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.

This item works a little too well in fact. The little sticky traps are covered so I actually need to order more! They work well because you are able to push them as far down into the pot as you need to unlike other traps you would just hang in the general area. They seem to be helping control our gnat problem though I would recommend a pesticide to go along with them. The sticky paper helps cut down on the number of flying adults but eggs still exist in the pot that need to be taken care of as well.
