I was very excited when I was contacted by the company Black Flag to try out there new Flying Insect Trap. It arrived very quickly and the next day I got it together and hung it on our tree out front. I was sent a box of fly lures and a box of wasp & yellow jacket lures. The flies had been horrible so I knew I wanted to try that lure out first. So I put the little catcher together, it literally took about 3 minutes. It was very simple.
You can see the "lure" in there. Its simply a little powder that you mix with water. I had planned on hanging this on a hanging plant rod that I have, but its not tall enough... so for now my tree will do :) I hung this last Saturday...the first day I really gave it a look was on Wednesday...I was surprised that it had caught quite a number of flies.
I know that it actually looks rather gross now, sorry about that :-/ but its amazing to me that it is still bringing those little boogers in! It does kind of stink though. The box says 1 lure will last 1 month, and I believe it, but I don't know that I will wait that long to clean it out, because really it reaks! But I am so happy with this little trap, I will be using this all summer for sure! And if the wasp one works just as well I will be even more thrilled!
You can purchase these at Wal-Mart, Sams Club & select Lowe's stores, for just $9.99 for the trap and $4.99 for the lures. One of you will win one of your own, just fill out the entry form below. I will leave this open until Tuesday June 12th, Good Luck!
