For over 20 years, EnviroSafe has been manufacturing fly traps that not only operate effectively without harsh chemicals but have been specifically designed for the Australian climate - and all the annoying flies that come with it!
It’s not uncommon to have flies buzzing around when you’re trying to spend time outdoors, whether it be at a barbecue, playing sports, or spending time in the garden. However, flies are not only annoying but can also be harmful and spread disease. That’s why EnviroSafe has designed its range of Australian Made products to efficiently trap flies and European wasps so that you can make the most of Australia’s balmy evenings and hot days.
EnviroSafe was founded in Western Australia with its original fly trap design and bait. Using a patented mix of non-toxic, food-grade ingredients, the baits are irresistible to flies but safe around people and pets. The trap itself is structured in a way that prevents the flies from escaping once caught, allowing flies to be drawn away from your living area without the need for toxic pesticides. Unlike similar products on the market, the traps can be used over and over again! Simply bury the caught flies and non-toxic bait in the soil and re-bait the trap.
“Our fly bait and trap are mixed and manufactured right here in Australia to the highest standard, using quality ingredients,” EnviroSafe Chief Customer Experience Officer, Matt Carey says. “Australians have high expectations of quality and safety, and manufacturing our products here gives consumers confidence that they are purchasing a quality product. The ability to visit suppliers and manufacturers in person allows us to closely monitor the manufacturing process more easily, so we can ensure that our products are of the highest quality.”
“By manufacturing our products in Australia, EnviroSafe has been able to develop strong links with our local communities and provide jobs for locals. As a business that values quality, sustainability, and our community, EnviroSafe is incredibly proud for its products to be certified Australian Made and to be investing in local manufacturing.”
Another benefit to EnviroSafe’s local manufacturing is its partnership with social enterprises, Endeavour Foundation and WorkPower, which provide meaningful and continued employment for people with an intellectual disability. “We enjoy a wonderful relationship with our partners who create our traps,” Matt says. “These dedicated staff take great pride in carefully assembling the parts and then packaging them into boxes ready for distribution, and they do a great job.”
The EnviroSafe product range recently expanded to include a new trap for the introduced pest species; European Wasp. Known for hanging around meat and sweet drinks at picnics or barbecues, European Wasps are dangerous pests that can sting multiple times and even cause life-threatening allergic reactions. Developed over several years, the new European wasp trap and eco-bait from EnviroSafe uses food-grade ingredients to attract the pest and trap them effectively and safely.
EnviroSafe proudly displays the Australian Made logo on its products, linking it with consumer trust and expectations of high standards. “The Australian Made logo is the gold standard,” Matt says. “It gives EnviroSafe customers confidence in knowing that their products are locally made, that their production supports local industries and are made to Australia’s high safety and quality standards.”
“Buying Australian Made products supports Australian local producers and businesses at many different levels. It employs Australians in a wide range of jobs – not just those directly involved in the manufacture of the product but also those involved in packaging industries, transport, sales, marketing, customer service and other areas of business. It’s important that people continue to buy locally-made products to support the Australian economy and build Australia’s future.”
