I was so impressed by your knowledge about flies! I’m a human phernome for yellow flies, if there is one around, they will bite me 5 timess..and of course I’m allergic and the bites are sooo painful….do you know of any traps that will work outside at my campsite?
At this time there is no pheromone trap for yellow flies. However, a combination of AQUACIDE AEROSOL being sprayed around the camp site and then some CONCEAL CANDLES set up inside the area will reduce their numbers for sure. The Aquacide is both a repellent and a flying insect killer. Flies are very sensitive to it and will stay clear of areas where it’s been applied.
The Candles tend to repel any biting pest including gnats, mosquitoes, noseeums and biting flies. Both can be used safely in these areas without posing a hazard to the people or environment.
