    The Star Bar Fly Terminator Trap is an effective, insecticide-free fly trap that attracts and kills thousands of flies. Each trap includes a 4 oz. bottle of attractant that contains feeding stimulants plus a sex attractant flies can't resist.

  • Can be used around pets or livestock
  • Durable, break-resistant bottle lasts all season
  • 1 gallon capacity

    Instructions for Use:

    1. No meat or fish is required to bait Fly Terminator Fly Trap.
    2. IMPORTANT: Shake Attractant Well - Attractants settle to the bottom during storage.
    3. Pour 30 ml (2 tablespoons or 1 oz.) of attractant concentrate gel into Fly Terminator' jug.
    4. Fill jug one-third to one-half full with water.
    5. Agitate lightly to disperse attractant.
    6. Screw top assembly onto jug.
    7. Place trap outside on the ground in a sunlit area of high fly concentration when flies are active and wherever odors will not be a problem.


  • Attractant concentrate gel has a pungent odor. We recommend baiting the trap outdoors in a well-ventilated area.
  • DO NOT place trap within reach of livestock.
  • If high winds are a problem, trap may be hung by the hole in the handle (a piece of baling wire works well for this).
  • For maximum effectiveness, trap must be within four feet of the ground.
  • In hot weather, (above 85 degrees F), trap works better in shade.
  • In cooler weather, place trap in a sunny location.
  • The Fly Terminator 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 as necessary to keep the fluid level near the fill level or within 72 inch below the surface of trapped flies. Do not allow trap to dry out.
    3. Without adequate agitation, fly larvae (maggots) may appear as a layer of dry flies in the trap. If this occurs, add one teaspoon of liquid dish soap and enough water to completely cover all flies (about 1/2 to 2/3 full), agitate, let stand for 24 hours and lower fluid level back to the fill level.
    4. When the jug is about 2/3 full of dead flies, empty, clean trap, and rebait with fresh attractant.

    Helpful Hints:

    1. In areas of very low fly density, Fly Terminator Fly Trap Attractant may dissipate before a sufficient number of flies are caught. To continue attraction when fewer than 50 or so flies are caught within five days of baiting, additional attractant should be added to prolong effectiveness.
    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 a light breeze is normal in the spot where the trap is to be placed, the trap will catch more flies if it is set two to three feet off the ground. Hanging the trap overhead may greatly reduce catch.
    5. If maggots become a problem and dish soap is not effective in controlling them, pour three tablespoons of vegetable oil into the trap, agitate and let stand overnight, then empty and rebait trap.
    6. Dead flies make an excellent natural fertilizer. Bury trap contents at least six inches deep.
    7. Never seal dead flies in a closed container. Doing so may result in a hazardous explosion.
    8. In areas having exceptionally hard water, using distilled or purified water may improve trap performance.
