The way a Horsefly Glue Trap works is simple:

Infrared vision horsefly

  1. Biting insects including horseflies & deerflies hunt using their infrared vision to find warm-blooded prey.
  2. 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.  
  3. A black plastic object warmed by sunlight, moving in the wind attracts the bloodthirsty female horsefly, by simulating her prey.
  4. 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!

How to build a budget horsefly trap with a black bucket:

Build a flytrap for deerflies

  1.  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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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. 
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
