Category: Fly Control
Purchase: Local farm store. Victor Trap was 12.99 for the gallon and 5.99 for the quart. Trap and toss was 3.99.
Likes: Wow. All I can say is WOW!!! I bought both the Victor trap and the Farnam Trap and Toss. I put them side by side in my fly infested field and waited. That was Wednesday. By Sunday my Victor trap is nearly full, yes full of flies(thousands upon thousands). The Farnam Trap and Toss has perhaps 12 flies in it. It took about two days for it to really start attracting flies, but now I can go out and in a matter of hours see the level of flies increasing. I hung them approximately 18 inches from the ground in the sun.
Dislikes: Nothing really. Seeing thousands of flies in a quart jar is nasty, but that I what I paid for!
Quality: Very good. The design is good, but I imagine the bait is what is so potent. I just put in an order for the Victor bait replacement packs to put into the Farnam Trap and Toss since clearly their bait doesn't do much. The Trap and toss is sturdy and has an inverted funnel that is attached to a rounded cylinder. The Victor Magnet Trap is a clear plastic bottle with a black lid with holes covered by a white "roof" and a hook for hanging. The trap and toss is well, toss-able. The Victor trap is reusable.
Summary: The Victor trap works dramatically better than the trap and toss. My field is nearly fly free at this point after less than a week. I am truly amazed. Victor is all I will buy now.
