These Sagebrush Company metal fly traps used in agriculture, food processing, livestock operations, waste management, horse ranches, recreation, and home. The traps are of the cone style type or modifications of this basic design. The operation of these traps is a simple process.
In mountainous regions good results catching flies have been observed baiting with salami peels, spoiled shrimp, and canned mackerel. Yellowjackets (sometimes called meat bees) are an easy catch when baiting with meat scraps, chicken bones, or cat food.
Catching flies in the presence of horses or livestock usually requires using commercial baits, such as our Fly Trap Bait. Commercial baits may need to be replaced every 4-6 weeks or so depending on the climate. Baits work best when moist because water mixed with a bait concentrate can produce a large vapor plume.
