FLY TRAPS CANNOT BE SHIPPED TO AK, HI, WA.
There are various types of fly traps used in the control and elimination of nuisance house flies, fruit flies or other flying 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.  The older type of lighted fly trap 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.  These traps are more desirable than sprays for indoor fly control.
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 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 fly traps are designed for optimum coverage, resulting in more powerful traps for better fly control.

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 Fly Traps FLY TRAPS CANNOT BE SHIPPED TO AK, HI, WA.
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. 
Most flies are attracted to this UV 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.

These traps zap or electrocute insects that are attracted by the ultraviolet lights.  Choose a model that best suits the size and type of environment you have. 


Replacement Pads Capture pads (fly trap glue boards) are designed to withstand UV rays without melting or degrading.  Replace these inexpensive pads on a regularly scheduled maintenance program (if you have numerous fly traps to monitor and maintain) or when they become too full to effectively capture any additional insects.
Never use glue traps designed for capturing rodents in an ultraviolet fly trap.  Rodent glue will melt when exposed to UV rays meant to attract flying insects.  Once the glue melts into the electronic trap, the trap is ruined and must be replaced.

Replacement Bulbs Even if light seems to look the same as new, UV bulbs should be replaced about once each year.  The exact UV wave seen by insects will begin to fade or waver from original wave as bulb ages.  For optimum results, replace bulbs every twelve months. Schools, prisons or other correctional facilities and some commercial food processing plants require or highly recommend shatterproof bulbs.
