Bulbs should be replaced at least every 8
to 9 months to keep you light as effective as possible
Use in areas of high fly activity
inside doorways and docks. Flies are attracted indoors by food odors, warm air
and light coming from doorways, windows, roof vents and other openings in
Place traps 5 to 15 feet inside a
door or dock opening. Gusts of wind and breezes push small insects inside
You should aim the U.V. light into
the building so that it cannot be seen from outside. We do not want to attract
flying insects inside the building because they can see an Insect Light Trap.
This is a simple mistake to avoid.
Space light traps 25 to 50 feet
apart on the inside of exterior wall lines. The number of lights used will vary
based on (a) insect pressure, (b) desired control level, and (c) viewability of
light traps into all areas or hallways. Traps only work if they can be seen.
Wall placement of light traps is
preferred. Traps located 3 to 6 feet above the floor are closer to where filth
flies spend most of their time feeding and laying eggs.
