A Little History on Flies Be Gone
non-toxic fly traps
Flies Be Gone non-toxic fly traps were developed
by entomologist (bug
experts) in Johannesburg,
South Africa to fight the worst flies in the world. Their
goal was to produce an economical, easy to use, user friendly,
environmentally friendly, ozone friendly fly trap that is
safe to have around children and pets. Also it was urgent
to have a well-designed trap CATCH and hold the flies to break
the reproduction cycle. Available fly repellents and sprays
CANNOT do this!
"ultra biomass" bait was developed by leading university
researchers and entomologists along with clever industrial
designers and plastics engineers in
the early 1980's creating
Flies Be Gone non-toxic fly traps.
This proven, sucessful time-tested, and often immitated design
is the world renown
Flies Be Gone non-toxic fly trap

and works far more effectively. Flies Be Gone,

Central and South America and parts of Asia. Flies

1. Why Use A Flies Be Gone
Fly Trap & Not A Repellent?
Have you given thought to where
the flies go after you repel them? They come right back to
lay there eggs elsewhere on your food or property!! Why not
trap them for good so they don't have a chance to come back?
Flies Be Gone is much better than
any repellent as it becomes a haven for flies to lay their
eggs which hatch inside the trap unable to escape! See
our pictures from the Bahamas Consistant use of Flies
Be Gone will help stop the egg-laying cycle
thus reducing the fly population dramatically. The flies and
their eggs die inside the Flies Be Gone
Is Flies Be Gone designed for indoor or outdoor use?
The idea is to PREVENT flies from entering the indoors, keeping
out of working and living spaces. This is what Flies Be Gone
Ultra Biomass bait is composed of sterilized food materials.
Pour the bait into the trap and add water. When they warm
in the sun, food scents drift out of the trap and into a wide
area of the atmosphere. This attracts the flies. The warmer
the weather, the quicker this happens. Flies Be
Gone should be placed outdoors in direct sunlight.
Not indoors and not under a roof.
The closest exception is in very warm climates such
as semi-deserts and desert areas where it routinely gets around
100F. In these areas the day temperature and evening temperatures
are warm enough to activate the Ultra Biomass in the trap
without being directly exposed to the sun. This will allow
you to hang your Flies Be Gone under
an eve, a tree or any shaded area outdoors and it will still
work very well. Still watch the water level, though, as it
WILL evaporate more.
Does the Ultra Biomass Bait begin to attract flies immediately?
AFTER A FEW DAYS. The bait must
warm in the sun and the scents be carried into the atmosphere,
as mentioned above. In warm weather, this begins to happen in
about 2 days. In cooler climates, it can take a few more days
to reach full tempo. The process can be speeded up by activating
the bait with water and keeping the solution warm in a jar indoors
before transferring it outdoors. In both warm and cool climates,
the activation can be speeded up by adding in a pinch of your
local damp soil to your Flies Be Gone.
Is FliesBeGone Toxic, Poisonous, or an Insecticide?
NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. NO.
Hope we have made this point clear.
Over how large an area is the trap effective?
About 150 to 300 feet (50 to 100 meters) radius.
What do we do with it when it is time to replace the trap?
You can safely just throw it away but we strongly
suggest cutting the bag and burying the contents in the soil.
Or if you are a bit adventuresome, the contents can be emptied
into a flower bed since the decomposing flies make an EXCELLENT
natural fertilizer (NOT recommended for vegetable gardens).
Is there an odor?
SOME. There might be as the
flies begin to decompose. Most odor comes when the Flies
Be Gone becomes full of dead flies, as with any
trap. When Flies Be Gone is 3/4 full,
it's time to replace.
We strongly recommend replacing the trap as soon
as it appears full so as to maintain effectiveness in the area
you are protecting. However,
should your trap not be 3/4 full the best solution
is to move the trap downwind or change the trap a bit more frequently.
If you are not getting as many flies in the trap as normal that's
really good news as it indicates that the trap is breaking the
What happens if the water evaporates due to my local climate?
Best thing is to top it up with your garden
hose or watering can. There should be a minum of 3 inches
( 7.5 cm ) of water in the trap. My rule of thumb is to keep
the trap 3/4 full.
How long does it take to unpack the unit and add the bait
? In other words, ready to use?
About 45 seconds.
How big is each shipping pack?

hermetically sealed pack that is one inch (2.5 cm) in depth.
Does it catch other types of insects and bugs as well?
YES. Not as well as the flies
themselves, but definitely yes. Any insect that feeds on meat
products or attracted to any form of bio mass such as spoiling
food will enter your Flies Be Gone
