Fly paper or tape?

Post by Kermie16 » Sat Jan 28, 2017 6:44 pm

Found what looks like a gnat in the tank. Wondering if there is a recommendation for the brand of fly paper or tape to use? Right now I just have some double stick foam in the tank on the under side of the versatop hinged glass topper. I went to the store today but all I found was fly ribbon?? Is that the same thing? Also, is this fairly easy to get off of the glass top when no longer needed? Thanks!

This is what I would use. Don't use the green post. Just use the yellow tape, and use a piece of scotch tape to adhere it to your glass top. https://www.amazon.com/Safer-Houseplant ... =gnat+tape
