If you're looking for something to really make a difference for your animals this year, look no further than Ranch Fly Trap, they really do work amazingly. Thanks on behalf my cattle!
Looking for instructions on setting up your trap? You came to the right place! Special thank you to Maureen Moon , happy customer & user of The Ranch Fly Trap, for making this instructional video!
The hanging location of your Ranch Fly Trap is important to get right and may take a couple of different attempts before you hit that ''sweet spot'' where flies are much more attracted to your net rather than your animal(s).
We recommend placing your Fly Traps in sunlit areas where they are in the sun and in a warm area for a good few hours of the day. We do not recommend putting your trap(s) inside your horses actual stable because it may see the trap as a feeder and will destroy it or eat the contents! We'd suggest instead that you place the traps around fences near paddocks or fields where your horse may be grazing for long hours on a hot summers day. Poop carts, manure piles, just outside the stables, barn, etc. are also advisory places where you'll find success with having a trap set up.
DO NOT HANG above 5ft, the majority of the flies are lower than this, so you need to make sure your trap is on the same level to have the best effect. It's vital that you hang on the same level / if not lower than your animals that you keep whether that be horses, chickens or live stock.
Once you find a location on your ranch that you think has a heavy population of flies, you'll need to bait your trap with a tasty, smelly snack to attract the flies away from your animals into the net. We'll run through some of the main baits our customers have had success with in the past:
Please Note: If the trap is left in the sun for a few days then the bait will inevitably start to become dry and less appealing to flies, so make sure you top it up every now and then! (You can just pour a little beer or water inside the dish if the contents has become dry to make it fresh again)
