    Enviro powder works better

    •  

      I disagree, I recently have tried out both and found this one to have attracted more flies.

      Both stink pretty bad though. :(

      •  

        I'm also voting for this one compared to the ENvirosafe, in my experience.

        I've also found that sticky fly papers work quite well. The ones at Bunnings are white, although I have had better success with the darker coloured paper.

    Flies definitely love it. And they are very effective catchers of flies. But I'm yet to figure out where to effectively place these, as they really stink, and just seem to attract more flies to the area. So I'm not sure how good they are at reducing the amount of flies in a given area.
    I had 2 around my place, and both got filled with flies within a few days and had to be emptied (which is a gross process!). But the general area around the catcher was constantly buzzing with flies (way more than usual).

      Yup, it's really disgusting. I wish I had an oxygen tank and a regulator to breathe while disposing the waste.

    Better bargain - do it yourself using household scraps.

    See the following links, but note the first one stated that vinegar will stop it from killing bees, so please be kind to them!

      Will have to give these a go and save $$$$$$$
      Thanks rygle :)

      Can vouch that a few vegie + meat scraps works a treat inside a modified plastic bottle. As others have pointed out it reeks, and quickly turns into something resembling a science experiment, so best to leave away from high traffic areas or frequently open windows.

    That stuff smells so bad that it wouldn't matter if it didn't work because humans will leave the area as well :-D

  •  

    Dammit. I just stocked up at full price 2 months ago.

  •  

    Is there anything that deters flies affectively instead of attracting them to the area?

    Fly attractant… Is it just me or does that seem counter productive

    • +1 vote

      I put them near the rubbish bins which are located away from outdoor living area to attract the flies there and I also spray / wipe clove essence on the outdoor furnitures as flies hate the smell

      •  

        Don't tend to gather around the bin so I'll leave the flies to their fly business round there.
        Definitely give this clove essence a crack though

      It's only useful in areas where you're going to get flies. Say if your back veranda or pool area are prone to flies. If you put one of these about 10m away, they are more likely to go there than onto your food. For a one off use like this (think like a mozzie coil), and emptying it before it gets full (and super stinky!) they're OK. But yeah otherwise, it's like you say, you're just attracting more flies to die and stink in the one spot.
