We bought these traps a few weeks ago after we brought all our flower pots from the front porch inside for the winter and had a lot of these little fruit flies in our plants.In just a few minutes several fruit flies tuck to the stick surface.These traps are very effective and they also look good. We replaced them about once the week and after three weeks we had no more bucks in the plants. Problem solved.I would definitely buy these traps again.
The pictures show how well it works. The first is right by a plant and the second is hanging from the light.
We are battling soil gnats like crazy, tried an insecticide and neem oil, along with the zevo flying insect trap plug ins and ACV traps. Still gnatty. These little guys have cut down on the amount of gnats I catch flying around. They won’t take care of your problem at the root, literally, gotta kill all the gnat larvae in the soil, but they help immensely. My one qualm is the thickness of the plastic. They are slightly flimsy and that can make it hard to get them into the soil but it came with a mini shovel that I suppose is to help. It was cute. Lol.
Today, the tide turns in my favor. They were many. They were persistent. But it is the begging of the end. They cannot escape now.Leaves have been lost. Flowers have withered. But on the horizon, a yellow sticky sun is shining.I am victorious.
I should buy the sticky traps earlier. Since I brought my plants inside last fall, the problem with the fungus gnats started. We had soooo many little flies everywhere in the house. I tried everything else but no result. Finally, I got these yellow traps, and they worked their magic. Also, I stopped watering the plants until the soil was completely dry and then I used hydrogen peroxide 3%. Mix 1 part hydrogen peroxide with 4 parts water and pour it through the soil at the root zone until it begins to come out of the base of the pot. They say that hydrogen peroxide kills fungus gnat larvae on contact.
This has to have been one of my best purchases, last year. I bought a bad pack of potting soil which seemed to be infested with fungus gnat larvae - I have never had this problem with other house plants before. They multiplied prolifically. Beer, apple cider vinegar traps, etc. nothing worked. I left the problem plant pots out in freezing cold weather to see if that would do the trick, also in vain.The positioning/placement is really important, see where the gnats are, which plant pots they congregate in; put the arrow shaped end in the soil, you can then carefully pull off the cover from where it connects in the middle - which is easier than trying to remove from the edges first - the edges seem to catch the most critters, so you don’t want to inadvertently remove any of the stickiness. I found a slightly downward facing of 80-85 degree to the ground seemed to be most effective. I feel like that was way much information! ... But position a few close together for good results.
I, unfortunately, came to the realization I had a fungus gnat problem in some of my house plants. Being a relatively new houseplant mom, I didn't really know what to do. I didn't want to use chemicals or harsh insecticides on my indoor plants, and after doing some research, found these little things! They are not pretty per-say, but they do the job. Catching the adult gnats slows down the reproduction of new ones hatching because they aren't able to lay more eggs in the soil. This doesn't prevent ones from still hatching, but it does slow down the process and I have seen a significant difference. I change these out about once a week!
Helped with fungus gnats for my Indoor plants. Would even catch and stick flies easily. Super super sticky so be careful they will stick to your sleeves AND THE PLANT LEAVES BE CAREFUL! Other than that they are great. Sometimes the white label rips when you peel it off so be gentle and don’t go full hulk mode when you peel them off.
Love everything about these! They’re so easy to use and I love that it has a non-adhesive edge so you can place it without getting the glue all over your hands! The size is great because you can use it for any size pot, including a 2” pot! Definitely an integral part of getting rid of fungus gnats. Would 100% recommend and I will be repurchasing in the future!
Happy I found these things. I originally ordered the 12pk but I bought a portable 5x7' greenhouse and needed more. These sticky traps (as the pictures show) catch a lot of annoying insects. Had this one at the entrance to the greenhouse. I even saw a moth stuck to one of my first order of these traps. Even had an annoying house fly on another one. They may be thin but they catch everything. Would recommend.
Good grief, so simple, wish I had found these ages ago. With the covid issues shutting things down I brought my office plants home and what used to be a manageable bug problem exploded into a major nuisance. I have tried everything over the years, chemicals, repotting, watering from the bottom, and nothing has worked for this long. These sticky buggers are little miracle workers. Have not had bugs for two solid weeks. I added a second sticky before watering a second time, to catch newly hatched bugs, worked like a charm. They are super sticky, gets stuck to everything,
