  3. 3. Types of ILT: Overview Type Features Advantages Main Disadvantages Typical applications FLYING INSECT KILLER High Voltage Grid unit High voltage grid that “zaps” Good to areas with high levels of activity Unsuitable for areas involving food as insect fragments can be sent airborne. Noisy and off putting for public areas Warehousing and outdoor areas with high insect populations, refuse areas FLYING INSECT CATCHER Control Board Unit Captures flying insects “whole” on a sticky control board Ideal for any applications where food safety is important. Catch method is silent for discretion In areas of extremely high insect activity units with small control boards Back of House units for Kitchens, food factories, food preparation areas, food packaging Front of house units for Café and restaurant seating areas. Jet Proof Unit Insect Killer or Catcher IP rated units that are suitable for difficult and demanding environments Can be used in damp, wet, wash-down and dusty areas See above depending on whether HV grid or Control Board Fish and meat processing factories
  4. 4. Types of ILTs: High Voltage Units • Flies are killed by being electrocuted on charged grids • Insects fall into a catch tray, however fragments of insects can become airborne • Avoid electrocutor traps in areas where food is served or prepared • High voltage traps best used in warehouse situations or other sites where heavy flying insect activity is expected. Electrocutors fragment insects and can contaminate food
  5. 5. Types of ILTs: Control board traps • Insects are captured “whole” on an adhesive control board • “Whole capture” reduces the potential for insect fragments to enter the atmosphere and food chain and offer the potential for flying insect identification and monitoring capability • They provide silent catch (No Zapping) in customer areas • Control boards require regular replacement • Traps with low capacity (small catch area) should be avoided, particularly in areas of high insect activity
  6. 6. Types of ILTs Control board traps • Jet Proof Units • Either in High voltage or control board format. • Used for wet, damp or wash down areas • Always use with safety tubes
  7. 7. Generic applications: Front of house Vs. Back of house Areas not in the view of the general public/customer • Food preparation areas • Kitchens • Food production • Packaging • Warehousing areas Back of house Front of House Areas in view of the general public/customer • Hotel lobbies & corridors • Restaurant seating areas • Café seating areas • Retail outlets • Reception areas
