Information About the Rid-Max Fly Trap
What is the Rid-Max Fly Trap? PDF Print

The Rid-Max Fly Trap is a patented, environmentally safe insect trap. The Rid-Max Fly Trap has been tested and certified by the USDA. It traps flies and other insects without the use of toxic pesticides, liquids, or messy and expensive chemical lures. Users provide their own choice of safe and natural bait using whatever material is attracting insects to the area.

The Rid-Max Fly Trap is re-usable, which is both economically wise and environmentally beneficial. The trap is effortlessly assembled for use, and the dried, dehydrated flies are easily emptied from the trap for disposal. The Rid-Max is portable and collapses flat upon disassembly for quick convenient storage or travel.

The trap is constructed thus: a 7" diameter cylinder-shaped outer screen "holding area" with an inner removable inverted cone that snaps into place at the bottom of the trap. The assembled trap stands approximately 7.5" high, with legs extending 3" (or less, depending on surface area trap will be used) from the bottom of the trap. The foot pads on the ends of the legs are threaded and adjustable to prevent rocking and to allow leveling on uneven surfaces.

The manufacturers of the Rid-Max Fly Trap are very concerned about our environment and the damage pesticide and chemical insect-killing products do to our planet and our bodies. They also are strong supporters of recycling to help conserve our natural resources. For this reason, the Rid-Max Fly Trap is manufactured using only recycled materials and is considered a "Green" product. The trap and cone are made from recycled plastic material. The legs are made from cadmium plated recycled tensile steel.

How Does the Rid-Max Work? PDF Print

The Rid-Max Fly Trap is based on a very simple concept similar to those which have been in use for centuries for fish and crustaceans. We adapted this concept to work with insects using 21st century technology, allowing this device made from recycled materials to be re-usable, portable, effective, and environmentally safe.

The Rid-Max Fly Trap is placed over a suitable bait or fly attracting matter. Flies are attracted to the bait placed under the trap. Insects which are lured by the bait, instinctively travel upward and into the coned area. They then crawl through the opening at the top of the cone, and are trapped in the "holding area" of the trap.

The mesh walls of the Rid-Max Fly Trap serve many important purposes which include:

• the ability of the trap to easily collapse for storage or travel
• solar dehydration of trapped insects alleviating the wet, smelly mess associated with liquid insect traps
• to enhance the trapping abilities of this product.

For example, the live trapped flies release pheromones--natural scents which insects emit for communication and breeding purposes. The pheromones serve as an attractant enticing more flies into the trap. Flies are instinctively lured to feeding and buzzing activity produced by other flies. Just the frenzied activity in the trap of a few flies will attract more, and the trapping cycle continues.

Once egg laying flies are caught, the breeding cycle is broken. This drastically reduces the future fly population in the area where the trap is in use.

Trapped flies will dehydrate in approximately one day. Once desiccated, the insects are virtually weightless and odorless, take up little room in trash, and are biodegradable.

It is not necessary to empty the Rid-Max Fly Trap until the level of dehydrated insects are approximately half way up the height of cone area. If desired, insects which are still buzzing can be sprayed with a harmless soapy water solution before removal. To empty the Rid-Max Fly Trap, the inner cone can be easily and quickly removed. Disposal of dried insects is a simple matter of emptying into a trash bag. Some customers use the live or dehydrated insects to feed their reptiles, amphibians, birds, or fish. The cone is securely snapped back into place, and the trap again is ready for use.
