No Fly Zone

I like to keep a couple of flour moth traps (sometimes called insect traps) out just in case a flour moth hatches out. Surprisingly, flour moth traps are amazingly effective at catching flies!

This Spring, I opened the traps up and laid them flat in the aviary window, thinking the light coming through the window would attract flour moths if I had any. I tilted the traps out of eye sight.

Was I ever shocked today when I decided that these traps that had been in the window for several months now probably needed changing, they were saturated with flies!

Oh how gross, no flour moths but flies galore!! I immediately shot this photo and discarded them and put two new ones in the window!

The Traps Make My aviary A No Fly Zone!
