Golden Malrin is not labeled and not legal for use indoors in homes. Period. Here are the label directions, which are also attached to the container. I did not read anywhere on our website that said it could be used indoors, so I am sorry for any misunderstanding.
Golden Malrin Fly Bait is designed to be used as a "Scatter Bait" and scattered around the outside of buildings, on sidewalks, etc, or used in a fly bait station such as the EZ Strike Fly Bait Station.
As far as the "attractant" in Golden Malrin, it is a fly "pheromone" that "encourages" flies to stay in the area, thereby increasing the chance that they will feed on it. There is no magic attractant that will draw them to it in seconds or minutes. They simply have to find it, just like any other bait or food source.
The best fly control indoors is CB 80. Simply direct it at the fly, and spray it. It's made from natural pyrethrum and kills flies in seconds. You can kill a single fly, or you can fog your entire house and kill all the flies. Just leave the area for a few minutes after spraying and if when you return you smell anything, just open the door or window and let it air out (hopefully more flies won't come back in).
We also recommend the Fly Web Fly Trap. Just plug it in. It attracts and captures flies 24/7. Replace the sticky glue traps when it gets full.
Outdoors, the Flies Be Gone Fly Trap is powerful at trapping flies. BEWARE - place it away from the house. It will have a strong smell. It will also attract a lot of flies. Don't attract them to the house - attract them away.
You can also use the YARD FOG, to help control flies, mosquitoes and flying insects. I keep a can around and fog at night when the wind is low.
Other than this, you can spray the yard with Bifenthrin or any insecticide and that will help to kill flies and repel them.
There are no easy or magic ways to kill and get rid of flies. A fly can smell food, trash, etc from miles away.
Hope this helps.
