From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Simply place trap at least 10 feet away from barns, houses, gardens, and kennels. For maximum fly control, use in conjunction with the EZ Fly Trap. Individually boxed with an informative brochure. Sticky Fly Trap.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent part of the solution to flies Ohio flies in the months after midsummer are nasty, numerous, and not avoidable for horses living outside for three seasons of the year. After a summer's use, I concluded that the Bite Free traps made an important contribution to the overall picture. They were the one new thing added last summer. I just ordered for the upcoming season. Put out in early June, two traps near each shed area, by early September they had captured a variety of flying insects, but mostly face flies. They're not poisonous, don't require electricity, and don't have to be renewed through the season. Combine the traps with other solutions, including fly predators, mesh masks, Equispot in the worst months, and a spray for ticks (but effective on flies, too). It may seem like overkill, but the flies breed prolifically and bite viciously. One important caution: be sure to hang these traps in full sun: a trap under a tree caught half a dozen Monarch butterflies in the first week of hanging, and none after it was moved into full sun.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely helps with fly control! I've used these traps every summer for a few years now and find that they trap a lot of flies very quickly. I use baling twine to hang a couple of traps on the sunny side of the barn where the flies bother the horses. I put them at about 1-2 feet off the ground, and I can move them around easily or take them inside if needed, especially at night or if it's raining.I think that timing and location are really important for these traps. They're specifically for the biting stable flies that bite around the horses' legs. In my area, these flies usually come out around July or August.The traps are very sticky, and you have to be careful when taking them out of the box or setting them down next to anything. I also keep the original box to store and dispose them in.Once the edges of the traps are filled with flies, I do find that they don't trap as well anymore. Depending on the fly population, sometimes one trap is only good for a week or two which can get quite expensive over the summer. But it makes me very happy to see a lot of dead flies on the trap and not biting my horses!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Bought this about a few weeks ago and is working well, capturing the mature flys and other flying pests. Have not tried to hose it off yet, but it's definitely doing it's job.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This trap caught everything but flies. It caught lizards, lady bugs, dragon flies. I saved the lizards and a dragon flie before discarding the 2 I purchased.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not recommend I hung this near the manure pile, in the sunlight, about 3 feet off the ground, and about 50 feet away from the barn. I thought I followed the instructions precisely but it's been hanging there a week, and all that's in it is tons of wind blown debris (leaves, grass, pollen), a few gnats, some bees, and various beetles. Not one single fly. And yes the flies are out in full force! Total waste of money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from good bye stable flies This is my second year using this product. Can't imagine spending a summer without it. This trap makes my horses stomp and twitch much less.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from You Can't Buy Just One I pride myself in keeping a fly-free barn, and these traps are definately an asset; I keep one or two in a sunny spot by both barn doors. I find they work much better than those with an added attractant. The flies seem to love the shiny surface, and they land on it in droves the moment it's set out and can't get unstuck. Because these are lightweight and easily blown over, my husband attached them to a stand (such as a former tank heater) for stability, which works great! The traps are pretty full within 2-3 weeks, and then it's time for a new one.

    Ever since I was the girl with 1,000 breyer horses and the raggity braid in her hair, I was always obsessed. In second grade I moved into a town with a barn right down the street, which is when I started taking lessons...
