There are five main components that make up the Redtop Flycatcher:
  • A turret through which the flies enter to get into the trap.
  • A cover dish which is the 'chassis' of the trap.
  • A mesh cone which stops the flies from escaping once inside.
  • A bag which contains the bait and the trapped flies.
  • A powdered bait which is mixed with water within the trap.
    A sachet of bait lasts from six to eight weeks before replacement is necessary.

The bait contains no poisons or harmful chemicals.
