Simple, efficient and non-hazardous
Abiotec’s devices eliminate flying insects in total safety without use of chemical products and with radical efficiency.
The process used exploits a natural phenomenon observed scientifically: insects have eyes made up of many facets which are particularly sensitive to ultra-violet light.
Operation of a two-stage insect killer :
An irresistible light source attracts the insects
This trapping technique most often uses lamps transmitting UV-A ultraviolet at 368 nm (harmless to humans) to attract all flying insects which are highly sensitive to this light source. The role of the light is only to attract the insects, it does not kill them.
Once in the device, the insects are trapped, depending on the model, either by a high-voltage grid or by a glue board.
Glue board or electrocuting grid?
Models with glue board :
With this system, insects irresistibly attracted by the UV-A light end up on a board coated with glue specially designed for this purpose. Highly-rated by more and more users, insect control devices using glue boards have a number of advantages:
No noise, no smell
Captures all flying insects, even the smallest
Hygienic, no risk of spatter of residues from the burnt insects
The trap stays clean
Easy to count the number of insects
Insect species may be identified
No risk of fire, no sparks
High-voltage grid models :
On contact with the bars of the electric grid located at the centre of the insect control device, the insects are electrocuted and fall into a recovery tray.
Fire hazard (spark)
Insects thrown out of the trap during electrocution
Residues from pulverised insects in the air (cross-contamination)
Unpleasant noise and smell
Counting difficult and inaccurate
Impossible to identify the insects caught
