With increased frequency, pest controllers will be asked to install UV fly control units in hazardous areas, potentially explosive areas in particular.
Especially at this time of the year, it is important to consider whether the fly control units, for which you are responsible in your facilities, are performing to the best of their ability. Are the fluorescent lamps producing optimum levels of ultraviolet light? Are the sticky boards still capable of retaining any insect which lands upon them?
Are you tired of having pest control equipment that don’t fit your business’s style? You want to keep your hotel lobby, bar or restaurant looking stylish and neat and defeat the flying pests at the same time? Our engineers not only have a great technical understanding but also imagination! And the best part is – you get to be your own designer of pest control unit (or of UV fly control unit). See the unlimited options they have prepared for you!
We have created some fab new videos for you and your customers to see. These great, fun cartoons clearly explain why having fly control units within business is very important- especially in the food industry.
It can be confusing indeed when one dives into the diversity of units and applications that PestWest offers for a multitude of different users. The challenge can be even bigger when it comes to find the perfect combination of units to control flying insects in hotel premises.
You ask, we answer: Do all fly traps of identical lamp wattage have the same fly control efficiency?pestwest
There are now many choices out there in the marketplace and sometimes it can make choosing the right trap for a given situation more difficult. Sometimes pest controllers and users may think that they just need for example a 30 watt fly trap for a normal situation, such as in a kitchen or restaurant. There are however differences between brands and models, and the efficacy of a trap in terms of catching flying insects and the efficiency of the trap in terms of electrical consumption are often overlooked. When installing electronic fly traps in greater numbers, the electrical efficiency of the traps should not be ignored because the savings to the end user can be quite considerable. We only have to look at general lighting to see how LED’s (Light Emitting Diodes) have totally taken over the market in such a very short period of time, which is 100% driven by energy savings.
After reviewing the most common technical issues with electronic sticky traps it is time to give some attention to the electronic fly killers. These pest control units attract flying insects onto a high voltage killing grid to eradicate them. Like every equipment, electronic fly killers need attention and care in order to perform to their best ability and be durable. But there is nothing to worry about – as you will see, many of the most common technical issues are not of severe nature and can be quickly and easily resolved.
A perfect killer will stand in the rain for hours to do the assigned job and is strong enough to eliminate multiple targets within 160m². A perfect killer wears black and doesn’t stand out from a common street lamp. Its name? Titan 200 IP. We prepared a short video for you to help you through the process of installation and servicing. Soon you will see, that shortly after opening the transportation box, the Titan 200 IP can be left alone to do what it does best – killing flies… whatever the weather!
