Default the lure of Coca Cola .....

g'day john,

the recipes aren't mine to own, but i tried them all last season with
no success, or similar to current formula. seems that it depends
largely on when and where the female hatches and gets her fix of
protein. if she gets the fix before coming to your garden then the
traps are ineffective, it would seem.

the supermarkets should all sell them, or try produce agencies or
hardwares.

I shall have a stern word with Vasili, in that case. Have you got
any lures baited with your own recipe, for comparison?

Week before last's ABC gardening program showed the use of cloth
bags around individual fruit, to protect from fruit flies (also
from birds, possums, and sunburn). It resembled that waterproof
material that you can get as an inner cover for pillows, and which
comes as a wrapping for some electronics goods. A finely woven
cloth, nothing like plastic, and too strong to tear. He used it
for his figs. (Once they reached a good size, I guess, so that
they had already been pollinated.)

Anyone got a clue where I can buy some hanging sticky fly strips around
Brisbane/Logan ?

Coles in Sydney have them, Mortein brand IIRC. I did buy some
Chinese brand from a $2 store, but they weren't nearly as sticky
as the supermarket ones and they hardly caught any flies. And
they seemed to dry up, whereas the good ones stay sticky forever.

I guess you can't shop through Coles online?

Maybe try the local pest controller (Flick man). If he doesn't
have them, he might be able to order them. I have seen a recipe
for making your own (heat sugar and stuff, and dunk strips of
brown paper); there's probably something on the web though the
idea is likely too 'survivalist' for your need. :-)

Their sticky fly paper is "Rentokil" brand, actually.

Well I made several with the formula I googled and published , basically
it is so sticky the fly can't get away without self destruction and
after several days have captured a lot of flies , the dogs are far less
bothered and no longer foll0wed by a dark cloud


Good recipe. You could have made some toffee apples at the same time!

I declare a success


It's fully degradeable, too. When the fly paper is full up, you can add
it to the compost, or lower it a bit so it becomes a doggie treat! LOL
