Synergetic bulbs- Patented dual peak wavelength! 

Easily recognized by their glowing green light, the range of Synergetic bulbs have been developed to attract a much wider range of flying insects than traditional blue UV lamps.

Based upon a unique phosphor mix, patented technology ensures that a broader ‘two peak’ wavelength is maintained (368nm and 540nm) attracting a wide range of insects including stored product moths, whilst attracting the common housefly as effectively as traditional blue UV tubes, giving you the best of both UV technologies.

Extensive testing has been carried out over many years by independent entomologists and test laboratories, showing the benefits of green light in combination with UV.

A wide diversity of insects were shown to be more attracted to Synergetic light, including greenhouse whiteflies, silverleaf whiteflies, thrips, leafhoppers, Indian meal moths, Mediterranean flour moths, tropical warehouse moths, warehouse moths, plus many more!


How does a flylight work?

Flylights utilize ultraviolet bulbs to attract flying insects into the product, before either zapping them dead on a high voltage killing grid or trapping them on a sticky glueboard. UV bulbs attract flying insects by emitting a wavelength of light attractive to flies. Flying insects are attracted to the bulb which emits UV at a level comparable to that of the sun, which the flying insect has a natural attraction to as a source of heat.

What is shatterproofing?
Shatterproof bulbs provide peace of mind in sensitive areas by retaining glass shards if the bulb is broken. All our ranges can be shatterproofed, ensuring that you can choose your ideal bulb to help you protect even the most sensitive areas, including food preparation and assembly areas. Shatterproof bulbs MUST be installed in areas operating a ‘glass free policy’. The Fluorinated Polymer (FEP) material used for all our sleeving is designed specifically for optical transmission and allows 97% of effective UV light to pass through the coating. As a result, the maximum possible amount of useful UV irradiance passes through the sleeving to effectively attract insects.

With only 3% of the irradiance being absorbed into the material, the structural integrity of the sleeving is maintained for the full 12 month life of the bulb, preventing discolouring and ensuring all glass shards are retained in the event of a breakage. Additionally, all our shatterproof bulbs conform to the IEC61549 ‘Fragment Retention’ standard for areas where this is considered appropriate. Shatterproof bulbs are available by special order.

How often should I change my bulbs and why?

We recommend that UV bulbs are changed every 12 months to ensure maximum efficacy. The levels of UV produced by fluorescent bulbs deteriorate rapidly throughout the life of the bulb. Whilst the bulb will continue to glow blue or green indefinitely, after approximately 8,000 hours the amount of useful UV (Which humans cannot see) drops to a level where it is no longer attractive to flying insects. As a result, UV bulbs must be replaced annually to ensure they remain effective in producing useful levels of UV. This replacement cycle is typically undertaken just before the peak insect season, (March/April within North America) to ensure the flylight is producing the maximum amount of UV throughout the critical insect season.

    Will not work!

    By Ben on 05/18/2020

    Verified Purchase

    I ordered 2 replacement bulbs for my aurora fly traps. I installed one in each of the units and both bulbs burnt out the instant I plugged the units in. Complete waste of money and time.

    Long Life

    By Mary on 12/28/2021

    Live on the Texas Gulf Coaster saw these lamps used in the VA Hospital kitchen I never saw any flys even in the trash. That's what sold me on them. The original lamp lasted 2 1/2 years.well worth the money.

Does the Synergetic Bulb - 22 watt Circline (TGX22) come with an outer layer of plastic/shrink wrap?

I ordered a bulb from another source on EBAY and it came this way. (never again). I removed the plastic and it seemed like it held the internal seal of the bulb together. It popped and then didn't work. I wanted to double check before ordering a new bulb from DoMyOwn which sells authentic product. Thanks for confirming.


No, the Synergetic Bulb - 22 watt Circline (TGX22) does not come with any plastic covering.
