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)! 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'!).

Why We Love This

The Bite-Lite H-Trap is the newest and most effective horse fly trap on the market today for catching tabanids (also known as greenheads, deer flies, yellow flies, and B-52 bombers). By placing this unique, study trap in a hot, sunny location near your horse paddock, swimming pool, pond, garden, water park, business park, vacation rental, campground, etc., you will start trapping female horse flies who are attracted to the inflated black ball by the infrared signature generated by the heat of the sun. Looking for a blood meal in order to reproduce, the female will try to bite its "victim", and after failing they will fly their typical vertical flight pattern, which in this case is up into the trap’s UV proof plastic collection bin. Each trap covers 2.5 acres or 5 horses.

“IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT EXPECTATIONS: The H-Trap is designed to catch horse flies from the Tabanidae family only and NOT biting stable flies or biting horn flies (family Muscidae). Horse fly eggs and larvae are found in wet, swampy areas. Stable flies and horn fly eggs and larvae are found in fecal matter, urine soaked bedding, or in the wet, decomposing straw found around round hay bales. Another difference is the way these different flies bite. Signs of horse fly bites are trails of blood from the wound that the horse fly leaves after cutting the skin and pumping in a substance that allows the blood to flow. Stable fly and horn fly bites tend to be less bloody, with much smaller ‘dots’ of blood left after feeding. If you are unsure about what type of flies are present on your property, please call us before purchasing an H-Trap. If you have pictures that can help our entomologist identify the flies that are bothering your animals and family, please send them to us by email at orders@bite-lite.com.

Favorite Features

• One of a kind single legged frame and anti-rotation ground anchor for easy mowing.
• Chemical free solution uses nature to trick biting female horse flies to the black ball.
• Research tested and proven to be more effective than other commercial traps.
• Weather resistant design; comes with a 2 year warranty on mechanical parts.

    Bite-Lite H-Trap Professional Horse Fly Control System is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great traps Just received my third Htrap today, two of which was purchased from SmartPak Equine. living on acre of ground next to a salt marsh where green head breed is tough. However these traps work so well and the flies are so bad I'm going to order a fourth trap. They are easy to put up and take down. If you are skeptical go head and buy if you have green heads, deer flies it's an excellent product. Attached is photographs of the contents of a trap after 3 hours of install, see how good it works.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent fly catcher Just received this today 06/26/2017. As I was placing it next to my deck, green head flies were attracted to it that fast. I live next to a national wild life refugee/salt marsh. This is the 2nd. one I have purchased even though I only have an acre of ground, the salt marsh is where the Greenheads breed. I would love to attach a video of the amount of flies I have caught. Excellent product.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not catching bugs I made a biting fly trap based on the Rutgers Univ plans (which this Bite-Lite is loosely based on), and have used it for 2 years on my farm. It works amazingly well. I bought this trap this spring to expand my field coverage, since I was lazy and didn't want to build a second one. I grant you this Bite-Lite trap is really well made -very sturdy. But it has only caught about 2 flies in the course of several weeks, while my homemade trap has caught handfuls of biting flies. The Bite-Lite is too pricey for the ineffective level.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not great It does catch bugs but I was hoping it would catch a lot more
