I don't understand the people who have trouble with pouring in the liquid. Really??? If you can make a glass of Kool-Aid I think you can manage. Pull the cork out the trap. Mix the powder in warm water (in a separate container), tilt the trap-jar and pour in the warm liquid mix inside, put the cork back in the top. It's not rocket science folks...it just works.
Would recommend this to anyone in an instant!
This is a very pretty design, I like how it looks.
The issues I have with it are thus:
1. The way it works is it has a hole in the bottom, so flies can crawl up inside and get stuck. This is very effective. However, it makes for a messy setup and disposal. The basin for the lure is very shallow, and must be filled to the brim to be effective. So even the slightest movement causes splillage.
2. The lures don't last long. The last trap I had lasted up to a month. This one says "7-14 days". Just around the two week mark (maybe a little over 2 weeks), I noticed it was growing this hairy black and white fuzz inside. Luckily it was easy to clean out with hot water. The cork on top comes out so it flushes right through. Just frustrated me as the lures are almost $10 for a pack of 3.
It caught all my flies (unfortunately probably close to 20 at the time of the first installation) within 1 day. Simply amazing.
tl;dr EXTREMELY effective, but spills easily and doesn't last as long as I'd like.
It's pretty, but that's about where the good points end.
This trap is an inverted version of the familiar cone trap. The hole in the bottom of my trap is drilled off center and therefore won't hold the specified 1/4c of lure without spilling everywhere. The lure smells and looks like yeast and doesn't seem to be anywhere near effective.
Here is a comparison photo. These traps were left in the same 100 square feet together for 12 hours. There is one, single fly in the Springstar trap. The Beapco traps contain so many flies that new ones can't drown in the liquid.
I will update if conditions change, or after I change the lure to the same mixture in the Beapco traps.
I bought this trap for my office cafeteria. Some trash cans were left over a weekend and then we had a huge Fruit Fly problem.
This trap is easy enough to set-up. The "Bait" lasted 3 weeks before the glass container was filled with a few hundred Fruit Flies. Rinsed it out and set it up again.
We are now using Cider Vinegar with a few drops of dish soap for Bait. Seems just as effective. Very few Fruit Flies are remaining.
I will be buying a few more of these for the guys at work.
