Safety Products

Please be sure to read the product label of any insecticide you choose to use to get information on the personal protective safety gear you will need. In most situations, it is recommended that you wear long pants, a long sleeved shirt, closed toe shoes with socks, chemical resistant gloves, and goggles. In areas where ventilation is poor, a manufacturer may recommend you wear a mask or a respirator. We have put together two different safety kits that will make selecting the correct safety gear easier for you.

Fly Zappers

By DoMyOwn staff

What is an Electric Fly Zapper?

A Fly Zapper is one kind of Ultraviolet Fly Trap that uses powerful ultraviolet rays to attract flies and then electrocutes them to death on contact. The dead insects are collected in easy to clean catch pans. Ideal for factories, warehouses, processing plants, and storerooms where public visibility is not a concern-- effective, powerful Fly Zappers provide extensive coverage without the use of toxic chemicals.

When To Use Electric Fly Zappers

Electric Fly Zappers are ideal for use in areas requiring extensive coverage, and where public visibility is not an issue (such as factories, warehouses, processing plants, storerooms, etc.). Fly Zappers are not generally appropriate for residential areas, business applications, or food-preparation areas where fly body parts might fall into food.

Benefits of Fly Zappers

1) Ultraviolet rays are not harmful to people or pets, unlike toxic chemicals.

2) No unpleasant odors.

3) Powerful ultraviolet light provides for optimum coverage.

4) Ultraviolet rays attract a wide range of flying insects, not just flies.

5) Various models may provide coverage anywhere from 1,300 to 3,200 sq ft.

What if I need a trap for a residential, business, or food-preparation area?

Ultraviolet Pheromone (Glue) Traps are another kind of Ultraviolet Fly Trap that can be used in areas of high public traffic and food settings. UV Pheromone Traps also attract flies using ultraviolet rays, but instead of electrocution, the fly gets stuck on a removable glue strip. Some glue strips utilize pheromones to further attract nuisance flies that are not as readily attracted to the ultraviolet light. Although it is not as powerful as the Fly Zapper, there are many models of UV Pheromone Traps designed to look like ordinary wall fixtures, for more discreet control.
