Fly Light Traps AucklandUltraviolet fly light traps are safe, efficient, and powerful. As a substitute for toxic chemical sprays, flies find them irresistible. It is an insect trap that uses powerful ultraviolet rays to attract flies and other pests. 

UV Fly Light Traps are perfect for use in settings where you don’t want chemicals. In particular, where discreet, low profile Fly Control Auckland Service is needed, such as kitchens, restaurants, or shopfronts.


Two Basic Types of Fly Light Traps:

  • Ultraviolet Pheromone Traps attract flies using ultraviolet rays. Instead of electrocution, the fly gets stuck on a removable glue strip. Furthermore, glue strips utilise attractants to further nuisance flies that are not as readily attracted to UV light. This model is indeed appropriate for most public and food settings.
  • Fly Zappers are what also people utilise in warehouses. However, they are not generally suitable for residential and commercial areas. Significantly where fly body parts might fall into food.


UV Fly Light Traps Advantages

  • Ultraviolet rays are harmless to people or pets, unlike toxic chemicals.
  • No unpleasant odours.
  • Powerful UV light provides optimum coverage.
  • UV rays draw in a wide range of flying insects, not just flies.
  • Several UV fly traps look like regular light fixtures. Also, making them suitable for discreet control in public venues.


UV Fly Light Traps Recommendation

  • Choosing the right site for this type of device is critical and should be carefully considered before installation. Also, when installing, be sure to install it away from sensitive areas. This will help draw flies away from customers and food products. Fly lights should also be away from doors and windows. This could potentially attract flies from the outdoors.
  • It is indeed necessary to perform routine maintenance on your fly light trap.
  • You must change glue boards that are dusty or full of dead insects and check them every week.
  • It would be best if you replace the UV light bulbs on the scheduled dates. Usually every four to six months.
  • Over time, the UV rays become weak and will no longer be attractive to flies. Thus, read the instruction guide to determine the complete maintenance for each device.
