FAQs for Electric Fly Killer products
How does an electric fly killer work?
Electric fly killers work by attracting flies and other flying insects with a UV light, then delivering a lethal electric shock when the insects come into contact with the electric grid inside the unit. The dead flies and insects are then collected in a tray, basket, or compartment for easy disposal.
Do electric fly killers consume a lot of energy?
Most electric fly zappers are quite energy-efficient. They use low-energy UV bulbs to attract insects and generally consume less power than a standard light bulb. They still output bright ultraviolet light, however, and the exact energy consumption can vary depending on the model and usage.
Are there different types of electric fly killers available?
Yes, we offer a variety of electric fly killers suitable for various applications, including commercial premises and home use. Wherever you need to lure flies, trap, and kill flies, our range is designed to suit different environments and needs.
Where is the best place to install an electric insect killer?
The best place to install a static electric fly killer depends on the specific situation and environment. As a general rule, it should be installed away from other light sources and food preparation areas, at a height of about 2 meters from the ground. It's also essential to place it where it won't be directly visible from the outside to avoid attracting insects into the premises, so ideally situate it away from doors and windows.
How do I clean and maintain an electric fly killer?
Cleaning and maintaining your electric fly killer is straightforward. Simply switch off and unplug the device, remove the collection tray, and dispose of the dead insects. You can then clean the fly trap tray, the outer cage, and the exterior of the unit with a damp cloth. The UV bulbs, which emit naturally occurring UV rays, and electric 'fly zapper' grid should also be checked periodically for any signs of wear or damage and replaced as needed.
Are electric fly killers safe for use around children and pets?
Electric fly killers are designed with safety in mind. The electrified metal grid used to attract flies is usually enclosed within a protective casing to prevent accidental contact. However, as with any electrical appliance, they should be installed out of reach of any children and pets in the house and not left unattended when in use.
Can I use an electric fly killer outdoors?
While some electric fly killers are designed for outdoor and garden use, others are intended for indoor use only. Be sure to check the product specifications before using an electric fly killer outdoors. Outdoor models are typically waterproof and more robust to withstand weather conditions.
How long does the UV bulb last in an electric fly killer?
The lifespan of a UV bulb in an electric fly killer can vary depending on the model and usage, but typically, they last for about 6-9 months with continuous use. It's recommended to replace bulbs annually to maintain optimal performance and ensure you rid your space of pests.
What is the coverage area of an electric fly killer?
The coverage area of an electric fly killer can vary depending on the model and power output. As a general rule, a more powerful unit will have a larger coverage area. Check the product specifications for details on the coverage area.
