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.
For front end units (those fly traps to be placed in public areas) use the Ultralite Fly Trap, a 30 watt "discreet" unit for capturing flying insects in areas you do no want the public or clients seeing the captured insects.
For fly infested areas where the public will not see your traps, use one of the following:

Matrix Fly Trap - Use as many as four 25 watt bulbs or as few as one.
Most versatile fly trap available.

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 Commercial Ultraviolet Fly Zappers

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.
