Best Overall Fly Trap
Our favorite traps are those that hide flies away and allow you to clean them without touching any of the yuckiness. The Zevo Indoor Flying Insect Trap works by attracting flies with a mix of UV and blue LED lights, then the adhesive backing on the unit captures them without the use of chemical insecticides or odors. Use the plug-in traps wherever you need to keep flies at bay — entryways, enclosed patios, garages, kitchens or bathrooms.
Best Window Fly Trap
Catch those pests with easy-to-apply window strips. These transparent traps use specially designed glue to catch the flies and blend right into the window so they can't be seen by you or the flies. Bonus: Once the strips are removed, they won't leave behind a sticky residue — your window stays clean. Plus, they're odorless, non-toxic and eco-friendly.
Best Fly Trap for Large Spaces
No zapping or buzzing here. The UV bulb in the Dynatrap FlyLight has a wavelength that attracts flying insects, and then the Sticky Tech Glue Card (three cards included) traps them discreetly behind the unit. Simply plug the trap into an outlet to cover up to 600 square feet. Don't worry: There's an additional outlet on the trap, so you don't have to sacrifice your power source.

Best Sconce Fly Trap
Effective and efficient, this trap uses a UV light to lure in flying insects, silently capturing and killing them without a single popping noise. Each night, leave the sconce on as the only light to attract any insect that's found its way inside. The best part? The design keeps all the pests hidden from view.
Best Budget Fly Trap
For less than just $3, you can stop those annoying flies right in their tracks. The Raid Fly Ribbons are easy to use and feature no insecticides or chemical odors, making them safe around children and pets. Each sticky ribbon traps over 100 flies and can last up to three months. Best of all? The traps come pre-baited with a food-base lure, so all you have to do is assemble them and hang them wherever needed with the included thumbtacks.
Best Discreet Fly Trap
Small but mighty, the Safer Home Indoor Fly Trap starts working immediately when plugged in and can be rotated to fit any indoor outlet. And, because the glue card isn't transparent, the trapped insects are hidden out of sight until disposal.
Best LED Fly Trap
Keep your home insect-free with the Brison Indoor Bug Zapper. LED bulbs attract the critters, which then get zapped by the electric coil. However, you get to keep your hands clean of any mess. The removable collection tray gives you no-touch disposal, and the trap is free of chemicals and poisons, making it a safe addition to your home.
Cutest Fly Trap
Fly traps are not known for their attractiveness, but this petite plug-in hides the mess behind an adorable cloud shape. Safe to use in areas with pets and kids, the nightlight/fly trap is completely odorless and doesn't use any chemicals.
Best Fly Trap With Night Light
UVA light attracts flying insects such as flies, mosquitos and moths to the Mosalogic Flying Insect Trap and kills them without any noise. The trap features two light modes: smart mode and night mode. In smart mode, the machine will detect light to automatically turn it on and off, emitting a soft blue hue. In night mode, the light will stay on until turned off manually, emitting a soft yellow hue.
Best UV Fly Trap
Like the other plug-in traps on our list, the Gardner FlyWeb Fly Light uses light to attract flying insects. The nine-watt UV light lures pests without the use of harmful chemicals. Once trapped, the bugs stay hidden on the back of the glue card. The discreet design takes up little space and protects rooms up to 600 square feet.

The petite stakes feature non-toxic and effective sticky strips that attract insects like a magnet.
