Flies are a pest in summer and are very annoying and dirty. Fly trap bag is an effective way of preventing flies from hanging around food and preparation areas, and also keeps them away from people and animals.
The disposable fly trap bag can catch up to 20,000 flies-including blue/green bottles and blowflies. The product uses a water-soluble liquid attractant that is released once water is added to the trap. Once trapped, the flies then get caught in the liquid and drown.
How To Use
- Take the fly bag and unscrew the lid so the bag hangs from it. Holding the lid of the fly bag, fill the fly bag with water from the tap up to the fill line marked on it.
- Hang the trap vertically by the twist tie attached to the lid in a suitable outdoor position, preferably in the sun and out of the way of food/animals. Ideally near where the flies are coming from (if known).
- Ensure that the trap is held securely in place by the twist wrap and onto the item that the trap is hung from. Where large numbers of traps are used, place the traps about 10m apart. This distance should be reduced in areas of, particularly high insect activity. Once hung, squeeze the bag a few times to aid mixing of the active. The bags may need to be squeezed a couple of times every few days to break up any coagulation of proteins that may form on the surface of the liquid.
Replacing the trap
The trap should be inspected regularly and replaced when the liquid is saturated with dead flies. The trap can be topped up with water to the line if needed. To dispose of the trap, screw the lid closed, remove from its hanging position and throw away via standard waste disposal means.
Keep water topped up to the fill level (don’t allow the trap to dry out)
During storage, store away from damp conditions, direct heat, hot areas, and direct sunlight. Avoid applying excessive weight to boxes to avoid crushing of the contents. The trap systems should be kept under good storage conditions at below 15°C. Under these conditions, the product and the attractant will be usable for a minimum of 2 years.
