2.1 Where do I need to stick the fruit fly trap, IN or ON the garbage can?

The best spot to stick the Ninja is on eye level near hindrance areas. You can find out for yourself which spot works best for you. Some people stick it in the garbage bag and forget about it, others stich it ON the can. The garbage attracts a lot of fruit flies, making the trapping rate extremely high when the trap is located so close. But a Ninja will work on all places where you experience fruit fly hindrance. 

2.2 Do the traps also attract other insects?

No, in principe the attractant is specifically engineered to attract fruit flies. We never experienced or gearde that other flies flew into the trap. One time we got a feedback that an ant crawled into the trap. Good riddance.

2.3 Is the attractant toxic?

No, the attractant is not toxic, it’s even food grade!

2.4 Can I buy refill liquid?

Taking all things into consideration it’s both cheaper and more convenient to just install a new Ninja due to time savings, stocking cost and bill of material: the liquid is the most expensive part. 

2.5 What if my child swallows the liquid?

This should not be any issue, the liquid is food grade and not toxic. And probably the child will not do it again: it doesn’t taste that great (although fruit flies disagree).

To be sure: let the child drink a lot of water, by doing so everything gets diluted. 

2.6 Do you smell the attractant after installing it?

No, only when you come really close you can smell them. In principle the Ninja will only be noticed by fruit flies.

2.7 Is the use of Fruit Fly Ninja environmental friendly?

Yes, the traps are made of biodegradable plastic and materials. This means you can just trow it away with the garbage, or choose to recycle it with other plastics. In nature the trap will be degraded in between two to four years. This minimizes impact on the environment.

We strive to minimise impact on the environment and hope to inspire others as well to use biodegradable materials.

2.8 How does a Fruit Fly Ninja works?

A Fruit Fly Ninja is a very simple but handy trap: once a fruit fly is lured into the trap via the funnel, it cannot find the exit anymore.

A Fruit Fly Ninja can be placed very conveniently:
1. Remove the cap
2. Take the liner (sticker foil) off
3. Stick it anywhere on eye level near hindrance areas
4. That’s it! The Ninja is ready for its mission.
