The fruit fly, one of the smallest flies found in homes, is also one of the most annoying. A familiar problem for most homeowners, fruit flies are commonly spotted swarming around kitchen fruit bowls and near garbage storage areas. TERRO, an industry leader in DIY pest control products, is making it easy to get rid of these pests with their fast-acting, ready-to-use Fruit Fly Trap. The non-toxic trap not only eliminates fruit flies, the apple-shaped trap looks right at home in any kitchen.
TERRO Fruit Fly Traps are designed to lure adult fruit flies, using a special non-toxic food-based liquid lure. Flies that enter the trap can't escape to continue breeding and multiplying.”
Fruit fly populations tend to be greatest in late summer and early fall as they infest fruits during the harvest season. The key to successful elimination of fruit flies is to locate their breeding source and place the TERRO Fruit Fly trap nearby. Look for fruit fly sources in areas where unrefrigerated fruits and vegetables are stored, near garbage cans and recycling bins.
All stages of a fruit fly infestation depend on moist organic debris to complete the fruit fly life cycle. The non-toxic acetic acid found in the TERRO Fruit Fly Trap lures the flies to the traps and eliminates the infestation. Within a few days of placing the trap near a breeding source, you will see a significant decrease in the number of fruit flies.
This summer was a bad year for fruit flies and gnats. I never really had an issue with these bugs until this year. My kitchen and bathroom seemed to be the two rooms that were infested. I tried to make sure the rooms stayed dry but the bathroom would get steamy from they shower even with the vent on. In the kitchen we didn't leave food out and we kept up on the dishes but the darn fruit flies and gnats just wouldn't go away. I was starting to feel the icky factor over these bugs and was feeling defeated. Then I was offered a chance to review two of these TERRO Fruit Fly Traps. As soon as the package came I put one of these out in my kitchen and within a few hours the trap had trapped a bunch of fruit flies and gnats, that it looked like someone sprinkled pepper into the trap. After a few days we noticed that the fruit flies and gnats were almost gone. We left for a few days and came home to not seeing but one or two of the bugs here and there. I am very happy at how the TERRO Fruit Fly Trap works. I have cats and I didn't want anything that they could get into that might harm them. I found a safe product that works in the TERRO Fruit Fly Trap. I am happy to say I can leave food out without the fear of flies getting into it.

Living in Southern CA, termites are a big problem…I’d like to try this product: TERRO® Carpenter Ant & Termite Killer Aerosol.
I need the TERRO® Wasp & Hornet Killer!!
They classify stink bugs as crawling insects. I’ve never seen them crawl; they always fly in our house.
I learned that male ants die 10-14 days after mating.
I could use the
TERRO® Liquid Ant Bait – Outdoor Ant Killer
I could use the wasp and hornet spray too. Though the fruit flies are my biggest problem right now as we are still harvesting from our garden.
I like the TERRO® Spider & Insect Trap.
I learned they have solutions for everything. I have not gotten a fruit fly trap before. This is what I could use right now!! We have fruit flies and it is hard to tell where they are coming from too.
I like that you can shake it right from the bag around your house.
I learned that the company is located in Lititz, Pennsylvania.
