Bend the flaps of the pointed end of the strips as shown. This will make it easier to insert the stake into the soil. Alternatively, you can hang the strips from the plant itself.
Peel off the clear plastic sheets on either side of the plastic strip, exposing the adhesive.
Place the strip into the soil at the base of the plant.
To dispose of used strips, wrap in newspaper and dispose in the trash.

All my African violets became infested this summer with an insect somewhat like a fruit fly and Sticky Stakes are catching them by the hundreds. I highly recommend this product for ease of use and effectiveness.
Gets the mold gnats March 14, 2010
Reviewer: Dave in Oxford
This winter there has been a virtual plague of mold gnats in our house plants. The Sticky Stakes have been the only way I've found to control them.They really work.
The only problem is they catch so many gnats that I have to keep changing them. That's the kind of problem I can put up with.
