Flykillers & Fly Killing Units
Fly-killers are electrically operated wall or ceiling mounted units that emit
ultra-violet light, which attracts flying insects.
Ultra-violet (UV) lights are used to attract insects over the other lighting
in an area.
They are safer to use than sprays or insecticides as spray particles or
residues can settle on foods, surfaces and people where they are used as
well as being inhaled.
A flykiller is essential in food premises to capture flying insects which have
managed to enter.
The old faithful and ever popular 'fly
zapper'. These use Ultraviolet lamps to
attract flying insects into the machine where
they are killed instantaneously by a highly
charged electric killing grid. The flies fall into
a catchment tray underneath the grid
Glueboard fly killers are more popular for
sensitive areas such as above food
preparation areas or eating areas. The flies
are again attracted into the unit by the
Ultraviolet lamps where they become
attached to a pheromone and insecticide
impregnated board where they die and are
held attahced by the strong adhesive.
