Q.Will the trap still be effective, if I put it on the ground 20 feet away from the sitting area in our backyard, instead of hanging it right over the sitting area? Reason I ask, is that we had it hanging right by the sitting area, and even though the trap is very effective, it also attract flies to it, smells bad and can be a bit of an eye-sore during parties. Thanks in advance!
A.

This trap can be placed up to 30 feet away from your home, allowing the trap to draw the flies away from your sitting area.  The trap will be able to attract flies at a higher position, however, for best results, we recommend placing the trap 18" or less from the ground, and in a sunny area.

Q.Will this catch horseflies
A.

This product is not recommended for catching horse flies.

Q.Are these plastic "jars"? I've had trouble with the plastic breaking. Does the lid fit on a regular quart canning jar and can I buy just lids?
A.

This container is plastic. We apologize as the lids are not interchangeable with different containers.

Q.This product has been very effective at catching flies. However, none of the flies seem to be submerged in the water. They are stuck inside the container but not submerged. Am I doing something wrong? It seems like submersion is important in order for them to actually die so I can dump them.
A.

Once the flies have entered the trap, they will eventually suffocate and die. It is important to keep the bait moist by adding water to the trap regularly.

Q.I have outdoor trash cans that attract flies. How close should the trap be placed to this area? Also dogs and varmints have access to this area. Is the trap still effective if placed above their reach?
A.

We recommend placing this trap 10-30 feet away from the home. The trap will be able to attract flies at a higher position, however, for best results, we recommend placing the trap 18" or less from the ground.
