Review RatefliesI was having big problem with flies around my deck. So I went to the local feed supplies to see if they had something. I was told to use Victor's Fly Magnet. I put the bait and cup out in the yard. Best thing ever. The bait caught some many. Now my neighbor went and bought the trap also.Iam fly free Thanks to Victors
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comI have 5 dogs and plenty of fruit trees on my premises that attract plenty of flies during the summer. In desperate need to get rid of some of the flies, I purchased 3 different fly traps. This one is the WINNER! It took 3 days for this product to attract flies, but once it did it worked well. I have had this trap outside for 5 days and it is half way filled with those annoying flies. My yard is not fly free ,but I'm happy to see that I can get rid of some flies by simply hanging the trap on a tree.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comThis is a great product - works really well. It catches so many flies that I need to order more.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comI set two traps up near the spot that I would do the grilling this past Fourth of July Weekend. This stuff really works. It is quick to set up and doesn't have any unusual odor for an outside product. I could also detect that my two fly traps may have benefited my neighbor and his outdoor grilling. He did not have any flies to have to contend with. I will be ordering a lot more of this product, in the near future.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comThis fly trap is beyond anything I had expected. Oh, I saw the picture of one that was filled with flies, but I didn't really believe that I would have that happen - but I did! I hung a trap about 25 feet from my back door and it is almost FULL of flies. I HATE having flies in my home and I haven't had any come in. They're all fighting to be the next one into the trap! LOLI'll definitely be ordering more, because although these traps are reusable I find that a bit too gross. The price is such that I'll just buy new ones. ;)
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comThese traps work great. Within 6 hours I already saw flies in the trap. The trap was full within 2 or 3 days and the flies were still trying to get in. If you're having a lot a trouble with flies, get several at a time.By the way, the stuff is pretty stinky if you are near by. Be careful not spill it, or as unfortunately happened to me, let your dog get into it. Not the worst smell know to mankind, but not something you'd want to voluntarily put up with either.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comUnlike similar products of several other brands, this fly trap is one that really works. I hung the unit from a hook in my garage ceiling two days ago, and there are already two inches of dead flies on top of the water. The bait is somewhat smelly - vaguely like liquified barnyard manure - so it's best used outside of living areas.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comExcellent. Very easy set up and it started to trap the flies immediately. We caught dozens of flies in just a few days. And it isn't even placed where there are many flies around. Would purchase it again.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comI live in Panama and for three or four months each year we have fly season. I mean flies like you have never seen in your life. I hung several of these traps outside my house and in just a couple of weeks I had at least 4 or 5 inches of dead flies in each one. I don't know how many that is but it probably a thousand in each trap. I got a lot more than most as we have Toucans and parrots in cages outside and they attract a lot of flies. Be sure to keep them at least 30 feet or so from your house so that the flies stay away from your house. Plus the traps have a highly unpleasant odor for people but the flies love them.
Review RateAWESOMEThis is the best way to kill flies. I recommended these to all my friends and family. Totally worth every penny. I just put mine out on Tuesday and it was full by Saturday.

All About Flies Victor® Fly Trap with Bait Controls
Houseflies (black, non-glossy body) and blowflies (metallic blue/green/gold body) are the most common types found around homes -- both are categorized as "filth flies". Houseflies are attracted more toward animal manure and decayed food, while the blowfly is attracted more to decayed meat (road kill) or fish.

Controlling Flying Insects
Blowfly & Housefly Controls
Indoor and outdoor fly traps containing non-poisonous baits, fly paper, and aerosol sprays containing pyrethrins/d-limonene are types of products that can be effective in controlling houseflies.
Indoor fly traps can be safely used inside the home when directions are followed. Outdoor fly traps can be used when many flies have infiltrated an area. There are different types of fly paper available for indoor and outdoor use as well.
Use non-poisonous aerosols such as those containing mint oil, pyrethrin, and d-limonene for instant spot control.
Outdoor fly traps contain food attractants that draws flies. These traps should be placed outdoors according to trap instructions. Set these traps away from outdoor living spaces. By attracting flies, the trap will keep them away from your home, patio or deck.
Indoor fly traps may also contain food based baits and can be used safely in the home when directions are followed. Some traps attract flies just because of their 3-D look. Flies are always looking for a place to land and the color contrast of some traps creates the look of an edge for them to land. Fly paper, an adhesive type of paper, can be placed around windows, in garages, and in barns and stables.
Use aerosols in accordance with directions on the product label.
Fly traps and fly paper should be placed when fly numbers increase. Flies increase in numbers as the temperature rises and often after rainfall since these factors cause the flies' eggs to hatch.
Flies are less active and roost in corners, on ceilings and on the tops of window panes during the heat of the day. Spraying them at this time of day is the most effective use of aerosol sprays.
Methods of controlling houseflies include all of the following: removing organic debris from the inside or outside of your house, properly maintaining screens and screen doors, and closing off any cracks in your outside walls that would allow flies to enter your home.
Remove organic debris and trash near your home and in your yard. Place it in a trash bag and tightly close it. Put it out on trash day.
Make sure all of your windows have screens on them. Fix or replace any screens containing holes. Keep doors or screen doors closed.
Use caulk or weatherstripping to fill in any cracks or holes in the outside walls of your home.
Pet waste should be cleaned and disposed of often and removed with the trash weekly.
Remove any organic debris and trash from inside as well as outside of your home thoroughout the year.
Check screens and screen door before installing or using in the Spring. Periodically check them throughout the summer. Also, check them in the fall before storing them.
Fill in any cracks or holes in your outside walls in late summer or early fall before houseflies enter your home in search of warmer surroundings.
Tips for Trapping Flies
- The system will generally attract flies from a distance of 30 to 40 feet, depending on wind conditions.
- Add water to the trap if the solution gets below the fill line. Water is needed to drown the trapped flies.
- Flies like heat, light, low wind. Place traps in sunny areas. If in an enclosed area such as a barn, place traps within 6 feet of an electrical light.
- Flies search low for food sources. Traps are most effective when placed 24 inches or less from ground level.
- Flies remain dormant until their body temperature reaches approximately 65 degrees F. Do not expect much activity below this temperature.
- Bait is also reusable for a period of time. Remove dead flies from liquid bait and add enough water to return liquid bait level to fill line.
- Replace bait when you notice a marked decrease in the number of flies in the trap.
Flying Insect Trap - FAQs
Q: How do your Fly Traps compare in efficacy to one another and to an ultraviolet trap?
A: For outdoor use, the fly trap is definitely the best. If by ultraviolet, you mean bug zappers, they are ok, but attract other insects too that are not a problem, including beneficial insects. More»
Q: What is the fly bait made of and is the odor offensive?
A: The bait formula is proprietary and consists mostly of food grade ingredients, specifically (proteins). The odor is not as strong if the trap is placed in an area with good air circulation. Most importantly, the flies love it!
Q: What do you recommend for indoor use and why?
A: I recommend Victor® Fly Tape, or Victor® Fly Strip for indoors. It will attract and trap flies effectively, and without the odor. More»
