The Gallagher MT-Trap Horse Fly and Wasp Trap is an excellent solution to get rid of 95% of horseflies and wasps. It is a portable horsefly trap so it allows you to easily transport it wherever you require, it will attract and collect horse flies and wasps from a wide area without the use of any chemicals.
The MT-trap is designed to catch those aggressive insects which commonly create a lot of irritation to horses, livestock and people.
Where can I use the MT Trap?
Ideal for use in a wide range of situations wherever Horseflies are a nuisance, including:
How does the MT-Trap work?
Horse flies are attracted by the shape and warmth of the black ball which they believe to be a large animal. They are attracted to this from many hundreds of metres away due to their extreme sensitivity to infrared (heat) which they use to target animals for feeding. Once they have been attracted to the ball they cannot escape due to the netting.
The smaller MT-Trap can be used alone or with the full size H-Trap to extend horsefly protection around key areas where livestock and people are situated. The worst period for horse flies is normally around May to August. Horseflies are attracted by the large black ball as detailed above.
Wasps are commonly at their most prevalent in the period August to September. Although wasps are active all summer long, in the early months, their activity is all about nest building and raising their young. Once the Queen stops laying eggs and the colony begins to reduce in size, the workers, who normally received a sugar reward from within the hive, begin to be deprived of this treat, and start hunting for sugar outside the hive, which means they become a nuisance whenever we are eating and drinking outdoors or where sweet foodstuffs are involved. This usually begins in the latter half of the summer.
To make the MT-Trap effective for wasps, all you need to do is clean the catch chamber and add a sugary liquid or wasp attractant (not included) to the pot. This will then attract and collect the wasps in a cheap and simple way.
