  3. 3. Fly Trap Effectiveness Issues: Flying insect behaviour How flies behave: • They fly near passageways • At 18” above the floor • Flies avoid hot, dry environments • They hunt for food by day How do they navigate? • Use UVA light to find way out of a building • Move to another place to breed again • Escape reaction
  4. 4. Fly Trap Effectiveness Issues: Maintaining equipment Replace consumables regularly: • Control boards = every 4 weeks • Bulbs = 12 months minimum replacement Keep units clean and free from debris: • Service and clean on a regular basis for best performance Replace bulbs every 12 months for effective performance
  5. 5. Fly Trap Effectiveness Issues: Why replace bulbs after 12 months?
  6. 6. Placement of Insect Light Traps: The Process
  7. 7. Introduction and reminder: Types of ILTs A brief reminder Glue board traps (for areas around food): • Front of the house • Back of the house High Voltage Killers • Not to be used near food Jet proof traps • Specialist units for tough environments copyright Brandenburg UK Limited © 2007
  8. 8. Placement of ILTs: Step 1 Initial survey Carry out an initial survey to gather information. Questions to answer • Where are the areas of major problems • Approximate size of location • Where are the windows, doorways & how often are they used • Establish fly breeding sites nearby e.g. food sources, dairy farms, chicken farms, dumpsters etc . • Define front of house and back of house areas
  9. 9. © Brandenburg UK Ltd 2008 A floor plan is a very useful tool for initial survey
  10. 10. Placement of ILTs Step 2: Process of siting • Decide where the highest risk of flying insect is likely to be found entering the building. • Walk from the exterior and interior doorways and try and determine the natural path the insects might take as they move through the building. • Consider how lighting and air movement might guide insects along.
  11. 11. Placement of ILTs: Identify Risk Areas
  12. 12. Placement of ILTs General siting guidelines Wall mount or table mount units where they can be easily serviced. • The units should not be positioned / placed where they can get damaged e.g. passageways, cleaners, maintenance staff, fork lift trucks. • Position the units such that they intercept the flies before entering critical areas. • Position units such that, you draw insects away from the area you are trying to protect. • Do not place units over food preparation, packaging or processing areas The Genus Fli can be wall mounted or placed on a table-top
  13. 13. Good locations for ILTs
  14. 14. Types of ILTs in context The following slides give a number of examples of locations where ILT’s can be placed. Placement examples include: • Supermarket (various locations) • Café (front of house) • Health care (public areas) • Commercial Kitchen (back of house)
  15. 15. Supermarket Example Back of house glue board unit Front of house glue board unit High Voltage Grid unit
  16. 16. Café example Front of house Front of house units can be used in customer/public areas - There is no need to “hide” them. Because insects are captured fully intact, Brandenburg ILT’s may be installed near food preparation or serving lines, but never directly over the food preparation and/or serving areas
  17. 17. Kitchen area Back of house Insect light traps are vital in food production areas such as kitchens. Don’t install units: •Adjacent to Natural sources of UVA light • Next to extreme heat sources • Directly above food preparation areas DO Install Units: • To draw flying insects away from food preparation area DO Install Units: In intercept paths – capturing insects that enter the kitchen
  18. 18. Hospital facility example: Public areas Front of the house units can be used in public areas Insect light traps is important in health care facilities – install ILT’s in corridors and outside of operating theatres
  19. 19. Food Areas Rules of placement of ILTs • Do not use High Voltage units in Food preparation areas – use control board units only • Do not place units directly over food preparation areas. e.g. above cookers, steam vents etc • Do not place units in near air blowers, air conditioners etc. • In glass free areas use units with Safety/sleeved bulbs. copyright Brandenburg UK Limited © 2007
