Customer questions about this product
Is this bug zapper / light trap a good fit for the space I have?
Most bug zappers and light traps list a coverage area in square footage, which can serve as a good guideline, but it’s also important to think about placement. The best way to maximize the effectiveness of your unit is to set the trap strategically in a highly visible location so that the light can be seen from multiple angles.
Paraclipse 250708 Details
Paraclipse has designed the 250708 Fruit Fly Patrol insect trap to deal with one of the insect world's most notorious offenders, the fruit fly. Produce, beer and wine, drains, mops, and even moist towels provide a hospitable environment for fruit flies, and one fly can quickly become a swarm if you aren't careful. With the Fruit Fly Patrol insect control system, you can eliminate this pest for good, without relying on harsh chemicals. This helpful system also meets USDA guidelines.
Designed specifically to attract fruit flies, this insect trap uses a combination of pheromone attractants and UV light to lure insects within an average 1000 sq. ft. coverage area, depending on the layout of the room, how often the door is open, how much traffic the area receives, and the number of insects in the area. The light levels are set to an intensity that fruit flies prefer, and visual decoys on the trapping surface create a tempting place to land. The capture cartridge features a special, 30 day automated system, which rotates the sticky surface continuously to bring up fresh glue and attractants. Flies that have become trapped are advanced into the take-up reel at the end of the cartridge. When the cartridge has expired at the end of 30 days, an alarm will alert you that it is time for a replacement.
In addition to its powerful trapping capabilities, the Fruit Fly Patrol features a shell-like design that is attractive and unobtrusive. For versatility, the trap can be placed on a level surface, or mounted to the wall. For best results, do not place the zapper in an area with bright lighting, as other light sources will draw the bugs' attention. In public areas, placing the lights just above eye level will ensure that customers do not see dead insects stuck to the glue board. The included 13 watt UV bulb emits a soft light, creating a convincing sconce-like appearance. The UV bulb contains a chemical coating that maximizes the amount of UV light it transmits. To maintain the bulb's coating and the trap's optimum effectiveness, replace bulbs every 9-12 months, ideally at the beginning of Spring. Thanks to its silent operation and unique appearance, your guests will never even know that this unit is an insect trap. The Fruit Fly Patrol insect trap requires a 120V electrical connection.
