Fly Zapper

Two main components make up a great fly zapper. Usually ultra-violet tube bulbs and an electrified metal grid combine to provide a highly effective fly trap. Flying insects in most cases are attracted to bright ultra-violet light, the bulb entices pests onto the electrified grid, which vaporises them on contact.

Key benefits of an electric fly zapper

  • Often kills instantly.
  • Cleaning is easy and maintenance is low. Lamps rarely need to be changed
  • Less mess, dead insects often drop into an easy clean tray

Glue Board

Often called glue traps, these popular type of fly killer work in a similar way to a zapper. The glue board uses a fluorescent ultra-violet light to attract insects, which then traps pests against the replaceable sticky board.

Key benefits of a glue board fly killer

  • Glue boards can be smaller in size to electric fly killers re usually smaller than zappers.
  • Sometimes glue board fly traps require less cleaning than their electric fly zapper counterparts. You simple change out the glue board, give a simple wipe down if needed and youíre good to go again.
  • Less noise that electric fly zappers with no zapping noises as pests are captured by the fly trap.

Glue boards do need to be replaced, as with you cleaning a zapper type model flies will stay until the board is replaced. During hotter months or particularly high insect areas, replacing the glue boards will need to be done more regularly.
