Abiotec process

Simple, efficient and non-hazardous

Irresistibly attractive…

The process

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 :

5

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.

Capture

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:

5

No noise, no smell

5

Captures all flying insects, even the smallest

5

Hygienic, no risk of spatter of residues from the burnt insects

5

The trap stays clean

5

Easy to count the number of insects

5

Insect species may be identified

5

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.

Drawbacks:

5

Fire hazard (spark)

5

Insects thrown out of the trap during electrocution

5

Residues from pulverised insects in the air (cross-contamination)

5

Unpleasant noise and smell

5

Counting difficult and inaccurate

5

Impossible to identify the insects caught
