Place this trivet under your compost crock or fruit bowl, and only you will know that it’s hard at work catching fruit flies — without taking up additional counter space. Simply mix and pour the lure into the trap. Fruit flies enter through a hole in the bottom and can’t escape. Dump and replace with fresh lure every two weeks. Includes three nontoxic lures; additional lures sold separately.

Not so sure about this.

Comments about : Fruit Fly Trivet Trap w/3 Lures:
I used it just like the photo showed. It didn't attract very many fruit flies.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This fits perfectly underneath my wire fruit bowl. Of course, by the time I ordered it the weather changed and it killed all the fruit flies! I can't comment on how effective it was for the flies, unfortunately. But it is a quality made product that I expect to function well next fruit fly season!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Finally, I can have a fruit bowl out for more than two days!
from Ridge, NY
Wonderful for those bananas that end up in banana bread, but not before they attract those little pests. Not appropriate for "whole kitchen" fruit fly attacks but it works with the bowl above it, just as promised. Right now I have some tomatoes from my garden in the bowl and at least one was on the overripe side. I was going to cook with that one tonight. There are no fruit flies!I bought two, one for me and one for a neighbor who was complaint of the buggers in her kitchen. Actually then, this is a two for one review. She is pleased also. No fruit flies in her kitchen either!

watch out for spillage
from waitsfield VT
this was good in theory, but i'm not sure it's really working. the flies congregate around the opening, and when I added the water it spilled all around. Not sure how to clean it out.

Did not work at all
from Union MO
This attracted no fruit flies. I even tried my faithful apple cider vinegar instead of the lure. I finally ran a test and put vinegar in both the trap and a glass with a piece of plastic with a hole in it on top. The glass caught all the flies, the trap, none.

No way to clean

The idea is good, but the practicality of use is not.
