Maxifly Kit Overview

Maxifly is a robust and easy-to-use solution for monitoring and trapping nuisance flies.

Use throughout the fly season in outdoor areas using the effective attractant Maxibait. The system comes with a swift and hygienic emptying procedure using Maxidry which results in a soil-enhancing product suitable for the garden, soils and composts.

  • Designed with a chimney effect to maximise attraction and successful trapping.
  • Holes at the top and bottom help to moderate the temperature so flies will continue to enter the trap on hot days.
  • Effective, high capacity and simple to use.
  • The lure contains a biodegradable pheromone and kairomone for double attraction.
  • The trap, Maxi bait lure and Maxi dry are all insecticide free and non-toxic.
  • Once the trap is full the Maxidry is used to solidify the liquid, remove odour and make the waste easily disposable.
  • Waste can be added to compost as a potent fertiliser and is completely biodegradable.
  • Spill-resistant, economical solution to fly problems

  • Twist the top of the trap to separate it from the base of the trap. Fill the liner with water until the embossed line.
  • Add 1 sachet of Maxibait and stir well.
  • Place the liner back into the Maxifly trap and attach the lid, twisting to secure.
Where to place / Distance
  • Hang trap on the outskirts of an area you want to protect, where the flies are most active e.g. on a wall or in a tree, in the sun when cold and in the shade when hot.
  • Do not place within 5 metres of the place you want to protect, as the trap will encourage flies to it.
  • Do not place within 5 metres of breeding areas such as manure heaps.
  • The trap works best when hung approximately 2 metres from the ground.
  • If placed in a grid formation, hang approximately every 10 metres.
  • When the trap is full remove the lid and liner.
  • Empty 1 sachet of Maxidry into the full trap and allow to solidify.
  • Once the water has solidified dispose of in soil or compost to help condition soil.
  • Store lure in a cool dry place for a shelf life of 6 months.
  • If longer storage is required, store in a fridge or freezer.
