UPDATE: In this review I linked "Fast Orange" for cleanup. That was based directly on the FLA professor's opinion. Experience has taught me that old-fashioned GOJO or Permatex 01013 DL Blue Label Cream Hand Cleaner, 14 oz. is actually much better. I use the product in the link, from AutoZone for $1.99. Use rubber gloves, smear it on, leave it for a while, smear it some more and put dish detergent on it, smear more and rinse. Completely non-sticky and ready to re-coat after it dries. I can't attest to the environmental-friendliness of one cleaner vs. the other, though.

UPDATE2: I forgot to mention: as the weather got warmer, the deer flies got more numerous and more aggressive. My current record is 220+ deer flies caught on one morning walk. Now I wish I had a pic. They were too many to count them all accurately, so I counted the flies on one side of the ridge in my helmet and multiplied by 2. Theoretically, that was 248, but I just call it 220+, because it wasn't a fly-for-fly count.

When I was a kid we used to call them "sand flies", but now I understand that was very local to the area where I lived. Sand flies are generally midges and no-see-ums.

Anyway, deer flies have always seemed to have a special fondness for me. Now I know that's because I was a few inches taller, and a little more active than the people I was tromping through the woods with.

A couple months ago, my daughter and I started having these walk-run dates, twice a week, at Magnolia Plantation, which is a beautiful historic site outside of Charleston, SC. When we started, it was still rather cool, and there were no problems.

We live in an area where we are swarmed with deer flies every year! Literally you will have 10-15 bouncing off your head at one time. You can't enjoy the nice weather in the spring! So, i searched and found a solution. As strange as it sounds, it is a blue cup attached to a hat with the Tangle Foot all over it. My husband was outside mowing for one hour and had around 30-40 stuck to the cup! Yes, it is the grossest thing ever! But, it is so satisfying, in a disturbing way, to have one of those nasty things flying around your head....buzz, buzz, buzz...stuck!! The worst thing is if it is buzzing on the hat! But, if you have this problem, you know what i am talking about! Deer flies BITE! and hurt, then itch. The cup also attracts black flies, an added bonus. The only thing is DON'T get this on your fingers! it is sticky! It lasts a really long time on the hat or whatever you put it on. We've accidently left the hats outside in the sun, wind, rain, and they are still sticky! Wonderful product! Too bad it isn't sold in stores around here, with shipping it was brutal!!!!! But, worth the price to have some peace in our yard. We do wonder what the neighbors think though.... If you want to know how to make the hat, we did it this way: and old baseball hat, a blue (has to be BLUE) solo cup or painted small flower pot, twisty ties, and a paper hole puncher. Make holes in the hat, two horizontal ones to stick the twisty ties through; holes around the cup; set the cup on the hat; line up the holes; stick the twisty tie up through the bottom of the hat through the hole in the cup; tie on; cover with Tangle Foot and you are GOOD TO GO! When you want to take the cup off.... CUT the twist ties and have it in a bag or over the trash. Try not to get the Tangle Foot on the hat! And watch low trees when mowing!

I have a greenhouse and aphids are often inevitable. Just take a few large yellow drinking cups and coat them with Tangle-Trap. Then place near the infestation and they will be covered with adult aphids in no time. And once they land, there is no getting away [you can witness it yourself]. I prefer it over chemical pesticides. Tangle-Trap works!

Here is how I used this to defeat the Deer Fly that plagues us here in the Adirondacks. You can find out more via this post at my forum here:

This is bar none, the best way to keep Deer Flies from biting you.

I used it in combination with a hard hat I bought on Amazon here:

I tried everything I could think of to keep the ants out of my hummingfood feeder. I tried vasoline on the wire, made a cinnamon trap, and tried double sided tape on the wire. Nothing worked. Then I read about tanglefoot on the internet. I put it on the wire and viola!! No more ants. I have recommended it to others. Charlotte Keck, Berlin WI.

My herb garden has been plagued for years with leafhoppers & whiteflies; I've always lived with it but this this year's mild winter has been a bonanza for leafhoppers. I avoid using pesticides in the garden and have tried non-toxic methods like petroleum jelly on yellow plastic cups with so-so results. The petroleum jelly worked ok for whiteflies but the leafhoppers were able to escape easily. I have also tried Neem oil but that wasn't effective as well. Then while desperately looking for a solution, I came across a youtube video showing Tanglefoot being used on a huge home-made plastic hand-held paddle that trapped tons of white flies - what a sight, lol.

So, I decided to give this a try. I bought some wax coated yellow (leafhoppers & whitflies love yellow) paper plates from the dollar store, taped the back of the plates to long, sturdy sticks that I could stick in the dirt, and coated the front with Tanglefoot. I stuck one plate one near my marjoram, brushed my hand though the leaves and the leafhoppers flew straight onto my trap! Within minutes the trap was filled with leafhoppers. Now I have several traps all over my herb garden with dead leafhoppers & gnats. I cannot believe how effective this stuff is.. love it.
