The Bottom Line: Safe to use around kids and pets, Aeroxon Fly Catchers stopped our fly problem!
I hate flies. Not only are they nasty, seeing as they are usually found on or near trash or feces, they are pesky. They fly around your head, buzzing. They try to land on your food, your body. They give me the willies!

We have tons of flies in our apartment this year. The trash corrals for both our apartment, and the one upstairs, are just a few feet from the back door. When we let the dog outside to go potty, at least one manages to sneak in. Rather than use a flyswatter, having fly guts all over everything, I went to Wal-Mart and bought Aeroxon Fly Catchers.
What are Aeroxon Fly Catchers? They come in a box of four. Each of the Aeroxon Fly Catchers are just over 2" tall and roughly 3/4" wide. They're round. When you take the cap off, you'll find a thumb tack inside of it to use to hang your Fly Catcher.
To use, you remove the cap and gently pull the red ribbon out in a circular motion. This unwinds the Fly Catcher. When ready to use, the Aeroxon Fly Catchers are roughly 2 feet long. You then, using the thumb tack in the cap, hang the fly catcher by the ribbon. According to the directions, it's best to use all four at one time, but our apartment is to small. I use one or two at a time, at the most.
The Aeroxon Fly Catchers have some kind of special glue on them that is supposed to attract flies. They don't smell at all, but they are very ugly to look at, especially once flies start coming in to check it out. The yellow, glue covered ribbon ends up dotted with flies. They pull and try to get away, but the glue holds fast!
You have to be very careful where you hang the Aeroxon Fly Catchers. I have accidentally walked into them before. The glue doesn't let go of the flies and it sure doesn't let go of hair, either! I ended up having to cut the glue out because no matter what I used, the glue wouldn't wash out. Luckily, it was only a small section, so the trim wasn't obvious. I felt like an idiot, though. As ugly as they are, you would have thought I would have seen it, but since I wasn't used to something being there, I forgot and walked right into it.
For the most part, we haven't had a problem using the Aeroxon Fly Catchers around our son or pets. Since they only hang down roughly 2 feet from the ceiling, none of the animals, or our son, can reach them. Well, the cats could if they climbed on stuff, and jumped, but they haven't even tried. Since there are no insecticides involved, I just have to make sure that they're up high enough that none of them get stuck in the glue.
The Aeroxon Fly Catchers are great to use anywhere flies are a problem. Inside or out, as long as it's warm, the Aeroxon Fly Catchers grab them and won't let go! If they get to cold, the glue isn't as sticky, so it says to warm them to room temperature before use.
As much as I hate to look at them, I would much rather use Aeroxon Fly Catchers than any other method to take care of the fly problem that we have. When it gets full of flies, I just drop it in the trash and open another. Since they're cheap, I picked up a couple of boxes, so I always have them on hand.
