Real Time FliesBeGone
This is awesome!, July 6, 2006
By Joseph Nicholas
thing is awesome. I didn't have that many flies in my back yard,
but they were around. The fly trap arrived last Wednesday, I set
it up according to the instructions and hung it in a tree in an
out of the way spot. After returning from a long weekend, I was
thrilled to see that the thing was 1/4 full- probably 1000 flies
at least. I haven't noticed any smell, but I can say that it is
not the most esthetically pleasing thing, but what do you expect
for a fly trap? This is awesome!
application a little different. Dog owners please read., August 19,
By Curtis Gomez (Burbank, CA USA) - See all my reviews
I have to say that this thing catches a lot of flies. The first
day it caught fifty and after that it ramped up quickly to two or
three hundred a day. But if you live in a city like I do you may
not be able to get this thing far enough away from you. The instructions
tell you to place it at least 35 feet from the area that you use.
But 50 feet is probably better, as the flies are gathering in heavy
numbers within 15 feet of the bait. After a few day the bait smell
is also obvious at that distance. So if you have a large backyard
(I do not) put the trap in the farthest corner. Or if you don't
like your neighbors...
The bait is a smelly powdered protein meal that reminds me of dog
kibble. My dog went on a sniffing frenzy when I received the box.
She is also lured to the hanging bait. So if you have pets make
sure they can't reach it. It's not toxic, but believe me, you wouldn't
want to clean that mess.
As far as the fly types it catches in my yard, 99.9% are green bottle
and blue bottle flies (AKA blow flies) and a few house flies. I
have observed many flesh flies lured to it but the trap cover has
too narrow a gap for them to enter comfortably. You could leave
the top off I suppose but the added water would evaporate quicker
in the recommended direct sun. Other extremely tiny fly types I
could not identify were also lured but in very few numbers.
Yes I spent a lot of time staring at the trap.
In the dozen years Flies Be Gone has been in use NO PETS have died
from eating this product. The bag contains 100% protein, so the
worst that happens is a bad stomach ache!
great. Just one thing......, August 9, 2007

bought this trap in an effort to battle our terrible fly problem.
I think the flies are coming from our 2 dogs, but we also have a
lot of flies around our trash can. This trap works wonders. It is
a very effective alternative to spraying poisons around the house.
It is very easy to set up. All you do is pour in the bait and some
warm water and hang it up. Based on the instructions, we hung it
on the side of our house where we don't spend a lot of time. Although
there is a foul odor (the bait as well as rotting flies) because
of where we hung it, this was not a problem. I found it to be very
satisfying checking the trap every day to see how many flies it
had caught. I'm not just talking about 10 or 20 flies, I'm talking
about hundreds or thousands of flies.
only problem I had was that it filled up with too much water when
it rained. I placed a hook on the corner of my eaves and hung the
trap from the hook. However, it was not protected from the rain
or sprinkler. Next time, I will hang the trap up under the eave
so it will not fill up with water and prevent flies from entering
trap was very easy to dispose of also. Just snap the top back down,
place in a plastic grocery bag, and throw away. I love products
that actually work!

Be Gone trap review, May 24, 2007

myself having used those smaller Rescue fly traps around my barn,
I found this trap no more effective. Sad to find out considering
product, but there are cheaper and comparable stuff out there.,

have great results using the Flies be gone fly trap. It took a couple
of days to activate, but once after that it can traps inches of
flies. However, I've tried a similar product from RESCUE (which
is available at local hardware stores for only $5.00) which also
worked as great. Maybe I have too many flies to begin with, which
makes it impossible to separate the good from the excellent, but
with the local availability and 1/3 of the cost, the other product
wins hands down for me.
The RESCUE product is only 1/4 the size of Flies Be Gone See
Dinky Vs. Macho...How many flies can THAT catch? (Rescue doesn't
say). You'll have to use 4 Resues for ONE Flies Be Gone! Let's see,
that's $5x4=$20! You could buy ONE FBG and save $5.00!

THING IS INSANE L O L, August 14, 2009
By Filet Mignon (Pasadena, CA) - See all my reviews
this is an insane piece of work. Put this up in your backyard, stand
back, and be amazed at the awesomeness that is the Flies Be Gone
Fly Trap. The bag will literally fill up with thousands of flies.
It will get so gross that maggots will start showing up in the bag
as well. Cool. So purchase this bad boy, get a can of soda, prop
up your lawn chair, and watch those flies soaking in their own juices.
The creator of this product deserves a Nobel Prize.
The flies in
my backyard used to eat away my dog's ears till it bled. Now, the
Flies Be Gone. A++.
Thanks for the Nobel Prize nomination! 'Very much appreciated.
This thing works like no other! , June

takes about 3-4 days to start working but after that, it's the most
incredible product for flies!
100% organic. That means no chemicals!
Please look at the pictures i posted, and that's only 2 and 1/2
weeks in Long Island, New York.
You can't go wrong here. Make sure you buy at least 2 or 3 because
when it's full and you throe it away, you'll miss it.

it far away from your house and you'll be fine. This thing attracts
flies like crazy!
When you have the choice of having flies on you and your food, the
smell alternative is much easier to take. Ask anyone whoever had
to work in their backyard!
"THIS" Fly Trap Works! You could ask the flies but, they
are DEAD!, July 29, 2009
By J. McCann "The Unknown Critic" (Fife Lake, MI.) - See

first buying the cheaper FARNAM product "fly trap", and,
it didn't work hardly at all,.....even after giving it a double-dose
of the smelly fly attractant, I ordered "FLIES BE GONE"
here at AMAZON. In just 2 days, after delivery, and hanging it;....the
Flies Be Gone had doubled in what my Farnam product caught in 2
I've had it out for 4 days, and this Flies Be Gone is really killing
em' dead. They go to it like a Lion would to a dead Antelope!
can't go wrong! This product really works, and, it's nice to be
able to walk out onto my porch and not have flies flying in. I have
mine hanging just next to my door outside, and, the flies are actually
fighting each other to commit suicide! They don't even bother to
sit or hang around my porch. They are sitting on top of the Flies
Be Gone receptacle!
the Flies Be Gone costs more than the Farnam product, but, it comes
down to how much you want it to work! This Flies Be Gone works I
guarantee it! It's basement and garage innovators that come up with
these neat inventions, and, whom ever created this product is a
rocket scientist, and, a rich one at that!
Works Well but ..., September 30, 2009
By Humble Patriot (New England) - See all my reviews
The trap works well but the odor is overwhelming. I used to drive
a truck for FedEx Ground in the Northeast, and each autumn the sporting
goods stores would get shipments of fox urine and deer urine. Even
though the urine was in sealed plastic containers, the odor was
revolting and it always stunk up the truck really bad for days.
These traps smell just like the urine shipments; no wonder the flies
love them. You will need a big backyard for this one, and you'll
want to put it as far away from your house as possible. When I finally
took the trap down for disposal, I was gagging so violently from
the smell that I almost lost it. By this time, though, the smell
had mutated into something unspeakable. Be forewarned.
As with ALL fly traps, Flies Be Gone's ordor gets bad only
when filled with dead flies! The most appreciaed word in
this review is "Trap Works". Thanks!
