    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    Is there an odor?
    The bait itself does not have a odor. There may be an odor as the trapped flies begin to decompose. The best procedure is to change the trap a bit more frequently. Alternatively, just pour some more water into the trap and this will help to minimize the odor –- and it will increase the life of the bait by another week or so.
    They are really putrid smelling
    Someone's not telling the whole truth...

    But, it makes sense- the worse it smells, the more it attracts. Might have to get my mother a couple of those...

    Please try to remember- I have a very dry sense of humor. It usually sounds mean, but isn't meant to be.

    Initially, the are not rank smelling. Not pleasant, a wee bit unpleasant, but not putrid.

    After some flies get trapped, and the sun up here warms up the liquids............well.............standard poodles think it smells swell

    I am surprised we've never had a bear get into it.

    BTW, they work really well.

    I figured it was the dead fly smell; wouldn't expect the bait to be putrid. Just the carcasses.
