    Is anyone using the re-usable fly trap made by Rescue? (www.rescue.com).

    Does that stuff stink or what.

    I use the disposable fly traps and they work wonders.

    Hey there! Go to your local farm supply store and pick up a can of "Golden Malrin" fly bait w/ muscamone fly attractant!!! It kinda looks like blue aquarium gravel... This is great stuff, might want to make sure it is legal in your area, contains some wicked active ingredients, make sure to use as directed. WILL KILL animals, but you can watch flies land, lick, quiver and die by the hundreds. Good luck.

    This year I got the fly preditors & they are great. I got a free sample & we saw a huge difference in our horse barn. Our chicken house is next to our barn & I sprinkled these fly preditors around my chicken house & there are less flys. You put them out at dusk so chickens won't get them. This is the company I ordered from.
