Basic House fly facts:

  • Houseflies lived over 65 million years ago!
  • The easiest and simplest  way to keep flies out of your home is to keep things clean. Don’t leave food lying around, make sure you take out the trash every day and wipe up spilled messes right away.
  • They prefer corners and edges or thin objects to rest on. Indoors, they rest on floors, walls and ceilings during the day.
  • House flies are the most common of all flies and always found in the company of humans and are inactive at night.
  • Houseflies have no mouth but it has an eating tube through which it vomits a drop of fluid from its stomach and deposits it on its intended meal – GROSS. This fluid is then sucked up along with the nutrients it has dissolved, leaving behind untold numbers of germs.
  • Female houseflies can lay 2,500 eggs in just a month.
  • Adult houseflies can live 30 – 60 days.
  • Houseflies are a perfect host for all types of bacteria… proven carriers of such germs as gangrene, Typhoid, leprosy, tuberculosis, amoebic dysentery, bubonic plague, and listeria, just to name a few.

Solar Fly Trap – Captures Hordes of Flies!

Used by horse owners, breeding and training facilities, dairies, poultry and swine facilities, feedlots, gardeners, pet owners, kennels, and other places where flies are a problem.

This made-to-last, rust-free, heavy duty trap goes anywhere. Use it to reduce existing fly populations, fly blooms and migrant flies.

The yeast bait is mixed with water and poured into the container at the bottom of the trap. Within seconds flies are lured into the trap. They enter into the confinement chamber and dehydrate from exposure to the sun. When the solar fly trap begins to fill up with flies, just empty, hose out and reset with new bait.

Comes with one packet of bait, which is enough for approximately 5 weeks.

$75 at our office, not cheap but will last forever and won’t smell like those other devices.

Dimensions: 12″ Dia. x 10.5″ tall
