The way a Horsefly Glue Trap works is simple: biting insects including horseflies hunt using their infrared vision to find warm-blooded prey. The female flies require blood to continue their reproductive cycle. You may have noticed that black horses are bitten more frequently than lighter ones, this is due to the dark colour coat absorbing more light and becoming warmer, which is visible in the infrared vision of the fly. A black plastic object warmed by sunlight, moving in the wind attracts the bloodthirsty female horsefly, by simulating her prey. The fly goes to bite her prey, but will land on the bucket and become stuck in the Sticky Trap Horse Fly Trap Glue. An affordable and simple solution to the biting insect problem in your local area.

Using Sticky Trap horsefly glue in the right way
Our Sticky Trap horsefly glue is used for making the well-known and cheapest horsefly trap made with only a black bucket and a rope. This concept was discovered in Belgium in the summer of 2014 and the horsefly traps are now widely used in retirement homes for horses, riding stables, zoo’s and livestock farms but also at swimming pools, sports fields and campsites, where there are large numbers of horseflies. It has the same features (heat-movement-attraction-catching) as the normal horse fly trap, but its much cheaper and more effective! The system of the old traditional H-trap horsefly trap is simple. Horseflies, hornets, and other biting insects hunt for moving warm blooded animals using infrared vision. The black ball of the flytrap becomes warmer than the surrounding air, and moves in the wind, attracting the biting horsefly. The Horsefly tries to bite the ball and fails, ending up under the funnel, before finally getting caught in the H-trap collection bin. Horsefly Glue Traps have been in use for several years and enjoy better results as the insect is caught in the glue upon landing. The traps are also cheaper and easier to build, and with just a few you can cover a large area. With the Sticky trap budget flytrap, the H-Trap’s ball has been replaced with a black bucket which warms in the sun, and moves in the wind. The outside of the bucket gets brushed with specially designed Sticky Trap Glue. The Horsefly sees the moving black bucket, tries to bite it and gets caught!

How to make the cheapest horsefly trap?
- Drill a hole in the top of the bucket and string a rope through the hole. Run the rope through a metal ring and tie a knot so that the rope cannot go back through the hole. A big and sturdy knot may suffice as well.
- Screw a small hook in the underside of a bar that is approximately 50cm long. Hang the rope that is attached to the bucket on the hook (see picture). The ideal height of the bucket is 100 cm above the ground.
- Mount the bar onto one of the field poles. It’s important that it is placed near vegetation, if possible. It should also catch enough sunlight so that the bucket can get warm.
- The placing has to be in an open area, so that the bucket can move in the wind. Finally apply glue to the outside of the bucket. Wear gloves, it’s called sticky for a reason!
- The bucket should hang outside of the field. If not, your horse will brush against the trap, the flies will stick to your horse not the trap! This will not harm your horse, but it’s certainly not pleasant.
