TERRO T2502 Fruit Fly Trap – 2 traps
Have you spotted fruit flies swarming around your kitchen or garbage can? With the TERRO Fruit Fly Trap you can get the best of these annoying household pests in no time! This fast-acting trap uses a non-staining liquid bait to lure adult fruit flies inside. Once the flies enter the trap, they cannot escape to continue breeding and multiplying. The trap also features an attractive apple-shaped design that will look at home in any kitchen.
EASY TO USE
Getting rid of fruit flies in your home has never been easier! Just follow these four simple steps.
- Set the traps upright on a solid surface and remove the cap from the lure bottle.
- Insert the tip of the lure bottle into the center hole of the trap. Empty half of the bottle into each trap.
- Place the traps in areas where you’ve spotted fruit flies in a spot where they will not be disturbed or tipped.
- Discard the traps after 45 days of use.
HOW DO THEY WORK?
Fruit flies depend on moist organic debris. The TERRO Fruit Fly Trap lures adult fruit flies to the trap using a special food-based liquid lure. Flies that enter the trap through one of the many funnel-shaped holes are unable to escape and continue breeding. In a matter of days, you should begin to notice a dramatic decrease in the number of fruit flies around your home.
ATTRACTIVE APPLE DESIGN
Gone are the days of unsightly traps taking up space inside your home! This trap features an attractive apple-shaped design that will look at home in any kitchen. It also blends in with the fruit these pests love! For your convenience, the trap also has a built-in window, allowing you to keep an eye on catches and lure levels.
LOCATING BREEDING AREAS
When trying to eliminate fruit flies, the key to success is locating their breeding areas. You’ll typically spot fruit flies swarming around kitchen fruit bowls and near garbage cans. Place traps behind or under kitchen counters, sinks, dishwashers, near unrefrigerated fruits and vegetables, and any other location where fruit is stored.
We had a pretty good infestation of the annoying little critters around our garden veggies. Tried a few things with no luck. Then got these. Really easy to set up, just pour in a little of the provided bait fluid and set them around the kitchen. In a day most of the fruit flies were gone, anall were gone within about 4 days. It’s been a month, more veggies, some getting overripe, but not a fruit fly in sight. Great product.

It worked although be sure to put it in places that it will not tip over otherwise it’s a terrible smell it didn’t come with hardly any solution although I found if I took apple cider vinegar especially the raw kind and mixed with a little bit of water I could refill it and it would work wish it was a bit cheaper for what they give you but all in all for a very small fruit fly problem it worked okay I give it like an eight

We had a few fruit flies in the kitchen as well as the in the livingroom. Not a full infestation, but enough to be very annoying with them buzzing into our faces and landing in our drinks. It was extremely quick and easy to set up both pods, and within just a few hours the traps caught 8 fruit flies. It has been a day since we set them out and not a single fruit fly has been spotted. If you’re in doubt, just buy this and try it out.
First I tried using vinegar and dish soap in bowls, and that caught dozens of them. But there were still a few stragglers who didn’t fall for my traps. I got these traps and within a few minutes a bunch of fruit flies started landing on them.Note these don’t work by trapping the fruit flies. The flies are attracted to the smell of the liquid, but the water has a chemical in it that prevents the flies from escaping once they touch it, eventually causing them to drown. There are some reviews saying these aren’t trapping flies, but that’s because they aren’t intended to.
Did everything as it claimed. However it does smell a lot worse than it claimed. The liquid it comes with evaporated rather quickly. Which, I mean, they can’t control how fast something evaporates. But that said it’s be nice if it came with more than one application per apple. Anyway, I used it until they dried out and both apples combined killed probably 20–25 fruit flies and afterwards I didn’t have anymore and still don’t have any. They were in the kitchen around the fruit bowl. (Duh) lol but yeah, no more fruit flies. So I haven’t had to make my own liquid and refill them. Otherwise I would have done that. Oh, and I hate the smell of vinegar so that’s why I didn’t like that. There were times when I’d be in the kitchen doing things and would get a huge whiff of it and that kind of sucks but at the same time it is needed to draw in the fruit flies. Long story short, it’s a great product at an amazing price.

I know there are DIY fruit fly traps on the web, but sometimes is easier to just buy something that works, and these do work. Although the holes in the top of the ‘apple’ sometimes seem to elude the stupid little critters, which just perch on the top of it. Eventually, they make their way inside where they are trapped and eventually drown in the liquid, which smells like a mixture of apple cider vinegar and something else, which makes sense as the DIY recipes online include that as an attractant. Anyway, these work really well and are affordable, so I buy them occasionally when we get fruit flies in the house. These work, period.
I buy this every summer for fruit flies and it works great. I am not a fan of the smell, but that is probably unavoidable as I tend to be very sensitive about all odors. This is asking me to rate the “adhesion” but I don’t know what adhesion they are referring to. You just squirt the bait into the little apple trap and then put the trap wherever you think the flies are breeding, like near the fruit or the sink. Within a couple of days, all the flies are gone! Hooray! The only downside is that if you need to bait the traps again later, you have to buy more bait and that costs more than buying the initial bait & traps. But it’s not that big of a deal. Also, this only works for fruit flies. If you have house flies, pantry moths, or anything else, you have to treat for that insect. There isn’t a product that gets rid of all insects and lets people survive.
Nothing personal to others submitting videos.. but a bunch of dead nats just look like pepper flakes, lol. So I won’t waste my time or yours. I didn’t think this would live to the hype. DAMN.. filled it the 1st day with nat floated.There is only one that I can’t catch this big ol Daddy nat that is annoying as can be!! I’m about to setup a snipers nest for it and lay down enough fire to direct into the damn “apple”. Speaking of apples these do look like mini apples!! They are a perfect blend, no smell, just floating nats. On one day after there were easily 20 nats in each. I never even saw that many!?! True what they say it only takes a few to breed

We recently moved to a new office and noticed gnats and/or fruit flies seemed to like what we’ve done with the place. Every day, my coworkers and I were swatting at these things. The property management was slow at sending out pest control, so I took a chance on these. I ordered 6 total units and put them all out as soon as they arrived. Within 2 hours, each apple had at least 3 gnats on it. The one in the highest problem area had 7! The next morning, each apple had several dead bugs in it and the tops were still attracting more. There was only 1 that I noticed flying around that day compared to dealing with them all day. By the second morning, they were completely gone. We have not seen any since the first 24 hours and we are now a week fly/gnat free. Highly recommend. We will use these again should the problem return.

I hate Flys, fruit frys ect. They’re disgusting! I had few and my sister told me about this. Litterally open the solution bottle, pur 1/2 in they top whole, visualize pour thru clear window on side. Other 1/2 is for other bottle in 45 days. Remember this is for the tiny fruit Flys, not regular flies.Well Holy smokes! They were on it within 30 minutes, then went inside. I van see about 20 floating in the window, wich I only had a few, alot more than I tbought!! Worked soo fast, theyre all gone in 1/4 day.Not my sister had soooooo many, all over everything from a piece of rotted fruit that fell out of sight. It was soooooo gross! She put both out in different spots, gone after a couple days.I’m leaving mine out the full 45 days as its not gross, can5 see them, no smell ect. Definitely buy this, they are attracted to the heavily scent of apple cidar vinegar(dont know what else if anything is in solution) then they crawl in and drown in it, cant get out.
