PEST

FlyPunch!

Is FlyPunch! non-toxic?

Yes! FlyPunch! is a non-toxic formula that’s safe near food, people and pets. FlyPunch! qualifies as a FIFRA 25(b) product under the EPA which means it qualifies as ‘minimal risk’.

How do I use FlyPunch!?

Open the DiveJar flip top and remove the seal. Place your jar where fruit flies are most prevalent. For home, it’s typically on a kitchen counter, near the fruit bowl, or near a sink. For commercial use, it can be near sinks, trashcans, liquor storage, dining rooms, near food prep and beyond – both in the front and back of the establishment.

NOTE: Drain flies and gnats look a LOT like fruit flies so it’s easy to mistake one for the other. If you have flies near a drain, please double check to ensure that they are really fruit flies and not drain flies. If you have flies near a potted plant, please check to be sure they are really fruit flies and not gnats.

So what does a fruit fly look like?

Fruit flies can be identified by their red or black eyes and brown bodies. FlyPunch! sometimes catches other fly types that can be mistaken as fruit flies, but those are… bonus points!

Best Fruit Fly Pest Control

How does FlyPunch! work?

FlyPunch utilizes a 3-step process that (1.) Attracts, (2.) Disables, and, (3.) Collects Fruit Flies.

Fruit flies can’t resist the intoxicating mix of FlyPunch! and will leave whatever they are currently munching on to come over to our formula. As soon as fruit flies touch our formula, a disabling agent kicks in. Lastly, the formula breaks down the exoskeleton of the fruit fly and pulls it down to the bottom of the jar. Gross, we know, but oh so glorious!

Has the efficacy of FlyPunch! been lab tested?

Clemson University conducted a research and development study of FlyPunch!. Clemson University’s lab results revealed FlyPunch! is 2400% more effective than DIY vinegar traps and 544% more effective than comparable non-toxic products on the market.

How do I dispose of used FlyPunch!?

Call your local disposal agency, and dispose of it according to local regulations. The FlyPunch! bottle and mountable clips are 100% recyclable.

CLEANING

Cleaning Vinegar

Is Aunt Fannie’s Cleaning Vinegar non-toxic?

Yes, our vinegars are entirely non-toxic! In fact, all ingredients in our cleaning vinegars are food grade, meaning you can clean your countertops AND your veggies!

How do I use cleaning vinegar?

Spray, mist or mop Aunt Fannie’s Cleaning Vinegar products on surfaces in your kitchen, on floors, countertops and windows (vinegar cleans just about anything!). Wipe with a cloth, mop or sponge.

Safety Tip! NEVER mix bleach + vinegar. It produces chlorine gas which even at low levels is majorly toxic.

Are there any surfaces I should think about avoiding with vinegar?

  • Marble countertops can be ‘scratched’ by the naturally occurring acid in vinegar.
  • Just like countertops, natural stone floors don’t always take kindly to acidic cleaners, like vinegar and lemon. Avoid ammonia, too, and stick to cleaning with special stone soap, or dish detergent and water.

How long do Aunt Fannie’s Cleaning Vinegar products stay fresh?

Aunt Fannie’s Cleaning Vinegars are shelf stable for up to 2 years, although we hope you love them so much that you use them much more often!

Is your Floor Cleaner Vinegar Wash Concentrate non-toxic?

Mix ½ cup (4 oz.) of Aunt Fannie’s Floor Cleaner into 2 gallons of water. Soak mop head in solution as appropriate. Repeat as necessary.

What kind of floors can I clean with Aunt Fannie’s Floor Cleaner?

While vinegar can tackle a majority of the household, there are some areas to avoid. Do not use vinegar to clean stone floors. Also, while some wood floors LOVE vinegar, others don’t, so it’s important to test a small inconspicuous spot first before you tackle the whole room.
