Sticky Trap Horse Fly Glue 1.5L Insect Trap - Paint On DIY Homemade Insect Trap.


Sticky Trap Horsefly Trap Glue is what makes our traps sticky! The Sticky Trap Glue has been specially developed for catching horseflies, stable flies, and other biting insects around people and livestock. The basic recipe originated in the US and is used around the world to catch aggressive biting insects. Sticky Trap Horsefly Trap Glue is made from natural minerals, light brown in colour, sticks for a long period (up to 20 weeks!), and will not attract pollinating insects such as bees and butterflies. Sticky Trap Horsefly Trap Glue’s unique recipe makes it water and heat.  It is also eco-friendly and completely safe to use. Sticky Trap has an adhesive power that is specially designed for catching horseflies, stable flies and other biting insects but does not attract pollinating insects like bees and butterflies and is completely harmless to all others (humans & animals). We do however, recommend hanging traps out of reach and to not apply more than a thin layer (1 -2 mm.)

How To Use


USE: Apply the Sticky Trap glue to the object with a brush or spatula. Traps can be made of various materials; however, plastic is the most suitable. For biting horseflies, we recommend a black bucket. Hang it upside down in an open area so that it can move in the wind and get warm and attract the biting horsefly. Inside stables and barns white buckets, milk cartons and similar products can be used to catch (stable) flies. Buckets can be easily cleaned using a spatula, and so can be used year after year.

Catching flies in the stable, barn or animal shed?

Black flies, humbugs, stable flies and other related species are attracted by feed and faeces. Reproduction takes place by laying eggs on or near the animals. Flies use their snout and tongue to pick up scents and thus know how to find the animals. Horses and cattle suffer the most, but small livestock such as chickens and rabbits are also affected. Indoor enclosures are the ideal breeding ground for these black flies. 

Sticky Trap is used or creating glue traps and has been specifically developed for catching horseflies, stable flies and other biting insects but does not attract pollinating insects like bees and butterflies.


Catching flies near animals can be done in a natural way with the Sticky Trap glue.

Stable and common houseflies can be caught indoors using a white bucket and the Sticky Trap glue. The buckets are often used in stables and hang in a central position above the animals. The trapping only works indoors because these flies are right next to the feed and faeces.


How to create an indoor fly trap with a bucket and fly trap glue.

  1. Drill a hole in the top of the bucket and pull a rope through the hole. Place a metal ring around the rope and tie it with a firm knot, so that the rope is secure.
  2. Hang the bucket with the opening down (see picture). It is advisable to use a white bucket indoors. On the front of white walls, a coloured bucket is required.
  3. Apply a thin layer of the special Sticky Trap fly trap glue, 1-2 mm is sufficient. Tip: wear gloves.
  4. For best results, hang the trap in a central position (in the flight path) and just above the animals (not too high, just out of reach).
