Every once an a while we have a fly or two that we can't seem to get rid of. They'll fly around the kitchen and make their way to our customers' heads at the bar which is more than embarrassing. Since installing this fly light right next to the kitchen line and by the door to the dining room we no longer have problems. After just being up a month the glue board shows enough evidence to prove this fly trap works. Not only does it catch the common fly, it catches anything that flies for that matter.
My company has 9 of these lights in place as part of our IPM plan. Been using them for over 3 years now with no problems at all. I would recommend this light to anyone looking for a well made light trap.
Does the Mantis 1x2 Fly Light work well to eliminate fruit flies?
We have a winery and are looking for a solution to eliminate fruit flies during fruit processing
Yes, the Mantis 1x2 Fly LIght works very well with all types of flying insects, including fruit flies. All you need to do is make sure that there's not a lot of light competition and position 3-6 feet from the floor, especially in an area of high activity. You will need to use multiple lights in larger areas or areas of high insect pressure.
Can this trap be used to catch larder beetles ? If so, can it be placed in an unfinished basement ?
Larder beetles generally feed on meat and various food sources. They would not be attracted to a fly light. We would recommend disgarding all the food that has been infested. We would recommend using Cy-Kick Aerosol around the baseboards and cracks and crevices in your home. You could also use pheromone traps.
