There are several types of Electronic Fly Killer’s (EFK) on the market most are of
good quality but there are some cheap imports which are not very good and don’t work
efficiently, so the correct choice is important. Where the unit is sited is also
very important as the unit should not compete with natural light, where possible.
EFK tubes need to be checked or replaced at least annually for them to remain effective.
Just because the tube appears to be blue in colour this has nothing to do with the
ultraviolet light output, this is in the 365 nanometer (nm) band and is invisible
to the human eye.
Some tubes you see will also be green in colour. These are dual band tubes which
have an output at 365nm and also 540nm. These tubes are more effective at catching
some flies which are not attracted to ultraviolet light.
EFK’s are generally one of two types, either a glue-board type or an electric killer
grid type. Both types are effective fly killers however, the glue-board type is preferable
when the unit is located close to food preparation or serving areas as the electric
grid type can cause the flies to explode when they come into contact with the grid
causing body parts to exit the EFK.
Aveland Pest Solutions can install, service and maintain your EFK to ensure it is
operating as efficiently as possible. We can also ensure it is sited correctly.
