After Sales is a JOKE - All talk and no action.

published

Have used product previously. Recently purchased (March 2022) and product looked different (darker green) than previously. Did not seem to be as effective. Contacted Envirosafe. They said would send replacement sachets but never did (now 1+ months later). Like I said, all talk no action.

Money Trap

published

Money Trap is what I'd call it. A former mouth breather, I've caught more flies just walking around. On the positive side, flies thanked me for the aesthetic water feature.

Smells so bad but works so well!

published

I have it near my chicken coop which is crazy with flies on hot days.
This is pretty gross and there are occasional rows as to who gets to empty it!
But it works so well; better than anything else I’ve tried.
Awesome!

Absolutely guaranteed to work

published

OMG this works so well. In 3 weeks we half filled the trap. Solid with drowned and dead flies. They just keep coming. They get in and cannot escape.

Only downside is the deathly stench of the liquid that attracts them once it ferments from a vivid green into a pale blue after a few days. . Its really bad so locate the trap away from doors and windows. Ours sits on the bin in the sun for best results. Bring undercover at nightusing the little hook on top.

Safe and no chemicals.

Hold breath when disposing then wash and repeat 2 or 3 weeks.

Great Product

published

Purchased two from Bunnings a week ago. It works too well. I can't help but think we're attracting more flies that we would normally have. Who really knows. Starts to smell unpleasant after a few days of filling up. Think chicken coup.

Didn’t work apart from a few minuscule fruit flies

published

So ineffective - even a fly sauntering next to it - with no other tempting smell sources around - just walked off in the opposite direction.
The four holes in the top at are too small for larger flies.
For me, a total dud despite following the instructions.
From Bunnings - doubt they will refund a used item.
Wonder what the common denominator is in those reviews that are positive?

Effective at catching. However the smell!

published

Very effective catching flies. However, the smell. Even after 4 days, I was planting near it (about 30cm) and it’s repulsive. Can’t imagine it after a week or two. Have thrown it out triple bagged.

Chickens in a happy place

published

It's summer and we have a couple of chickens, this equals flies. I bought four traps ( 2 in a pack)and put two in the chicken run and the other two in different areas of the garden. All have worked perfectly. After a week I simply dig a large hole in the garden and bury the contents, wash the containers in soapy bleach and water, then refill with water and fresh sachets. With the huge number of flies that I'm catching, I'm hoping to reduce the world's population. Just need something as simple and effective for mozzies at night time.

Attracts more flies to the property

published

Works well - too well in fact. I have clouds of flies buzzing around them… and they still come in the house. I think I’m attracting all the flies in the neighbourhood and when I empty them in the green bin, it too gets covered in flies and black fly spots. Yes, the plastic is also flimsy and not lasting more than 1 season - more plastic in landfill as a result.

It's works but not as good as I once thought .

published

Edited from a 4 star to 2 star.

Had it for about a week and it caught 50+ flies, doesn't smell overly bad like others other reviewers have mentioned(edit: yes it does). Not sure if it brings in more flies to the area than what would have been normally here but the results are good (edit: it never seems to reduce the amount of flies I have hanging around but it does catch a lot). Also the bait turned from green to blue one day, not sure what that means though. (Edit: I kind of don’t recommend this product, yes it catches them but it never reduces the overall amount of flies hanging around)

Didn't work at all

published

- didn't catch anything
- stunk out the house (the worse rotten egg smell, and very very strong)
- I think the smell is meant to attract flies, but it doesn't seem to work
- flies and moths continued to fly in my now stinky house
- waste of money and time buying it

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

published

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.
100/100.

No proper information on active ingredients

published

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!

Agreed. It smelled initially, and the smell got worse over time to attach flies

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.
