The Sticky Trap Black Bucket is prepared and ready for use, all set to start catching! The rope is approximately 40cm long, with a convenient screw attachment for hanging. Simply hang the trap 80-100cm from the ground, in a sunny spot so the black bucket will warm up. Placing the trap in a breezy spot will allow the trap to move in the wind, making the trap irresistible to biting insects. Finally paint the outside of the bucket with Sticky Trap Horsefly Glue. We advise between 3 and 4 traps for 1 hectare (10,000 m2) protecting 5 horses. 2 traps would be perfect for a normal garden. You can give the bucket a second brush of glue after several weeks for an even thicker sticker coating.
