The best fly catcher.....a little messy disposing of contents, but worth the ordeal...Wear rubber gloves and put in plastic bag and then in empty feed bag that is plastic lined.....and out for garbage....

Better than my old glass gallon jug
So far so good. It is attracting and drowning flies. Have not compared the cost of buying more bait pouches vs the Victor disposable cup unit. Since it is non-toxic, I can dump them in my garden composter.

Very effective
Used only one as a starter and it collected hundreds of flies in several days. Flies still persisted and starting to deploy more containers.

This beats all others
The best device I have used to catch flies. In Wellington, fl. flies are abundant throughout the year. I’ve tried other bait jars and by far this catches more flies faster than any of the others.

Very Effective Even catches mosquitoes and gnats!!!
This product is effective, and works immediately. Although the weather is cool , these traps are already working.--added bonus...they lure and catch mosquitoes. gnats and wasps!!! For fly control, I use Bayer fly bait, Spalding Fly Predators along with this product. These traps were hung along the fenceline at about 4 feet using cable ties to attach to "T" posts. I ordered 12 to start with, (for 50 acres) but need about 6 more. Last year I used the Starbar soft plastic fly trap bag.. My dogs and wild animals ripped the bags. This year I went to the hard plastic jug.About every week, I ride my pastures taking gallon jugs of water and additional attractant to refill the water which has evaporated and/or add attractant. It takes me about an hour to check all. I highly recommend the hard plastic. Its easy: place attractant in jug, fill with water, agitate a little then hang on fence. You will not want these too close to stable as they draw flys and the attractant is stinky.

Flies are a real problem on our farm. These traps kill thousands of flies. I like that the container is re-usable. When it gets full, we just add more attractant and water.

I saw it at a fish market. There were about 8 coolers of fish, and no flies were flying on the coolers.

Already got 2 of these, the flies were jumping in the jar before I could even finish putting it together! It works so great, am buying 2 more.

where do you get the bait for inside the captivator?
Judy S on Jul 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Capitvator comes with an original packet of bait. It is one nasty job emptying a half full jar of dead stinky flies. I put them in a water tight bag and seal. Then I put them in yet another bag. You can buy a package of small packets of attractant from State Line Tack or I have seen them at Tractor Supply. In a pinch, put raw meat, preferably liver. It will rot very quick and produce a very attractive scent for flies. I can't believe how many flies we have caught with three of these captivators. Highly recommend these fly bait jars.
how much water do I add?
A shopper on May 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: On my smaller quart jar traps they have a mark which is about 1/3 filled with water. That is a good figure to go with. 1/3 water - 2/3 air space. The important thing is to keep water in your jar. The water either evaporates or is sucked up by dead flies. I use a narrow neck flower waterer so I don't have to take off the top. Just check every two or three days. These traps are wonderful but you do have to realize that you are only catching house flies. If you have biting stable flies, I have sticky towers which have only been up two days but are showing remarkable catches. I love the captivator around the chicken wagon hung underneath and the horse barn near but not in for the house flies.
Can I hang outside in pasture?
Dawn n on Jul 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, directions say to hang outside in a sunlit area, within 4 feet of the ground. If temperature is ABOVE 90 DEGREES, hang in shade. This is what I had to do, but the flies were clamoring to get in before I'd finished hanging it. You will be pleased with this fly trap!
Would the dead flies be safe to give my chickens?
A shopper on Jun 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The attractant (Pheromones) in it would make me leery of feeding out to my chickens. Mine have accidentally eaten it and have been fine, but if you're eating their eggs, I would give them a withdrawal period before consuming their products afterward. You can make your own attractant using an egg and beer that would probably be a lot safer and still effective. I like the Starbar sticky traps for feeding to my hens. The tacky stuff is tangle tree (sap) so it is safe to use over and over. My hens kick mine around like my horse does her jolly ball or my dog does his slow food feeder. When all the little bodies are picked off, I hang them back up to catch some more flies.
