Stableband adhesive roll is effective for controlling flying insects in your stables, sheds, and other outbuildings. It is a traditional flypaper trap with a twist; the adhesive roll is printed with images of flies. This creates the illusion of a safe place to land. Upon landing, the insect will stick to the roll and become trapped.
Stableband is easy to install; hang it from the ceiling using the handle and roll it out to the desired length. When you are ready for a fresh piece, cut off the depleted piece of roll and unroll a new piece.

What is Stableband?
Stableband is a large sticky fly trap. It uses semi-siliconized paper that has images of house flies printed on it. This attracts house flies to the paper that then gets stuck on the non-drying glue.
Does Stableband use any toxins?
No. Stableband doesn’t use any chemicals to attract the flies. All it uses is sticky paper to catch the flies when they land.
How big is Stableband?
Each roll of Stableband measures 300mm x 55mm.
Where should I install Stableband?
Stableband is best installed somewhere where it is hanging on its own. This will encourage the flies to land on it to take a break from flying. The supplied hanging bar makes it easy to hand up with some string or a hook.
How long will Stableband stay sticky?
The glue on each Stableband is non-drying, so it will remain sticky until it is completely covered in flies. Once the paper is full simply cut away and roll out the fresh sticky paper.
How can I control flies in my barn?
Flies are always present around horses and keeping them to a minimum benefits both people and the horses. The main thing that will attract flies is horse faeces. Keeping your stables as clean as possible and mucking out often will reduce the amount of food available for the flies, and will naturally reduce the population. Also, keeping your manure pile away from the stables or emptied regularly will reduce the population. For the remaining flies, a trap will be necessary. This comes in many forms and can be an electric light or a sticky trap. Sticky fly paper traps are simple and effective to use and have no running costs. Once it’s full simply dispose of the paper.
How can I keep flies away from my stables?
You will never get rid of every fly around your horses, but you can use a few tactics to keep them at bay. The most direct way to keep flies off your horses is to spray them with a strong insect repellent for horses. There are many on the market so make sure you do some research into which spray will work best for you. The next step is prevention. Keeping your stables clean will dramatically reduce the number of flies. Mucking out on a daily basis reduces the amount of food available in the stables themselves which will then reduce the number of flies. Water is another reason that you may have a lot of flies. Try to keep water from lying around in large amounts as it will attract flies but also other insects that aren’t welcome. Finally, you should avoid letting your muck heap build up. Try to empty it as often as possible or try to spread it thin so that it drys out. This again takes away food for the flies.
