Back in 1885, the Thum brothers started making flypaper using a unique and super-effective adhesive that they created from castor oils, resin and wax. This flypaper proved to be what the public wanted and, in 1923, their company officially became known as The Tanglefoot Company. Over the years, the need for flypaper has waned but the demand for non-toxic pest control solutions has grown and Tanglefoot continues to provide a first-rate solution.
