Pesky flies were caught indeed...
First of all, it is bigger than it seems from the picture - about 12'' long (I know, I know, that's what she said).
We put in in the kitchen, where we had pesky fruit flies for a while. The device is intended to work in a dark place with no other light sources to "distract" the bugs, so we plugged it in at night. The first few nights we got a pretty good catch, including a moth. Things have leveled off since, I don't know whether because we have less flies, or because the sticky pad filled up. Or maybe the little buggers figured it out.
An unexpected plus - it doubles as a night light, so we don't trip over the dog anymore trying to get to a crying baby in the middle of the night... (-:
on 2016-07-28 Great product...just don't tell the bugs.
This ten pack of sticky glue boards for the Fly Web Fly Trap - FlyWeb PLUS lamp Fly Web Fly Trap - FlyWeb PLUS 10 Watts
work extremely well and are also odorless.
The boards are pre-cut to size so that they fit within the plastic tab mounts of the fly lamps housing. They are easy to remove because the glue does not cover the entire board, thankfully there is a 1/4 inch gap around the boards perimeter allowing fingers to pluck the board from the lamp.
Once a bug is captured on the board, the more they struggle, the more enmeshed they become in the glue. The boards are white in color, this makes it easy to see how many insects are stuck to them.

Best indoor fly catcher
I've tried so many fly remedies and this is definitely the best one for inside your home. I've been using it for several years now. They are especially good for mosquitoes. Just turn off the lights at night and leave this one on and they all flock to it. As for outside, if you have livestock, best remedy for flies is attracting fly predators. There are companies that sell these bugs, but you can attract them for free by planting certain things like dill, parsley and more.

A Real Killer!
The glue board for flies and the light that goes with them are amazing. I had a house full of flies and baby flies popping up everywhere. I plugged in the light and popped one of the fly glue boards in the back slot behind the light. It took about 3 days to get rid of the adults. I then had to contend with the babies. Worked great with them. (Not as savvy as the adults). I would say all I have now are those that sneak in when a door is opened.

just need a light source
I lay these glue pads inside a standing lamp I have and they work great. I use the 'reading lamp' turned up and place the pads on each side of the light bulb. Viola! They work great!

My dog is more effective at catching flies
I wanted to like this and sounds like a good concept, but it's only caught about 4 flies in the week I've had it. I bought it due to a fly infestation and tried it in multiple locations around the house where the flies liked to congregate. I finally got fed up and just started sucking them up with our vacuum cleaner (which was rather effective using the wand). We got a new dog not long after this and I'm not joking when I say he's been better at keeping the flies at bay than this device.

Easy to replace and low maintenance
The "bug light" that these are for is fabulous. I own two; one for the upstairs, one for the downstairs. I don't have to replace these sticky cards very often because my main problem is those tiny annoying fruit flies. It occasionally catches a moth or fly, but those rarely get into my house.
1) After I had these for a few months, the cards didn't fill up as fast.
2) After almost three years the bulb burned out. But so much of the glue has "melted" and run down off these glue card inserts that the bulb socket is full of the glue (and clumps of dead bugs that were stuck to that glue). I don't feel it's safe to put a replacement bulb in. I'm debating about replacing the entire unit. That's pretty costly. I also thought about hooking it to a timer so that it's off during the day (when the bulb doesn't attract as many fruit flies) so it can cool off and not melt the glue as much... but I've not seen a timer yet with the outlet in the right position for this to work.

Lifesaver right here. Stop reading, just say "Shut Up and Take My Money!!".
That is how good the Fly Web product line is good. Each summer, the house is nearly bug free because they all end up in a land of sticky goodness. I go through about 20 each season and each one is worth it's weight in gold. Side note, these things weight nothing so its the perfect product to claim its worth its weight in gold!

on 2012-10-04 Replacement Glue Boards - Recommended
These Fly Web Glue Boards work as well as the single included glue board that comes with the Fly Web Fly Trap
. To be clear, this is not a standalone product, they are designed to be used in the "Fly Web Fly Trap".
The Glue Boards have a protective sheet that needs to be removed before they inserted in the dedicated slot of the main unit. This is easy to do and it works reasonably well.
We did a comparison of the "Fly Web Fly Trap" verses the Terro 2500 Fruit Fly Trap
and Fly Paper Strips, Fly Catcher Trap, Victor Fly Bait 4 Pack
, with the old fashion but very ugly Flay Paper Strips winning hands down.
Recommended, if you own the Fly Web Fly Trap

Expensive but it works.
It is simple to use and replace the sticky paper. I placed it at the outlet nearest to where I prepare food and where I have a little bucket with a top on it for scraps etc that I change out daily but bugs are drawn to it. The paper gets filled up with a fascinating assortment of little bugs, however no flies. All and all a bit too expensive but it does do the job, way less flying insects around. I think we'll worth it.
