For use: Warm tube in hands if it is very cold to facilitate removal of the ribbon. Remove the thumbtack and place it in a secure position for later use. Hold the red loop and pull down the tube slowly with a twirling motion until the ribbon is fully exposed. Hang the ribbon by placing the thumbtack through the red loop and place anywhere flies are a nuisance. Placement of ribbon: Flies are sensitive to light, temperature and humidity. If no insects are caught within 2 or 3 days, move the ribbon to another location (further from or closer to a window, etc). Disposal of ribbon: To discard, wrap used ribbon securely in newspaper, paper or plastic bag and dispose of in trash receptacle. To remove adhesive from hands, use soap and water.
