Shopping for RESCUE! Products Online?



Scammers are becoming more prevalent in online retail stores, making it difficult to know if the products you ordered are authentic.

Here are some tips to help you shop for RESCUE! products with confidence.


Trust Your Gut

If a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is. A listing advertising 12 Fly Traps for the price of one? Probably a scam. If things just don’t seem right, it’s best to steer clear. 

Avoid Sketchy Websites

Avoid purchasing RESCUE! Products from any of the following websites, as they are likely to be counterfeit: eBay, TEMU, AliExpress, Wish, Mercari, Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist.

Compare Prices

If you want to avoid overpaying for your RESCUE! products, be on the lookout for drop-shippers. Drop-shippers make money by selling products on one marketplace at a high markup and then forwarding the orders to a different marketplace selling the same product at a lower price.

Check the Seller

Online retailers like and are marketplaces, which means many different sellers can sell the same product. Most sites give you a way to learn more about the seller. On Amazon, look for “Sold By” and click on the seller's name to find the seller's details.

Avoid ordering from sellers who:

  • Have a poor rating
  • Have a low number of reviews (or no reviews).

Spotting Counterfeits

We have recently identified new counterfeit fly traps that are very difficult to tell apart from authentic RESCUE! Fly Traps.



The easiest way to tell if your Fly Trap is authentic is to look at the bait pouch. The bait pouch in these counterfeit traps is dark red and looks very different from the bait pouch in an authentic RESCUE! trap.
