Insect Light Traps
Insect Light Traps
Every now and then, one might notice swarms of flies, moths, and other flying insects crowded around a light source. Generally, flying insects will approach a UV light thinking that it is actually natural sunlight. Manufacturers are aware of this curious characteristic that numerous pests share and therefore created multiple light traps that one can use to eliminate any nearby, annoying infestations. By producing a myriad of differently designed light traps, manufacturers have provided consumers with a large variety of products to utilize in numerous different environments and conditions. Whether the unwelcome guests are indoors or outdoors, in large numbers or small, or in commercial or residential areas, the light traps offered here at Pest Mall will effectively kill them.
Benefits of Using an Insect Light Trap
Thankfully, insect light traps are a chemical-free alternative to pest control, making them easily accessible by virtually anyone who may need to control flying pests. Due to the fact that insects are attracted to UV light (which most lights emit), the light traps are highly effective in luring them to their electrifying deaths. In addition, most of the insect light traps that Pest Mall offer come equipped with glue boards to prevent any unwanted bugs from falling out onto clean surfaces. These glue boards act as a backup trap and cleaner to snare any stray insects that managed to maneuver around the UV lights.
Our insect light traps come in a myriad of different designs, colors, shapes, and sizes to ensure that the customer purchases the one ideal for his/her infestation. For indoor infestations, we provide discreet insect light traps, disguised to resemble household lamps, that still effectively kill pests without showing any obvious visual evidence of it. In comparison, for outdoor infestations, we exhibit bulkier, larger UV light traps that will cover larger areas and still keep the dead bugs from falling out.
In addition, insect light traps last for extensively long periods of time due to their low-maintenance design. As long as the UV light bulbs and glue boards are replaced regularly as instructed by the label, light traps will retain their effectiveness. However, the ones used outdoors tend to need replacement bulbs and glue boards more frequently since they are prone to abnormal weather conditions and animal tampering.
Where to Place the Insect Light Trap
Depending on where the infestation is located, the placement and how the insect light trap is used will vary. When using the light trap indoors, place it in the largest area available (such as the living room) or where the infestation seems heaviest. For outdoor infestations, place the light trap away from where one does not want the pests to be, up to the distance it will cover. In order to situate the insect light trap in the premium spot, refer to the directions or label and distinguish how much area will be covered.
Unfortunately, light traps alone may not be enough to completely eliminate all the pests located in the area. However, with proper placement and routine replacement of the glue pads, one can observe optimal results. Because it is so essential to place light traps properly, please feel free to contact a Pest Mall Professional at 1-800-788-4142.
