If you have livestock, then this product is for you. (Even if you don't) I am astonished at its effectiveness. ~ss

Have been using them for years.

MAKE sure you place them at least 25 ft from any people or animal gathering spots. Trust me on this 1.
What's up? I want to hang one off the ground in the carport. Say 6 ft off the ground. Will it be ok with the dogs being under it at times?

Im pretty sure it because they attract as well as capture. You will be drawing alot more of them into your carport.

Yes, my sentiments as well. I use the refillable ones. You can refill the soft ones too, but the UV trashes the plastic.

So yeah, they catch lots of flies. Even ones (I suspect) from a mile away that come buzzing in to follow the pheromone.

I used this brand on the beach for the first time this year, kind of expensive, but worked very well.
One next to the trash can, one next to “the groover”,
The hard plastic type bottle are much easier to add water to make up for evaporation, compared to the floppy soft ones.

Yes they attract too many flies.

Buy 1 of the plastic bottle reusable types. When it's full just dump them. There are all kinds of sugar, vinegar , milk recomendations out there. But for the most part they are worthless advice. Go to a local Walmart or whereever and buy some liquid fish fertilizer. Add about a teaspoon and fill up to 1/4 with water.

Keep it the hell away from the house. They trap about 1/3 of what they attract. I'd rather the flies were else where.

Interesting.. I tried a few of those same identical type traps they make for the yellow jackets. Picked them up last year in wally world iirc. Maybe they were old, because they didnt work very well on the yellow jackets at all, but instead seemed to fill up mostly with lightning bugs and the like.
