  • Get Rid of Fruit Flies with Bar Maid Fly-Bye Products

The FLY-BYE™ line of products from Bar Maid Corporation gives the restaurant and bar industry effective tools to help control fruit flies.

Bar Maid Fly Bye Fruit Fly TrapsFruit flies are not just a nuisance; they are a major sanitation issue for bars and restaurants. Also called drosophila flies, vinegar flies or wine flies, they often find their way into even the cleanest commercial kitchens and bars by hitchhiking on produce and just a few can quickly become an established breeding colony. Fruit flies love ripened fruits and vegetables as well as fermented beverages, liquor, beer and wine. They also breed in floor drains, bottles and cans, trash and recycling containers… virtually any damp area with spillage or attractive residues.

FLY-BYE Fruit Fly Traps utilize a powerful 2-part, food-based attractant to entice fruit flies into a trap where they are unable to escape. The traps contain no VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and are non-toxic, so they can be used anywhere at any time, including food preparation or storage areas of the kitchen, near the bar fruit and condiment caddy, or next to garbage cans. Use each trap up to 30 days and then dispose of it in the trash or recycling bin.

“The FLY-BYE line is really a group of products that, along with good sanitation practices, work together to combat the reproduction of fruit flies,” said George Shepherd, owner and President of Bar Maid Corporation. “The last thing you want are customers bedeviled and swatting at buzzing fruit flies while sitting in your bar or restaurant.”


Underneath the soda or beer tap drip tray is a prime habitat for fruit flies. The Beer Drip Tray Conditioning Strip from Bar Maid is a product placed under the grate that minimizes clogged drains and controls odors that attract fruit flies. Each strip lasts 21-90 days.

Bar Maid has a variety of solutions to keep liquor pourers and beer taps sanitary and free of fruit flies and other bugs. All are Made in the USA.

The Beer Tap Cap is a plastic cap that fits over the end of the tap faucet.

Flip-Top Premium Pour Measured Liquor Pourers feature a small, hinged top that opens when pouring and closes when not in use to prevent bugs from entering. These liquor pourers are offered in four popular shot sizes and four colors. Whiskygate Screened Liquor Pourers are a 3-count pourer with a screen inside to keep bugs out.

Whiskeygate Pourer Caps, Betterway Universal Dust Covers and Kover-All Universal Dust Caps all slide over the end of liquor pourers when not in use.
