The instructions on the product are faulty. You cannot put it anywhere. You can't allow non-target wildlife to access it. That makes the product unable to use outside. It attracts insects. Those insects get stuck on it and birds who eat insects get stuck on the trap. They made these traps too sticky. They should have used less sticky glue such as the ones on fly strips. Even then fly strips kill non-target animals. They sell this in the US at WalMart and many other stores.
Below are the instructions on the product.

Here are the instructions. It says don't place it anywhere where children, pets or birds can come in contact with it. That's ridiculous. You'd have to only place it indoors for birds not to be able to contact it. The company knows damn well it will attracts birds that eat insects outdoors.
