As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)!

And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice container, no stink = no fly's Followed instructions, have it sitting on the ground in the middle of the round pen in full sun and it's only caught a few flies, while a pile of horse dung will have an uncountable number of flies in the same round pen. Have two different traps from local feed store made from recycled soda bottles and these work great. Will buy the drop in refills for soda bottles and use in this container. Huge waste of $.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fly Trap! I bought this product on a whim and I have been very happy with my purchase. After one week of using it I bought 3 more. It has really helped to control the fly population in my barn.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from They do not work at my barn... :((( Hi, I just bought them about a month ago and the flys are so bad on sunny days... I even have one hanging right by my manure pile... It doesn"t work. I followed all the instructions and even remade the solution with the extra solution I purchase... I bought 4 of them and have not even caught 1 fly! lol! Hoping they work soon... Otherwise, I am very disappointed! :(

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Working really well for me I've always used the Farnum's Disposable Fly Relief bags and was hesitant to try something different. I'm glad that I did, because this product is working really well. The first place I hung the fly trap resulted in virtually no activity so after a week I moved the trap. Within hours the trap started to fill with flies. After 2 days, the trap is almost full and I am very happy. So, if the product doesn't work in one spot, move it and see what happens!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Captivator Fly Trap WASTE OF MONEY. I purchased The Captivator Fly Trap July 5, 2009, and I received it the 9th. Quick response by SmartPak. I have a large in ground swimming pool on two side were surrounded by large trees. I had company in from out of state and we had a difficult time enjoying the pool and cooking because of the flies. I got on line and found the Captivator. I followed the instructions and placed them the very day they arrived. They been in place every since and I have a total of about 6 flies. I have tried moving them around without success.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good idea This trap caught a TON of flies, but I'd need a dozen traps to make a difference in my small barn. There are just too many flies for trap solutions to work effectively.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! This works!! My poor horse was being eaten alive by flies - I have never seen them so bad and summer isn't here yet! Several of the other boarders have fly traps, but they have had little impact. I was desperate, so I got fly predators, a garlic supplement and these fly traps. Man, do they work! They are easy to use and very clean. I hung them by our manure pile and within an hour, it was a third full! A few days later it was a solid black fly mass.. completely full! I was nervous to empty it, as I did not want the smell or the dead bodies on me, but I was very surprised that I could just twist off the top and pour the bodies into the manure pile (I buried them!). I left a few bodies in the bottom and added a bit more water and rehung it... it immediately started to catch more! It is awesome and it works well with the predators!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I catch TONS of flies by using the dead flies as attractant. When full, I simply dump out half of the dead flies and add more water. Works much better than the attractant. Still very stinky but WOW does it work. I'm up to 6 of these things now.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent The Captivator Fly Trap is a fabulous product that absolutely works as quickly as you hang it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works immediately This is the easiest and by far the most effective fly product I've ever used. Very easy to set up and starts working right away. I just ordered 4 more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fly Trap - Works I bought two of these for my horse's stall this summer and I was shocked at how well they worked. And they are not messy or gross. Easy to put together. I'll definitely buy them again next summer. Strongly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best I ever had I have had a lot of different kinds of this type fly catchers but this is the best made. I found a place on my porch where the flies seem to like to be and hung it there. In 2 weeks it is almost 1/4 full of dead and dieing flies.
