Great product

published

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.

Purchased in December 2019 at Bunnings Warehouse for $10.00.

Excellent for semi-rural areas

published

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

published

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

Replacement Bottles

published

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.

Purchased in September 2017 at Bunnings for $10.00.

Fantastic product but why did you scrimp on enviro safe fly trap bottle

published

To whom is interested the product is wonderful.
But they have gone cheap in the container it is that weak it collapses after 3 uses. Go back to old plastic.

December 26th 2019 Update: Attention cheap plastic bottle and product doesn't work as good

To all concerned I was sold on this product but about 10 months ago the plastic bottle is cheap and flimsy. But the worst is the product is no where near as good as it once was. PEOPLE use this and let the company know to go back to the bottles and product that they once used. NOT HAPPY JAN.

Works well but what about the maggots!

published

Very easy to set up. The liquid can smell a little if indoors. Concept works very well attracting the flies into the container. BUT after the 2nd day, I noticed a lot of baby maggots crawling on the inside of the container above the liquid line of the container. I noticed the flies can stay alive inside the trap until, they fall into the liquid. I guess this gives a chance to lay eggs.

Hazardous

This a deadly product false advertising it has caused my pug and golden retriever to fight for their life blood in their Diarrhea and extreme vomiting you say it is poison free but it is salmonella in a bottle I’m so cross worried and sad my dogs are everything to our family they are our babies. I’m telling everyone how dangerous this is


Good but

published

The smell is a bit overpowering. There has still been a few flys around but not half as many and it does catch a lot! I’m scared to empty it as it’s only been a week and it’s only a quarter full, I put two out. 10m2 yard. As for catching “Aussie” flies it definetly does.

Works really well

published

Easy set up and catching flies really well. Cettan feeling of satisfaction! Yes the emptying is smelly but totally worth it. Debating whether to buy a couple more. Currently have 1 large and 1 small

Works extremely well

Fantastic little device, but I warn you now. Block your nose when you empty it ;) It gets very smelly after a few days and you most likely have to change the mix.

Replacement attractants are ineffective

published

I had a huge problem with flies entering our house and in desperation tried the Envirosafe Fly Trap. Worked so well that initially we were emptying dead flies almost daily. You can also buy replacement attractants which we did, these must be weaker as they worked poorly.

Amazing fly trap

published

We’ve installed 10+ Envirosafe fly traps around our property located near Thredbo. Marchflys and normal Fly’s are out of control in the area and the traps have virtually cleared out all the fly’s in four days since setting the traps. See photos of working trap attached.

Omg. This is so Good!!

published

Within minutes we had flies galore inside. Needless to say, we had to empty and refill within days. It was so full. We used the containers for a control test using other ideas on the web. ( prawns etc) Nothing works as well as the sachet of green goo supplied.


If I can post the picture. You will see. It really work

published

This is awesome product. Even though I m not follow the directions (I use normal tap water instead of lukewarm) but it still works very well. And this is not a summer yet. I saw nearly full bottle of flies and just thinking what if all those invade my house. Thanks envirosafe.

clean out trap with soapy water thouroughly before refilling

published

hi just to clarify
i was incorrect about the formula not working. I have contacted the manufacturers and there was no change in the formula.

it appears that not fully cleaning out the bait trap before reuse can cause the forumla to not work.

i will try to update my review to 5 stars

I have one of these, but am worried that my native bees are being trapped. Would they be interested in these?

why would a native bee be attracted to the smell of rotting meat?

Been using them for years and it has never attracted a bee. Only ever seen flies attracted to it.

How soon do joy empty them. What is the best method of disposing of the flies and bait once they are full?

My joint was infested because of the neighbours dairy herd. When it was bad a couple months back, emptied daily, now roughly weekly. I tip it into the compost (home compost not council one). They really stink to attract the flies so if you are going to bin the contents you should double bag it or you are going to gag at the smell of your bin after a few days.

Empty down the toilet works well - wash out in hot water then refill with the refill kit from Bunnings
