You ever been to a bbq where everyone is having a great time except for one dude that’s getting attacked by flies? Like swatting wildly at the air and slapping himself? That’s me.
Now Management doesn’t have a problem with flies on me. But if one lands on her hot dog or burger, it’s a problem. And that’s where the flies screwed up. They went and pissed off Management.
Management did some research and bought a Flies Be Gone flytrap for the backyard. This thing doesn’t look like much. But troops in Iraq & Afghanistan used ’em to kill flies, possibly terrorists too.
FBG is a hanging trap that attracts flies through a trap door — which they somehow are not smart enough to fly back out of. According to FBG’s website, once inside flies enjoy a free lunch they’ll remember for the rest of their lives. Think they stole that line from a John Wayne flick.
FBG takes a few minutes to put together. The bait stinks — don’t get it on your hands. Hang it a few feet off the ground in the sunlight. Make sure it’s 30′ or so away from your patio. Each trap lasts about 4 weeks. We’ve had ours up for a few days and already have a dozen confirmed kills.
