Big Stinky Fly Trap
"We love our Big Stinky Fly Trap. It uses a special scent to draw flies into a 1-gal. plastic jug, where they die. It fills up once a week."
That's what Leonard Dicke, Sheridan, Ill., said in the last issue of FARM SHOW (Vol. 11, No. 5) when he nominated his Big Stinky Fly Trap as "best buy". Because he seemed so happy with the fly-killing trap, we decided to track it down.
The trap consists simply of a plastic 1-gal. jug fitted with a large plastic top with small holes in it. To get it "started", you mix a bit of the special egg insecticide fluid supplied with the trap with some lean meat or fish and put it inside the trap. The scent of the concoction attracts flies who enter through the one-way blackened ducts and get trapped inside. The dying female flies, who were attracted to the rotting meat to lay eggs, give off a female scent that attracts male flies. As the dead flies rot, they attract more flies. The control fluid kills the thousands of eggs the flies lay in the trap. Once full, you empty the trap except for a few dead ones that keep the attractant cycle going
The Big Stinky Fly Trap sells for $18.50, including a 6 oz. bottle of control fluid.
