Fruit Fly Trap

By George, it really works!

Within the first four days ALONE, this thing had attracted over a hundred fruit flies.

Very effective

This product works great. I recently tested it alongside several homemade traps (using cider vinegar), and so far the Bug Botanist trap is winning 12 to 4 as far as dead flies. I'll be ordering more!

They are gone!

I had a fruit fly infestation and could not get rid of them. I put out 2 jars of the traps, and by the next morning, the majority of them were gone!

  • FAQ
    • The product says that it has a “pleasant scent”. I agree – but does that mean you added fragrance to it?

      No! There are no added parabens, phthalates, sulfates, dyes or artificial fragrances. Just geraniol, lemongrass and other ingredients that happen to smell really nice, if we do say so ourselves.

    • How do you test your insecticide?

      We test the same way you use the product – we spray it on the bugs. We’re proud to tell you that we don’t test on any animals – except bugs, of course. Please don’t apply under clothing, diapers, or armpits. Don’t apply on cuts, wounds, or irritated skin.

    • Are your products organic and chemical-free?

      While our products are not organic, they do contain essential oils and natural plant oils – which are technically considered chemicals.

  • Sustainability

    The white HDPE container is recyclable. Please remove the label before recycling.

    The jar lid and its label are not recyclable. Please dispose of the lid in the trash.
