Traditional Pest Control Ways Effective In Trapping Of ...

Fly traps are an ancient solution to the fly problem. This trap is pleasant enough to keep in the house and works much better, is more efficient, than any of the other methods commonly used. You may make your own fly traps based on your needs.

Fly Paper/Sticky Traps

Fly paper generally refers to a strip of paper or plastic that has been coated in an extremely sticky substance so that flies will stick to it permanently when they touch it. The coating on a piece of fly paper typically has three key ingredients: a durable adhesive that will remain sticky despite prolonged exposure to open air, a pheromone or other substance to attract flies and a poison, usually arsenic, to help kill the flies shortly after they become trapped on the paper. Fly paper is often sold in small canisters with the paper rolled up inside. To use it, one must grab the nonsticky end of the paper in the canister, pull the entire length of fly paper out and carefully affix the nonsticky end to the ceiling. The paper and empty canister will dangle as the strip collects flies, and when it is consumed, the fly-covered paper can be carefully lowered back into the original canister and disposed of.

Put sticky Traps where you see flies. Flies are visually attracted to these traps so put them in areas with light, not the darkest part of the area. Because House Flies generally rest higher up where it’s warmer, put Sticky Traps up high, above your critter’s reach. Sticky Traps are good because they’ll get the flies that are already there, but not bring more in. Sticky Traps work exactly how their name implies. They’re sticky so flies (and other not so lucky bugs) land on the trap they are stuck and can’t fly away.

Odor Traps

Odor Traps lure and catch House Flies (but not Stable Flies) from a wide area. The exception is if you’re drowning in gazillions of flies, then put Odor Traps where you see the flies, but only initially, to bring the population down. Then move the trap away from the barn to draw flies elsewhere. Unlike what you may have heard, you never, ever want to put these on or by your picnic table. Putting Odor Traps there is like inviting all the neighborhood flies to the party too.

Jar Traps

Jar traps are an interesting form of fly control, and perhaps the most economical option available. A jar trap is a jar or container that is either suspended from above or placed on a stand, but it cannot be covered on the bottom. This is because the middle of the bottom of the jar is an open hole surrounded by a shallow lip of glass or plastic. Users must pour a small amount of a fly-attracting substance such as syrup or sugar water into the doughnut-shape trough created by this lip. When a fly is attracted to the bait, it will find that the only way into the container is to fly into the opening from underneath. But once the fly is in the jar, it will not be able to figure its way back out. Because of this design, this trap can be very humane, provided that it is emptied outdoors on a regular basis. If flies are left trapped in the jar for too long, they will die and drop into the trough of bait.

For the simplest trap, just set out a glass of wine to which some dish detergent has been added — and be sure to label the glass so no one drinks the liquid. After landing on this liquid for a drink, fruit flies become wetted and are unable to take off again. Another trap capitalizes on flies’ low intelligence: A funnel set spout down over the opening of an upright glass filled with bait provides easy entry but clever exit, too clever for flies.
