Don't know whats in the chemical, but after one fly has died in green chemical, a lot more flies will go in and die
Bought it from Bunnings Aust.
Have used it in the past, to very high success.
First, no flies will go in, then one fly goes in, and buzzes, then dies in the liquid.
After it goes to about 10 dead flies, it fills up quite fast.
2 sizes are great to have too.

No proper information on active ingredients
Unfortunately I'm sitting at the emergency vets with my dog who has just eaten a sachet of the bait. The vet and myself are unable to find what the active ingredient is in your product. Because of this we have had to induce vomiting as a precaution. Which could have been avoided if your imformation was readily available. I would expect that if the public isn't privy to this information, then at least medical personnel would be. Very disappointed!

catches so many flies I have to empty weekly! I was not aware there were so many flies around this year! There was even a cockroach in it this time, YAY! I have one on each side of the house.

Death to flies
Can't believe how many flies in the trap after EIGHT days. Love this product. My neighbor has never seen anything like it before and is going to get one for his yard.

My tried, tested and proven solution to fly trap problem
My neighbour and i both use the fly trap it works a treat but yes it does smell disgusting as the fly's accumulate ,i have found pouring a little bleach into the the fly container prior to pouring it down the drain ,toilet or in the back garden it will eliminate the stench and the breeding of maggots .As does a dash of bleach to your garbage bins ,awaiting collection if there was no other option of disposing the likes of soiled nappies or seafood scraps . I really hope I have helped any of you out there with these problems.

Envirosafe Fly Trap Works a Treat without Harsh Sprays!
My daughter put us onto these a year ago and I must say we are impressed! I hate flies in the house - and am constantly spraying - in fact I was known as FLY SPRAY ANNIE by my family and drove hubby crazy with the constant spraying which aggravated his sinus. Welcome the Envirosafe Fly Trap - two at the back entertainment area and one at the laundry door takes care of most unwanted flies - easy to set up, very cheap to purchase - the only downside is the nasty smell once the container starts to fill, and you are left with disposal issue - but a small price to pay for taking better care of hubby's sinus and the environment I guess! So yes, I keep purchasing these from Bunnings and will recommend to others!

How to dispose of contents
Catches lots of flys and breeds lots of maggots. Problem is how to dispose of the disgusting stinky mess without creating another breeding source for flys. Tried pouring boiling water into trap, emptying the contents into hole in ground, adding more boiling water then lots of top soil. Next day discovered it to be full of fat maggots - a perfect breeding ground for flys that recreated my fly problem. HELP. How do I effectively and safely dispose of the stinky contents without breeding even more flies?

It works but...
It definitely works but I agree with "newo" another reviewer who suggested adding a raw egg. That's when the flies really flocked to mine. Before that it didn't seem to be attractive to flies at all. Now it's quite exciting watching them being caught and dying in there rather than coming in my house and bothering me ☺.
3 weeks later, I added some raw chicken. My partner, a scientist, assured me it would emit the odour of putrescine, rotting flesh, which flies find irresistible. It has worked. The little so and so's have almost filled the conta...iner but oh man does it smell! Yes it does! And somebody asked about keeping the maggots from getting out, I've noticed they crawl up the side a bit, some ants get them but mostly they stay in the quagmire of poison and stench, get fat and die too. All good.

I live on the Gold Coast with a large dog that poops in the yard (naturally). Also, our neighbour has some sort of flowering tree that attracts lots of flies when the flowers drop over our yard. Sometimes when out in the yard all I hear is a "humming" of flies that eventually can (and do) make their way into the house.
I bought 2 of these fly traps and followed the instructions and left them on the ground in full sunlight. I couldn't believe it when I checked them the next day there were about 200 hundred flies that had met their fate.
I ha...d to change them, and thought, stuff it, I'm gonna buy a jumbo size which I did. It's been about 1 hour and their are heaps of flies already caught in it. I can only surmise that these numbers will decrease over the next few days and our problem will be manageable or hopefully gone for the summer if they are maintained properly. I only wish I had thought of this earlier!!! P.S I don't know why people are whining about the smell if they are placing these traps in their house - they are meant for OUTDOOR use only! Also, place them AWAY from the house so flies aren't hanging around the doors and window areas. Simple...

Finally a flytrap that works!
Just bought it yesterday afternoon and not 24hrs have gone by that it's caught 13 flies. Seriously.
From the reviews, and the already light stench of death...we're anticipating this things will stink up the place but that won't stop us from using it. It's too good!
We did already have to move it to the balcony however, as it's working so well! Flies are literally coming into the house just for it because it's so attractive to them so yeah, just left it out onto the balcony which is great as it'll pull the flies out from inside.

A Total Waste of Money
Too hard to find areas to hang and place around the home. I found this product not at all effective to my liking. Cheaper method. 1.25 bottle of soft drink And leave and leave a bit in the bottom with the lid off

Catches so many flies. Need to empty every few days but worth it. Been buying it for years for the summer months but noticing that the jar is a weaker plastic which causes it to break.

Excellent for semi-rural areas
Add a raw egg to the water-bait mix and mix well. Recycle the juice when you empty the trap by adding some water, stirring and pouring off gently into another container, compost the flies then add the old juice to the new.
Like any rotting thing keep it away from pets and children. People who allow their animals to get at the bacterial mess will be in for a big vet bill, but seriously great to catch flies.
Don't place it close to your house
Plastic fails after a year in the sun.

This really works and works well
Very cheap - 10 bucks with 3 dollar refills seem to last about 3 weeks
Attracts and kills lots of flies quickly
It smells horrible so best place is outdoors near house entries

Work well, they should sell replacement bottles with caps though. Still have to clean out bottle after emptying, over the smell & can`t eat that much peanut butter.
At $10 plus each they are not a throw away item.

Questions & Answers
I wonder if the formula has changed I’ve used the fly traps in the past with success but lately after three days the liquid turns black and doesn’t attract many flies it doesn’t smell as strong I will be looking for an alternative if this continues as I feel I must wasting time and money
Are you actually using the (Enviro) safe Brand of refills as I once purchased ,I think it was the Buzz Brand Disposable fly trap and found it didn't seem to work as well as the Enviro safe brand . I also pop the lid shut and give a little shake to ensure the liquid is dispersed right up around the neck of the bottle to help attract the flies . Also follow all instructions (EG) use a little hot water to help granules properly dissolve . Hope this helps.
Yes I use enviro safe and as I said it is not performing as well as it used to
Have to agree with you. Original trap and bait worked extremely well. 3 refill pack was different colour . Caught very few flys. Contacted envirosafe, assured nothing had been changed. But its definitely not working like the original.
How do you prevent the maggots from escaping the trap?
I wonder if the trap actually attracts more flys to my property. It works great and have got rid of thousands of flys but it really stinks and I don’t recommend hanging it close to your house.

What reviewers thought
The product is very effective at catching flies so much so that it has to be emptied every week as it’s full of flies. It can be smelly when emptying, however, and the disposal method can cause problems as it can create a new breeding ground for flies.
