is a new and improved fly catching device that does not require the active participation of the user, or any chemicals or pollutants that might cause harm to the user, their pets, or livestock. The FlyCatch-r is designed to attract flies such as Greenhead flies, Horseflies, Black Flies, Deer Flies, Yellow Flies and other Biting flies, which are known to fly low to the ground and fly upwards to attack and bite livestock and humans from below.
Conventional methods of biting fly control, such as those used for mosquitoes, house flies and barn flies are either environmentally undesirable or economically impractical. Both adults and larvae of biting flies are large in comparison to other, non-target organisms. Generally, more insecticide is needed to kill larger insects. The higher concentrations or greater amounts of toxic materials needed to obtain control have undesirable effects on other insects, animals and the environment.
Fly Traps were developed originally to measure fly populations. The fly traps capture large numbers of blood-seeking flies. When these fly traps are located at the edge of a marsh or in adjacent uplands where biting flies concentrate, they serve as an outstanding option to control the biting fly population. When multiple flycatch-r's are used a marked reduction in biting fly population results.
After several years of refinement in the Flycatch-r design as well as the study of optimal trap location, our Flycatch-r's will capture flies in numbers great enough to decrease and kill off your biting fly problem. With continual removal of large numbers of biting flies over several seasons you will see a significant reduction in the total fly population.
