  • Patent number: 4244135
    Abstract: An improved fly and insect trap is provided and comprises a housing and a tubular frusto conical member. The frusto conical member is open at each axial end and is removably secured to and contained within the housing so that the apex is vertically above the base of the frusto conical member. An annular capture chamber open only through the apex opening of the frusto conical portion is formed between the housing and the frusto conical member. A tray of insect bait is disposed beneath the base of the frusto conical member so that insects flying upwardly from the bait pass upwardly through the apex of the frusto conical member and into the capture chamber. The insects are unable to escape from the capture chamber and will either die within the chamber or they can be removed alive for disposal.
