Had a MAJOR fruit fly problem over the weekend. Couldn't enter the kitchen (or the bathroom) without a whole bunch of flies doing a fly past. Tried some home made remedies (didn't try apple cider vinegar tho - maybe some other time - or hopefully not) with very limited success. Was too frustrated to keep trying home made solutions. Read reviews online and bought this product.

Within 24 hours - a HUGE difference! A few straddlers are still around - but the trap continues to get those as well. Would highly recommend this. Got to give it at least 10-12 hours to notice any difference.

I live in a 1 bedroom apartment (~800 square feet) and have lots of fruit flies around all parts of my apartment. I set up this trap three days ago and have moved it around a couple times, including to a spot where it was within inches of where several fruit flies constantly are hanging out...Yet I haven't seen any difference in the number of flies in my place and when I look inside the trap there isn't even 1 fruit fly caught! :( I'll keep it set up, obviously, and hopefully it will eventually start to catch some flies.

    Comments about Terro® Fruit Fly Trap (T2500):

    I have noticed tons of fruit flies hanging around the tomatoes I have harvested from my garden. None of which are going bad yet. bought this product today around 2:30 in the afternoon. I got 2 of them to try to attract as many of these little bugs as possible. Assembled it quickly and easily. I put them out on the counter in the area I had been setting the tomatoes. After about 5 minutes I started seeing flies accumulating on the outer part of the trap. I was curious and kept picking it up/checking the top which clearly scared them off. The flies were definitely attracted to it. When I poured in the liquid I got some of it on the outside of the chamber so I just took a q tip and dried off the middle section. I let it sit for a couple hours and when I came back around 5 pm there are at least 10 in one of the traps and it looks like maybe 6 in the other. I took pictures hoping I could attach them to this review. I can't.

    THIS WORKS! just let it sit without hovering over it and moving it! I almost didn't buy it bc of some of the reviews so glad I did! I don't know if having 2 in close proximity made a stronger attractant but if you're not seeing results with just 1 maybe try a second one.

      Comments about Terro® Fruit Fly Trap (T2500):

      We had the worst invasion of fruit flies that I can remember in 53 years of marriage. I set it up in the kitchen and at first I was afraid I was going to agree with those who gave it a one star rating. After the third day it really began to attract, catch and kill the flies. It has been over a week now and the flies are gone. The operative word with this product is "patience." Leave it in one location and let it do it's job. The bottom of the jar is now covered with DEAD flies.

        Not so much a comment about the product, but about the ACE website...they estimated 5-7 days to ship...it arrived in 3. Nice Job ACE!!
        Also, love the traps..they work 100X better than the homemade version I tried to cobble together.
        We always bring home fruit flies from our Farmer's market b/c everything is pesticide free. An annoying tradeoff for top notch produce and flowers...but these traps take care of them usually in 24 hours.

          I tried all the DIY remedies for fruit flies that I found on internet and not worked. I heard about Terro Fruit Fly Trap on a website and tried it. I am really pleased with results. It took a few days but after making sure that everything that attracted them were removed, it worked like a charm.

                  This is a poorly made piece of junk that breaks when trying to use it following the directions. Also, has a 30 day limited use period. Not a very sound expenditure.

                      This trap worked wonders! We have a compost bucket and garden vegetables and fruit on the counter. Every year we have a terrible time with fruit flies and this year it was worse. We had them hovering over the toilets and the sinks along with the compost and produce on the counters. We placed one of these in the main bathroom and the other in the kitchen and within hours there were little to no fruit flies; by the next day they were gone! It was amazing to see how many were in the trap. Thanks for a great product.

                              Experimented with homemade fruit fly traps in the past with only limited success. Placed this one on the window sill behind my kitchen sink. It was smaller than my homemade traps and very unobtrusive. I estimated I had maybe a dozen flies in my kitchen but after 2 days found at least 50 in this trap. Very effective and will buy again.

                                Comments about Terro® Fruit Fly Trap (T2500):

                                We tested this product side-by-side with a plain old bowl filled with cider vinegar (saran on top with holes poked in) and we found the Terro to be a bit more effective. Both kinds of traps killed fruit flies, but I prefer Terro because it's more appealing to look at on your counter. Very effective.

                                  I put this out next to my fruit bowl in my kitchen (I had a terrible fruit fly problem) and the next day - no more fruit flies- other than a bunch of drowned fruit flies in the trap. I love this product!
