various fruits sitting out all of the time. We were over run by fruit flies. When a fruit fly flew out of my banana cream pie and hit me in the nose, I ordered these. Within a couple of days after putting out a couple, the flies were gone! They are easy to hide and they don't create an odor in the area where I put them. I change them every couple of months.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    We are sorry to hear that you are not seeing the expected results. The traps will help to capture adult fruit flies but you must find the fruit fly breeding source to eradicate the infestation.

    3 of 5 stars  Might work on "real" Fruit Flys
    By William in Rochester, NY on 01/28/2015
    Verified Purchase

    We purchased two of these thinking that the little black flies were Fruit Flies and we were having a mid-winter infestation because of bad habits. We followed instructions which were simple enough but the little rascals ignored the traps. It may be that the pests are not Fruit Flies, maybe all itty bitty flies aren't Fruit Flies after all. At any rate, whatever the critters are, they weren't attraced to the traps.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    You may have drain flies, which are often confused with fruit flies. You can check your drains by placing an angled glue board with the sticky side down over drains in the area where you are finding the flies. Our Drain Fly Kit contains glue boards, InVade Bio Drain Gel, and On Time Aerosol for complete drain fly monitoring and treatment: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/drain-fly-kit-p-1052.html. This product page also contains an excellent step-by-step video demonstrating how to use the products in the kit.

    Our normal pest control man suggested we treat drain flies with this trap as others said they have better results with this than the recommended treatment for them. Did not do well at all. We just ordered and received the InVade Bio Drain and will try that.

    By Ray in Lowell, MA on 09/27/2014
    Verified Purchase

    This product did a good job of attracting the fruit flies that I had in my house (New England area), but it didn't actually trap any. Flies would congregate on top of the lid and enjoy a little aromatherapy, but none ever went into the "trap" itself. Can't recommend this item.

    Yea, the flies come and hang around it but that's it. I opened it up and it had killed maybe 1 fruit fly. Save your money and just use your own vinegar.

QAre the Vector 960 Fruit Fly Traps safe to use around pets and children?

AYes. The Vector 960 Fruit Fly Traps can be safely used around children and pets. There is no actual poison in the trap, just a fruity, vinegary smelling liquid that the fruit flies are attracted to. Once inside the trap, the fruit flies cannot get out. Traps should still be placed in areas that are inaccessible to children to avoid spills.

QHow will the Vector 960 Fruit Fly Trap help find the source?
If I place a few traps around the kitchen where I see the flies congregate. How will the trap help me find the source(s)?

A

TheVector 960 Fruit Fly Trap†will not help find the sources of an infestation. It will attract and trap the fruit flies in the area. To find the source you will need to check drains, food items that may not be sealed, waste receptacles, etc.
