A Little History on Flies Be Gone non-toxic fly traps

World renown 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!

The Flies Be Gone "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 is you see today.

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 fly trap!

2. 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 does.

The 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.

3. 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.
4. Is FliesBeGone Toxic, Poisonous, or an Insecticide?
NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. Hope we have made this point clear.
5. Over how large an area is the trap effective?
About 150 to 300 feet (50 to 100 meters) radius.
6. 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).
7. 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 reproduction cycle!

8. 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.

9. How long does it take to unpack the unit and add the bait ? In other words, ready to use?
About 45 seconds.

Each trap ships in it's individually plastic, hermetically sealed pack that is one inch (2.5 cm) in depth.
