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.
