Terro Fruit Fly Trap Review and Giveaway



I hate fruit flies.  Who doesn't really?  They are pesky, annoying, not to mention disgusting little things that land on my food spreading God knows how many germs.  They have been bugging me more than ever now that I am on the Nutrisystem program because having lots of fresh fruits and vegetables in stock on hand is an absolute necessity.  Thankfully through the Family Review Network I was able to get my hands on the Terro Fruit Fly Trap for review.  The day that the Terro Fruit Fly Trap arrived, I was more than ready to stick it to those nasty little suckers.

About the Terro Fruit Fly Trap (taken from the press release)


About TERRO

TERRO® is the industry leader in ant control and has been a trusted brand in pest control products for more than 90 years. Based in St. Louis, Missouri, the company offers proven ant and pest control products, including liquid ant baits, aerosol sprays, perimeter granules and ant dust products.

“TERRO Fruit Fly Traps are designed to lure adult fruit flies, using a special non-toxic food-based liquid lure,” says Stew Clark, technical director for TERRO pest control products. “Flies that enter the trap can't escape to continue breeding.” 

New TERRO Fruit Fly Traps not only get rid of fruit flies, they are environmentally safe and the apple-shaped trap looks right at home in any kitchen.




 The Terro Fruit Fly Trap has three simple steps to follow to get it working ASAP for you.  First you must open the yellow lid on the top of the apple shaped trap.  Then squirt all of the food based, non-toxic liquid lure into the trap.  Set the trap near common breeding areas like a bowl of unrefrigerated fruit or a garbage.  Voila!  Done.  Just wait for the fruit flies to meet their doom.


The solution will last for a total of thirty days at which point you can dispose of the trap and replace it with a new one. Watch the informative video below that showcases how the Terro Fruit Fly Trap works.



The Review


The day I received the Terro Fruit Fly Trap I immediately put it use.  The set up was quick and simple and within hours fruit flies were flocking to the trap.  I had a mixture of feelings about this.  On one hand I thought it was so cool how quickly it worked and I was amazed to see the flies just conglomerating on the faux apple.  Then on the other hand I was super disgusted when I realized how many flies were actually taking over my kitchen.  Blech!


Here are some pictures of the flies hanging out on the trap shortly after I set it up.

There are seven flies in this pic by my count - that you can see!

Within two weeks check out what is sitting inside the trap at the bottom

By my count it seems like there are anywhere between 45-50 flies in the trap

By the third week it seems that its not attracting the flies like it used to.  Which is a good thing in my opinion.  I hardly ever see fruit flies any more which I have taken to mean that because the adult flies are dead that I have stopped them from breeding.  Don't get me wrong I will still see an occasional fly or two but that's it.  I definitely don't see them in the swarms that it seemed was flocking to my fruit on the counter.  In my opinion the Terro Fruit Fly Trap works as well as it claims to and I am happy to be rid of those disgusting little flies!


Buy It!

The traps retail for about $8.99 and can be purchased on line at www.terro.com.  Or contact Terro at 1-800-837-7644 for the location of a store near you.

I would like to try the multipurpose insect bait. We have a parrot and there is a pesky little bug that loves birdseed. No matter how clean and tidy the cage is kept, there comes a time when you open a seed container and a dang bug has hatched and promptly flies out. We go thru chasing down and eliminating these bugs acouple times a year and would appreciate anything that works.
