Bait and use trap outdoors. Remove attractant assembly from inside of trap cone. While holding trap upside down, tear open outside attractant packet. Drop water-soluble attractant pouch into trap. Handle with dry hands or use gloves. Do not open the inside pouch, it will dissolve in water. Add 16 fluid ounces of clean water up to fill line to activate attractant. Agitate lightly to disperse attractant. Slowly turn trap right side up, and hang or set on a flat surface outside in a sunlit area of high fly concentration when flies are active and where odors will not be a problem. For best results, place trap within four feet of the ground. In hot weather (above 90° F), place trap in shade for better results, in cooler weather, place trap in full sun. If placed on ground, be sure that at least ¼ inch of space is available between the trap body and ground so flies can enter. Replace trap when full of flies, or when trap contents dry out. Wash hands with soap and water after handling
I have had this latest one hanging for about a month. It’s crazy how many flies are trapped. When we sat it on the ground we didn’t have much success. Hanging is key for us.
I will say that the smell is horrid as it fills up. Not great at the start either. Just place it away from gathering area and you don’t notice the scent.
It also helps to make sure it’s far from gathering area. You don’t want to attract them to where you’re enjoying your outside areas.
Difficult to hang.

This item works really well, but smells really bad to attract flies. However it is rather heavy and fell and broke because I did not hang it well enough. It collected a whole lot of flies before it fell. It is not very easy to dispose of because of size. I found another type from supermarket that is much lighter and smaller and easy to dispose of so will not be buying another one of these. If you hang it securely and don't mind the large size it is excellent, but because of the aforementioned reasons I would not buy again.
Easy and Effective

So easy to use. Cut open the plastic envelope. Drop the internal packet into the bottom opening of the cone. Do not open the packet, it dissolves in water. Add water to fill line. The packet will break apart when water is added. Turn upside down slowly and place it away from populated areas. I placed one on the edge of our pasture to draw the flies away from our barn. I had a dead fly within 15 minutes of placing the first of three traps. I ordered on a Friday and it was here on Sunday. Super fast shipping even while we are in the middle of the COVID19 pandemic. Happy camper here. Love Chewy for it's great service and effective products!
Didn't catch anything

Smells pretty bad so I thought it would be a winner, I have lots of flies around my chicken feed. The first one I bought came cracked and that smelly stuff got all over me- it was disgusting. Chewy quickly sent a replacement, but no luck catching the flies. They were still all over my chicken feed area rather than in this trap! Ah well, was worth a shot! I liked the idea of it.
Fly trap that work great

I have purchased now 6 of these and have been amazed by how many flies have been captured and killed. This product works great as is very recommended if you have a fly issue.

I keep one hanging at each end of my stalls and replace them each week. Amazing how it helps to cut down on flies! And way less expensive than the ones I was buying from my local feed store.

I was concerned about the mixed reviews, but for $5 I risked it. This little contraption began working immediately! The picture is after about 48 hours. I hung it up on a garden flag holder. Just be forewarned that the mix you put in it stinks to high heaven. I actually accused my dog of rolling in poop because he was near me when I opened it. Don’t get it on your hands. :)
really zero stars

i had previously used a different brand and it caught a zillion flies but smelled dreadful. I was happy to find these which advertised no smell and had good reviews. I followed the instructions and hung it near my compost, away from my house. Not quite smell free but bearable. But did not catch one fly. Not one.
Moved it to another spot, near garbage cans, still no flies caught. Hung it on a fence near the garage. Still no flies caught. Some ants, a moth or two. No flies...
This thing works

The only downside to the extremely effective product is that it takes about a week before the bait smells strong enough to trap the flies. I feel bad about throwing this away, but the hundreds of dead flies are disgusting.
Very easy to use and they work

I placed one of these outside of our pig manure pit. I didn’t even realize how many flies were actually in the area. Only maybe saw a handful at a time but within 3 days the trap was completely full. So ordered 5 more for my other fly problem areas.
