Ultraviolet Fly Traps
There are various types of traps used in the control and elimination of nuisance house flies, fruit flies or other fly
pests. Pheromone traps use sexual attractants to lure flies to sticky pads or into a
liquid trap. Older models of light traps incorporated standard light bulbs.
This type of light does attract insects but not as well as traps that use ultraviolet
lights. Many insects are attracted to ultraviolet but the main use of this type of
trap is in fly control. Ultraviolet rays emitted by professional traps are not
harmful to people or pets. The power or effective range of an ultraviolet fly trap
is determined by the power or wattage of the bulbs, the number of bulbs and (most
importantly) the physical configuration of the trap. Low profile traps used in
dining areas of restaurants and homes normally do not emit the same amount of UV rays as
professional traps used in food preparation areas, receiving areas and warehouses.
Our line of ultraviolet traps are designed for optimum coverage, resulting in more
powerful traps for better fly control.
Fly Trap - Use as many as four 25 watt bulbs or as few
Visu Fly Trap - Available in 30 watt and 80 watt traps.
There are two basic types of ultraviolet insect traps: those that electrocute bugs and those that capture bugs on replaceable sticky pads or glue traps. Our capture pads are impregnated with a pheromone that helps attract those difficult to control nuisance flies.
Ultraviolet Lighted Fly Traps
Flies (and other bugs) find these ultraviolet rays irresistible. Our lighted insect traps incorporate pheromones and ultraviolet to capture nuisance flies. For most residential and business applications, fly zappers (traps which electrocute bugs) should not be used. In food handling areas of restaurants or food processing plants, insect body parts might fall into food if fly zappers are used. For those areas where a heavy-duty fly zapper unit is needed (in non-food areas) use on of our commercial flying insect zappers. Most flies are attracted to this light but there are certain flies (such as the vinegar fly) that are not. The pheromones in our capture pads will lure flies that might not be attracted to ultraviolet. By using ultraviolet and pheromones, you greatly increase your chances of killing the pests in any given area.
