Ah, the homesteading life. Complete with chickens, ducks, quail, rabbits, cats, and a dog. And a lot of poop. A LOT.
A lot of poop means that we attract a lot of flies in our yard. That’s all fine and dandy, but when these winged pests try and move into my home, I draw the line. In the past, I have had 3 options for getting rid of flies. And I needed something that was chemical insecticide free.
- Pay my youngest son a bounty for each fly he killed with the flyswatter
- Hang fly strips
- Electric “bug zapper”
Since having fly strips all over my home doesn’t look appetizing or inviting for our guests, I opted to NOT do that one. (you’re welcome!) Paying my son $.10 per fly got to be expensive, too. There was one single day he earned nearly $15. I’ll wait while you do the math, if you’d like. And the bug zapper was loud, especially at night. Not the most pleasant sound, hearing it go “zzzzit, zzzit” as insects were singed.
We work hard raising our garden, animals, and the family as naturally and free of man-made chemicals as possible. So, what options were we left with?
That’s when ZEVO entered my life.
Zevo is a plug-in flying insect trap that works without noise, while being chemical insecticide free, and without tacky strips hanging all over the place. It’s a perfect combination of a flying insect trap, for indoor flying pest control.
This flying insect trap uses a blue and UV light mixture that mimics the sun and moon’s light patterns to attract flying insects. They fly into the blue light and are trapped by the sticky backing contained in just a small area. It is small and can basically “hide” so you don’t have to share your fly problem with the rest of the world.
Using ZEVO is easy. Simply snap the cartridge into place, and plug it in. Viola! Done! Each cartridge lasts about a month, and when it’s full, simply remove and toss away. No messy strips to take down and rehang. No more messy flies in your home! Gnats, mosquitoes, and other flying insects will no longer be an issue!
Chemical insecticide free and noise free flying insect trap all in one?
That’s a win-win in my book! If you find you have issues with flies on your homestead (and we all do!) then you really should try ZEVO! It’s the best indoor pest control you will find without worrisome chemicals!
