We have a small farm. Pony, goats, chickens, various other animals depending on the year. Pests can be a real pain to say the least. Best fly trap / bait... 10? wide roll of sticky stuff. Freaking works miracles. These have been up 48 hours. No stink, no water, just dead flies.


Hope it helps someone. A9F54E0E-E948-4FFB-B9A4-4BE6123EA64D.jpeg 70E82334-81BF-41CA-8588-8DD0326B45D9.jpeg

If you have tons of gnats try a box fan with window screen on the back. The sound draws them in and the airflow traps them. Spray the screen with denatured or isopropyl alcohol before turning the fan off. Knocks them dead right away. Works great for mosquitos also

Get the yellow sticky cards off Amazon..they will attract and kill
all kinds of gnats.

Most effective way to use them is in concert with a bait of some
type that the gnats re attracted to. Place the bait and then put a
fence of sticky cards around it 2-3" away from the bait.

If you have standing water nearby, that's probably the source.
There is a product you can get called "Mosquito Bits", and you
sprinkle the pellets on the water and it'll kill the gnats while they're
still in larvae form.
