These work really well! However, it's gross to see after they catch flies. AND if your pets happen to get a hold of them. (One of my cats did more than once.) Then, it's a horrible experience. It sticks to their fur, and you can't take it off easily. The cats are so traumatized after that. Something about flies buzzing on a strip dangling from the ceiling attracts the cats.
I used this in a house I was staying with friends where the flies were unimaginable. I don't like the tacky appearance of ribbons of sticky goop hanging from the wall or ceiling , but it seemed to work at least a little. It seemed simple enough, pull the string and hang, but it's so sticky and goopy and gross that putting it up and taking it off is not very fun.
This product is a life saver. When our back door got left open in the summer, flies got in and decided to have babies. We had flies everywhere and couldn't seem to kill them all. We purchased these and hung them from the walls all around our house. The next morning, almost all the flies were gone. They all stuck to the ribbon.
I do not find this helpful at all. I placed one every where the flies would chill and fly around like the pay rent, and it didnt do anything but bring more flies in. Waste of money and time trying to carefully open it up without touching the gooey part with your fingers... did I mention its super sticky and disgusting?
Really good for caychig those nasty creatures. I don't have fly issues, but my mother in law does. Shenkives in an area where horses and farm animals live close by. Last year, I stayed over for my post partum and she had gazillion flies. So we got this sucker and they got in the trap like mad people... highly recommended.
We have had a rather large group of unwanted guests enter our house this year they were flys and it seemed like they were in every room in the house thanks to the raid fly ribbons we lowered their numbers greatly to almost none existent for less than three dollars definitely recommend this product
