Re: [RC] fly traps that WORK - Mary Howell

I live in hot, humid eastern Virginia and for several years, I've had great
success with those plastic bag style "20,000 fly" traps available for about
$5 each from horse.com - you break open the odorant, add water to the fill
line, & hang where your horses like to stand (baling twine works for this).

Add more water as needed; each bag lasts me several weeks. Flies fly in but
they can't fly out, or make more baby flies, so by midsummer my fly problem
is minor - just a few horseflies left to swat. As the flies fill the bag,
their smell attracts more flies - so I usually keep the old bag for a week
or two after setting out a new one out. Be careful not to let the liquid
spill when you take the trap down to dispose of it!
