Interesting facts about Flies:
Common House Fly:
The common House Fly
is a prime disease carrier and can travel up to 5 miles in one day in search of food. Common house flies are strongly attracted to UVA and green light except during the first few days after emerging from pupation. Food lures and sex pheromone traps are also strong attractants.
Lesser House Fly:
Similar to the common house fly, lesser house flies have more slender bodies and a more hovering and jerky pattern of flight. Although less common, this species is not strongly attracted to UVA light so other methods of control should be used.
This fly species is attracted to fermenting fruit and is a particular nuisance to the brewing industry. UVA and green light are attractants for flies except those less than 4 days old, so other defences will be required.
Other variations in behaviour among flies:
Male flies migrate and are strongly attracted to pheromones. Older flies have a preference for looking for landing sites in order to mate. Hungry or unfed flies, however, will be more attracted to food. Responsiveness to light will also also vary between species and at certain times of the day.
How does a fly killer work?
Fly killers utilise ultraviolet tubes to attract flying insects into the product, before either zapping them dead on a high voltage killing grid or trapping them on a sticky glueboard. UV tubes attract flying insects by emitting a wavelength of light attractive to flies, between 350 – 368nm. Flying insects are attracted to the tube which emits UV at a level comparable to that of the sun, which the flying insect has a natural attraction to as a source of heat.
Which Fly Killer should I install?
-Choosing the appropriate electric fly killer
for your application will help ensure your environment is correctly protected from flying insects. Each fly killer has a recommended coverage area based upon UV light output, specification and design. As a general rule, zapper fly killers are ideal for back room areas with high numbers of flying insects, whilst glueboard units are appropriate for sensitive applications such as food preparation areas. Front of house and domestic areas often require a decorative solution, providing discreet but effective insect control.
-In commercial applications, electric fly killers should be supplemented with preventative barrier protection, in the form of insect control chains, screens and insecticide to repel and stop the insect entering your premises.
Where should I install my electric fly killer?
The UV light emitted from the tubes attracts flying insects to the electric fly killer, so it is important to ensure that the UV light can be seen from all areas of the room to be protected. As such, Electric fly killers should ideally be mounted at least 2m above ground level, providing a increased opportunity for the fly to be attracted to the UV light. Position the electric fly killer on the opposite wall to sources of natural light such as doors, windows and skylights, which may provide competition to the UV tubes in attracting flying insects. The UV tubes should be visible from every part of the area to be protected, so give extra thought to complex areas with pillars, beams and other obstacles. In particularly complex or large areas, two or more fly killers may be required to ensure appropriate protection against flying insects.
Electric Fly Killer Replacement Bulbs:
Please note that electric fly killer
bulbs are only effective for approximately a year and should be replaced every year to maximise their UV effectiveness. The reason all bulbs lose their effectiveness is that the UV coating in the bulb simply wares away over approximately a year with normal regular use. We stock Fly Killer Bulbs
for all UK models.
