Black Flag® Brand Provides Homeowners A Strong Defense Against Flying Insect Pests
The New Flying Insect Trap and Lures Offer Aesthetic and Discreet Outdoor Pest Protection
ST. LOUIS, MO — May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Flying insect pests like wasps, yellow jackets and flies can pose significant threats to homeowners and their families. This year the dangers may be even greater, as above-average winter temperatures have forced many flying insects out of hibernation earlier than usual. The Black Flag® brand is giving homeowners the chance to take control of their backyards with the launch of its new Black Flag Flying Insect Trap and Lures.
“Whether it’s highly aggressive stinging insects like wasps and yellow jackets or more passive disease-carrying insects like houseflies, this season’s above-average temperatures may lead to a significant increase in flying insect pests come summer,” says John Pailthorp, Division Vice President, Marketing. “The best thing homeowners can do is eliminate these pests before they create an even bigger problem.”
By setting up the Black Flag Flying Insect Trap and Lures during the spring season, homeowners may be able to reduce the number of wasp, yellow jacket and fly colonies come late summer. The trap is reusable and versatile, since it can be placed above the ground (hung from a tree, pole or fence) or attached to the provided stake and pushed into the ground.
The product not only eliminates flying insect pests, it also doesn’t attract unwanted attention, as it is designed to blend into backyard settings. Attractive and discreet, the Black Flag Flying Insect Trap and Lures are also economical, safe, durable and perhaps most importantly, effective, allowing homeowners to enjoy, entertain and relax on their deck or patio with less worry regarding flying insect pests.
For added control, be sure to follow these tips from the Black Flag brand for keeping your backyard pest free.
- Keep gutters clear and direct water from downspouts away from your home.
- Cut back bushes and tree branches around your house.
- Clean up all pet and animal feces promptly.
- Dispose of kitchen scraps and other organic waste properly.
- If you have fruit trees in your yard, pick up any fruit that falls on the ground.
- Place lids on trash and recycling bins and move them away from the house.
