960 Vector Fruit Fly Traps

The 960 Vector Fruit Fly Trap is a low profile, ready-to-use trap designed to capture Fruit Flies (Drosophila). This versatile trap has a patented food grade attractant that quickly lures attracts several species of fruit flies (melanogaster, repleta, hydei and other species) to the trap. The 960 Vector fruit fly trap is engineered with a 10-hole venting lid to optimize Fruit Fly (Drosophila) exposure to the vapors emitted from the liquid attractant. The trap lid is removable for easy monitoring and identification of catch. There are outer and inner spill resistant rings to reduce accidental loss of the liquid attractant. The trap’s efficacy has been enhanced by using orange colored plastic with a specially selected chemical composition. These features have been shown to significantly improve trap catch.

Drosphilia require very little debris for successful breeding sites. The 960 Fruit Fly Trap is designed to attract adult fruit flies from short distances and , by counting and mapping infestation levels, to pinpoint specific sources of infestation. It has a removable lid that allows for easy monitoring and identification

Benefits of the Vector 960 Fruit Fly Trap

  • Quick attraction and capture of Drosophila
  • Accurate monitoring capability
  • Versatile to use because of its low profile
  • Conveniently ready-to-use
  • Low toxicity with food-grade attractant
  • Does not require EPA registration
  • Economical and saves you time in servicing traps

 

Suggested Placement

  • Traps are most effective when placed near breeding sites. Place behind or under bars, beverage centers, dishwashers, food displays, food service islands, sinks, ovens, supply racks, vending machines, food preparation tables, etc.
  • Avoid placing traps over food preparation areas or exposed food to minimize fruit fly activity and attraction in this area. These areas also have a high degree of human activity, which increases the chance that the trap will be tipped or knocked out of position. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Fruit Flies will gravitate toward decaying food odors so it is important to discard all food peels and food materials to minimize fruit fly activity in production areas.

How To Use 

  • To use, simply tear off the foil seal and attach the 10-hole venting lid onto the base of the trap and it is ready for placement. Be careful not to spill the liquid attractant. For a more secure placement, use the glue dots included in each case. 
  • Place the traps in areas where Fruit Flies have been seen. Place the traps where they will not be disturbed or tipped.  
  • After 30-days, record the catch and dispose of the trap in a garbage receptacle

Temperature Effects and Storage

Liquid will evaporate within 45 days of opening under normal room temperatures. Product may freeze at temperatures below 32° F but will still attract fruit flies once the attractant thaws. Store in a dry, cool place.

Positive
I absentmindedly left a little bit of food in my kitchen sink when I went out of town for a few days. When I got back I had an infestation of fruit flies. I immediately went to the DIY website and easily found the product I needed. It arrived promptly and I set out two traps in my kitchen. Within three days they were completely gone and I haven't seen another one. I couldn't be more pleased.

Seems to Have Worked
Even as it took some time, all the fruit flys are gone. I have not opened the trap to see how many victims were caught./killed.

Apparently, this is a good product that works as advertised. Thanks!

Not impressed
The trap did not attract and kill the fruit flies as described. I tried the first one in several places trying to find one that will work. It's been about a month, and we have 4 dead flies. Not impressed.

*******************
DIY RESPONSE: Sorry these didn't solve your issue. It's possible that you don't have actual fruit flies, but another breed of small fly such as a Drain Fly or Phorid Fly. These traps are only designed to work on fruit flies. For help on fly identification call us at: 1-800-476-3368

fly trap is very effective
Your fly trap is very effective and so are your fruit fly traps which I bought in the past. Thank you for making these available for so much less than Gardener's Supply.
