Does not catch the flies by itself.

I hung two of these in different location in the house and it hasn't attracted a single fly in several days.

Too much sticky goo all over the ribbon.

Cons:

* The instructions on the box for how to use this fly paper are ridiculously unhelpful. I have never been able to pull out the ribbon "in a twirling motion," and why exactly do I need to store the thumbtack "in a secured position"? Am I to call up my friends and ask them to set up ambushes in case the fly army comes to steal the thumbtack?

* Even when you do figure out how to use it, it's really kinda clumsy and you'll probably end up with some of the sticky goop on your hands.

Pros:

* The flypaper is coated in a generous amount of very sticky goop that will trap lots of flies.

* The goop is rosin and rubber mixed with an undisclosed but presumably harmless solvent. (Consumer products with truly nasty solvents carry lots of warnings these days, which are notably absent. I'm not sure what the solvent is, but given the absence of a strong smell, I suspect an alcohol, possibly isopropyl.) I wouldn't exactly eat it, but as far as pesticides go, this is not particularly toxic. This means you can safely use it in your kitchen and if somehow a bit of sticky gets on your hands and then you make a sandwich, you won't be poisoning yourself.

* The goop readily dissolves in vegetable oil, so it's actually fairly easy to clean it off your hands: first rub a tbsp of vegetable oil between your hands, then wash them with soap. I bet mineral oil works, too. To be technical, just use any nontoxic, nonvolatile apolar solvent.

This brand has good sticky.

I test by lightly putting my finger briefly to an installed strip and see if it sticks as I pull it away. Some brands don't or they are shipping old and dry ribbons BUT this one is a good one. I hang two next to a light bulb in the utility room and leave the light on at night to catch anything that flew in during the day...

Bought 6 ribbons exactly like this from the dollar tree for of course 1 dollar. They work great if you have any sense and put them where the flys go. they aren't really a problem for me though I bought these to get rid of gnat and the occasional mosquito, Kept them around a bright light fixture in the rooms they're always in and about a month later the thing was covered in them all over. They'll last a while too before the stop being sticky, which is usually a couple month for me but i;ve had some last 6 months to a year, just save yourself the money though and get it at dollar tree.

I was surprised how good it was , the first day I noticed nothing but then the next morning wow , I got some fruit flies they appear from nowhere after big fiesta of fruit , but this worked so well , I need order more just in case , also I made little trick , I cut little bit strawberry and put inside the empty tube after you roll off the tape and it attracted them so much quicker , also rum working so well , once they touch the tape there is not escaping, make sure you don't touch the tabe with hands or anything, in case you do make sure you have a alcohol or citric oil to it as water and soup will not works .

I used both this product and the clear window traps to clear up an infestation in a pet room in about a week. This product is better for clearing the infestation since you get much more surface area for the price. It is as sticky as a tar pit, so I wouldn't place it behind curtains or blinds. The ribbon is unattractive so once the infestation is cleared up, I would go with the clear window traps to get any stragglers.

Was inexpensive way to get rid of all the fruit flies. The string is weak so be careful when pulling it out to hang it up.
