The Fly Cage will attract flies that are within sight of the trap itself. Our rule of thumb is that one Fly Cage will cover one ½ acre. For larger properties we recommend multiple Fly Cage for optimum effect.
The Fly Cage should be placed in open areas where the flies can see the target from all directions. If used around livestock , then place the Fly Cage near the pasture or barn. Great places around your home are any swimming pool areas or sunny places next to shaded areas, and any place of outdoor activity. Each yard is different, so you may want to experiment with the best location in your own yard.
The Fly Cage is built using premium grade materials. We carefully designed this unit to be easy to set up, require very little maintenance (cleaning out dead flies once per year) and last for years with proper care. The skeleton of the Fly Cage is made of powder coated aluminum, similar to the pop up tents, and we used marine grade fabrics. With proper care, the Fly Cage can last for many years.
The Fly Cage can hold many pounds of dehydrated flies at a time. Periodic or yearly emptying of the dead flies is recommended. Also, to keep the trap working for many years, please spray WD40 or other oils on all the push buttons and mechanical parts. Winter Storage is recommended.
Horse flies, Deer flies, Yellow flies, and Green Heads, are attracted to CO2 and heat, which is why they are attracted to humans. These types of flies are also visual hunters. The Fly Cage utilizes visual motion to attract the flies by suspending the black lure below the cage. Flies go straight to the target flying upward into the cage and once caught, dehydrate.
