|How it works||Flies enter the trap through the opening at the bottom of the inverted funnel base attracted by the pheromone lure that is kept in the basket hanging inside. Once inside the trap, they remain held by the pheromone attraction and by the light entering through the clear top. When exhausted they fall into the liquid contained in the inverted funnel base where they drown. This liquid consists of water mixed with detergent or insecticide. It can also be substituted by a cotton absorbent wad containing a strongly smelling insecticide.|
