INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:
1. Remove trapping heads and attractant tubes from blister
2.Rinse out a standard one-gallon plastic milk jug or water
jug of the type shown on the front of this card. Use only
transparent type jugs, not opaque or colored jugs.
3. Holding an attractant tube with tip at top, carefully
twist off tip.
DO NOT SQUEEZE TUBE WHILE TWISTING OFF THE TOP
4. Squirt one 30 ml tube of attractant into empty trap jug.
(NOTE: Attractant has a pungent odor; bait trap outdoors.
Wearing plastic gloves while baiting trap is recommended.)
5. Fill the jug half full with clean water, and swirl jug
lightly to disperse
6. Slide cylinder part of trap head into mouth of jug.
7. Place trap on the ground (or hang by jug handle) outdoors
in a sunlit area of high fly concentration when flies are
active and wherever odors will not be a problem. DO NOT
place trap within reach of livestock or pets. For maximum
effectiveness, trap should be within four feet of the
ground. In hot weather (highs above 90° F), trap works
better in the shade. In cooler weather, place trap in a
8. NOTE: The Milk Jugg Fly Trap is not recommended for
indoor use, or for use against biting flies.
1) Trap contents should be agitated at least twice weekly to
thoroughly wet all trapped flies.
2) Add water to the trap jug as necessary to keep the jug
half full of liquid. Do not allow trap to dry out.
3) Remove trap when it is 1/3 or more full of flies. Throw
out jug, or bury trap contents at least 6” deep.
4) Trap head may be reused; bait new jug with one 30 ml tube
or two 15 ml tubes of Farnam Fly Attractant, or one ounce
(two tablespoons) of Farnam Fly Terminator® Attractant and
fill the jug half full of water.
1) In areas of very low fly density, the attractant may
dissipate before enough flies are caught. To continue
attraction when fewer than 50 or so flies are caught within
5 days of baiting, additional attractant should be added.
2) Occasionally, spiders may set up housekeeping in the top
assembly, greatly reducing the trap’s efficiency. If this
occurs, remove top assembly and pull out spiders and webbing
with a twig.
3) Use several traps in different locations. A good trapping
program should supplement proper manure management.
4) If trap does not yield desired results when hanging
overhead, try placing the trap on or closer to the ground.
5) Dead flies make an excellent natural fertilizer. Bury
trap contents at least six inches deep.
6) Never seal dead flies in a closed container. Doing so may
result in a hazardous explosion.
