Terro Fruit Fly Trap Review and Giveaway

I hate fruit flies.  I don't know anyone who actually likes them.  I live in a cherry orchard so they are inevitable.  Last year was the worst year I had ever seen.  I typically make my own trap but that is messy and bulky.  I was approached at the beginning of the summer by Terro to see if I would like to do a review of their new Non-Toxic fruit fly trap.  It didn't take me but a minute to reply YES!  





Here is a picture of my trap in action.  See the fruit fly on the top?  It works. I can't wait for all of his friends to join him.
It literally took about 20 minutes for the trap to be covered in fruit flies and I have noticed that the number of them flying around has significantly decreased!  SCORE!




Terro traps can be purchased on Amazon: Terro 2500 Fruit Fly Trap and at Ace Hardware Stores.  They retail for $9.99 and in my opinion, they are worth every penny.  You can also purchase them on terro.com for $8.99!






Win It:  Two lucky winners will each win two traps, a $20 value!  Just tell me where you could use your traps the most and what you use now to kill these pesky pests.

I would use them in our kitchen because we currently use fly swatters!

I'd use them in the kitchen. Right now we use sponges soaked in sugar water.

I would use these these traps in my kitchen. We recently bought some beautiful plants, but an unfortunate side effect has been the arrival of fruit flies that seem to like the damp soil substrate.

Right now we don't use anything, except a fly swatter with limited effectiveness.

I take a plastic cup, fill it about a 1/4 of the way with balsamic vinegar and then stick fly tape around the top of the cup. It gets rid of the problem every time.

I'd use the traps in my kitchen. It seems like we have fruit flies all the time. I've used a shallow dish with about a 1/2 tsp of apple cider vinegar covered with a piece of plastic wrap. I punch holes in the plastic wrap and fold back an edge enough for the flies to get in. They get trapped and drown. It works but the smell is so sicky sweet.

I'd use them in my laundry room. That's where the trashcan resides.

Right now we don't use anything but a fly swatter. I would use them in my kitchen. We always have some many flies because of all the fruit my children consume.
