Review RateI don\'t know, have not used them yet.I have not used them yet. I will not use them until next summer, and I didn't want to open them because I am giving some to my children for Christmas.
Review RateAmazon Review, Still the best way to catch a flyI hang these out one at time on my back porch and near the back yard to eliminate almost all insect activity. I catch everything on these ribbons: flies, gnats, mosquitos, moths, aliens (we get some really weird bugs). By far the cheapest way to control flying insects.
Review RateAmazon Review, Excellent, easy and non-toxicThese things just work. I've tried aerosols, liquids, flyswatters and whatever else is on the shelf but when it comes down to it, these are some of the simplest, cheapest and non-toxic way to stop flying pest problems. I'll hang one of these where a light source is and simply wait. It's great for currently flying insects and those emerging from your soil, getting ready to take their first, and last flight.
Review RateAmazon Review, Old trusted and trueThese are the best for in the house fly catching. Sold out in many stores this time of year, they are a necessity in any fly proned area. Just hang them out and change them out every few weeks. We use these to catch the occasional fly that our cats fail to eat. They work great.
Review RateAmazon Review, like a charmwe have 2 small dogs and i can't always clean up after them right away. we get lots of flies outside the house, especially on hot day...yuck. i put 1 or 2 of these up on our tree when the flies get particularly bad and wait a couple days...all the flies end up on these things. i was skeptical but they are amazing.
Review RateThe best thing EVER!I am so embarrassed to admit I had a HUGE fly issue. A door was left open at an inopportune time. Coincidentally, I had left some compromised fruit on the counter. Add to this, almost an unscheduled week out of town and when I returned, there were flies EVERYWHERE!!! I bought a FEW fly-control products, and after a week, this was the ONLY product that worked. Ewww... Again, so ashamed. But the OTHER products I tried, caught NOTHING after THREE weeks. I sent you guys the pictures as proof, but it us so very unappetizing. I sent the company an email that lauded their product over their competitors. I even offered to be a reference - AND send pictures. After the email, they asked NOTHING of me and I just opened a big envelope with and dumped out a ton of free product onto my dining table. This was my awesome laugh of the week. Thank you SO much for putting out such a great product. I have posted and liked you guys on facebook. I feel like I could never do enough online evangelizing to do you guys justice. JUST AWESOME!!!
Review RateVictor Fly CatcherI bought the fly catcher this past weekend thinking it would solve the fly problem. We had many guests and our doors were opened and closed many times. I hung them beside the door and guess what? They didn't catch one fly. What a waste of money!
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comWe have three horses and despite meticulously kept stalls and paddocks, we still have the fly problem from hell. Living in the high desert, it's not uncommon for anywhere that has ANY source of water and warm, moving flesh to be inundated. We bought a trap that smells like a rotting carcass that is kept about 50 feet from the barn, and it does work, but these fly strips have been AMAZING. We hang them in the eaves of the roof in each horse's area and they fill up pretty quickly. We've noticed a marked difference in the number of flies -- it's probably about a quarter of what it was before the strips. They're not pretty and they're pretty archaic, but I love the fact that we're not poisoning the area our horses are living in.
Review RateReview Posted on Amazon.comI was at my wit's end with the spontaneous fly "situation" that has developed in my place. As a) I live indoors; and b) I have pets, I wanted a solution that was non-toxic and non-horrifically-stinky. I found the answer with these Victor fly ribbons, which even come packaged with a thumbtack for you to use to fasten them to the ceiling.The fly ribbons are ugly as sin--more so when dotted with flies--but they really do work well. I've had great luck trapping both fruit flies and "larger" flies alike. Be careful to avoid touching the sticky ribbon with your hands, as it takes some effort to wash off the goo.
- All About
All About Flies Victor® Poison-Free™ Fly Ribbon 4pk 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
Natural & Organic 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.
Why Choose a Natural Solution?
Natural solutions break down quickly to their natural elements. They are preferable to chemical pesticides that leave residuals where they are sprayed causing long-term detrimental effects on the environment.
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 throughout 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.
Flying Insect Trap - FAQs
Q: How do your Fly Traps compare in efficacy to one another and to an ultraviolet trap?
A: For outdoor fly use, the fly trap is the best. If by ultraviolet, you mean bug zappers, they are ok, but attract a lot of other insects 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, consisting 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 suggest Victor® Fly Tape, or Victor® Fly Strip for indoor use to attract and trap flies odorlessly. More»
