The Gilbert 2000GT is the popular decorative fly light that is perfect for catching flies in restaurants and more personal areas while remaining as discreet as possible.

The No-Wall-Fade design won't fade or yellow walls. Available in polished brass or white vinyl-coated aluminum. Comes with two 20 watt bulbs.
Each flylight comes with light bulb(s) and one glue board(s) already installed.
The Gilbert 2000 GT "secretly" provides you with 24 hour fly management. The Gilbert 2000 GT is designed to look like a wall sconce making it an elegant addition to any room. The Gilbert 2000 GT also has the "No-Wall-Fade"TMdesign thatwon't fade or yellow your wall, like competitor's designs. The Gilbert 2000 GT also is designed to hold a standard 17" x 5" glue board.

Both versions of the Gilbert 2000 GT fly lights are available in two beautiful finishes: Polished Brass or White vinyl-coated aluminum.

Bulbs should be replaced every 6 months to be most effective. Glue boards should be changed every 30-60 days. Glue boards may need to be changed more often in high infestation areas.
In dealing with a serious fly and other flying pest issue in our aircraft hangar I looked at several options including the Gilbert 2000GT Flying Venus. My order was placed promptly and delivery was quick. The lights were easy to install and look very good in the hangar. They look more like art deco lights than pest control devices and I have received several compliments on their look. There are only two negatives that I can bring up but both are manageable and are not defects in the product. 1) They do not cover a very large area so if they are in an area with a lot of pests, they tend to fill up very quickly. I am having to change out the sticky boards almost daily which tends to be pricey in sticky board costs. Proof that they work! 2) Although they are primarily "fly lights", they attract all kinds of flying pests and the larger insects: moths, etc. do not get stuck on the boards but rather tend to just hang out around and on the fixtures. These pests are easily vacuumed up as they are concentrated in one area but labor intensive none-the-less.
All in all, I would recommend this product and may opt to purchase a few more to handle to pest load. Overall the Gilbert 2000GT offers great value. Good bang for the buck!
How many amps does the 2002GT Flying Venus fly trap need?
The Gilbert 2000GT Flying Venus Fly Light draws 43 watts of energy. To calculate the amperage draw, you will need to divide the watts (43) by the total number of volts available from your electrical outlet.
I was wondering how large of a space will one Gilbert 2000GT Flying Venus fly light cover?
When it comes to how large of a space a fly light will cover, the fly manufacturers will tell you there is no way to determine that. Here is a installation summary directly from Gilbert, the company that makes the Gilbert 2000GT Flying Venus:
"File any published "area covered" claims in your wastebasket. At best, they are, generalized, rules of thumb. At worst, they are misleading advertising. They certainly shouldn't be used to compare traps. It is nonsense to say any flytrap will control insects within "X" square feet of space (even indoors) without, at least, specifying the species of insects concerned, the type and condition of the facility, the surrounding environment, and management's level of concern. The distance at which an insect responds is determined by lamp type and trap design, of course, but also by the number, visual acuity, and nature of the specific insect."
We recommend purchasing one fly light and after installation and how it controls your situation determine if you may need additional lights.
