Fly ribbons are items with special patterns that flies are attracted to. They can be used to kill flies by zapping them or by capturing them until they die of thirst. Some fly ribbons also contain poison. Choosing the right fly ribbon will depend on your needs and the environment you’re in.
Fly Ribbons are convenient to use in areas of your home where flies can annoy people and pets. They are also safe to use around pets and children. Because they attract a variety of flying insects, they are an excellent way to get rid of them. They are disposable and last up to 3 months.
Fly paper is another effective fly repellent. Fly paper is made up of a thin sheet of paper that has a sticky surface and a sweet scent. Flies are attracted to this sticky surface and land on the paper. Fly paper is cheap and environmentally friendly. It works by exploiting flies’ keen sense of smell. Fly ribbons emit food-based fragrances or other odors that flies find attractive.
Fly bottles first appeared in the mid-1800s. The original bottle was an onion-shaped glass bottle filled with a sugary liquid and meat. Fly bottles subsequently evolved into more functional versions that were suitable for large-scale use on farms. They were designed to be hung from trees.
