Mango Season is Fly Season!

Mango time in Jamaica is a favourite of most Jamaicans. It signals the advent of summer holidays and the seemingly endless supply of the beloved fruits.

Freshly sliced mangoes at our home,

For most true-blue Jamaicans, anything that starts with “m” will suffice. But yours truly is a Julie girl (and maybe East Indian if I can’t get my hands on my first love.)

But as much as we love mangoes in Jamaica, this favourite time of year also comes with an unwanted and unwelcome creature. That is Drosophila Melanogaster, or less glamorously, the fruit fly. It seems we humans aren’t the only part of God’s creation that enjoy mangoes, and we have some flies in Jamaica that are not afraid to show it.

They are the epitome of pests – in your face, in your space, in the air, on your walls, and yes, on your mangoes too…they are a nuisance, and that’s putting it mildly.

In Jamaica, there is the practice of spreading wet ackee leaves over tables to repel the pesky flies…leave it in the comments if you know that works 🤷🏾‍♀️.

But for those of us who may not have ackee trees, or who can’t afford to have our space cluttered up with ackee leaves, I have a solution for you.

The FlyFixed Fly Trap is as organic and environmentally safe as ackee leaves, but is more aesthetic, requires less space, and is reusable.

FlyFixed Fly Trap. Best Outdoor Fly Trap.

It works because flies will get naturally attracted to the fresh bait you place in the bowl (see image above). But when they have had their fill, they fly upwards by instinct, pass through the hole at the top of the cone, then get trapped in the net. They eventually die!

So, what are you waiting for? The FlyFixed Fly Trap is:

  1. Non-toxic
  2. Reusable
  3. Effective
  4. Makes a very practical house-warming gift too! (Well, it’s designed for outdoor use, but you get the point!)
