LED Flying Insect Control Units
Flying insects enjoy decaying organic matter as their favoured source of food. As rotting plant and animal waste can carry parasites, bacteria, and pathogens which are harmful to human health and safety, it is important to ensure you have a flying insect management solution in place, particularly if you work in food production and associated industries, such as food packaging.

Why Opt for an LED Flying Insect Control Unit?
LED bulbs use less power. A standard LED lamp uses around 10 watts of power, as opposed to fluorescent tubes which typically use around 60- 90 watts. Lower energy consumption saves you money at a time when energy prices are sharply increasing https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-58558645 . Reducing your energy consumption also helps reduce your impact on the environment. Win win!
LED bulbs last longer. Fluorescent tubes have a lifespan of around 1 year before needing to be replaced. Over the course of the year, the UV output also reduces to around 50% of its original production. This is because the mercury phosphor required to emit UV light when given an electrical charge has a shelf life of around a year, and then begins to degrade. Comparatively, LED bulbs use electrical currents rather than mercury phosphor, and last for at least a 3 year period. Brightness intensity is also more effective as output doesn’t drop as quickly or as much, reducing to around 70% of its original brightness. LED longer lifespan saves you money on replacement costs and gives you a better output percentage over time.
LED bulbs are a safer, more robust option. No hazardous chemicals are required to use an LED bulb in contract to fluorescent tubes which need mercury vapour and other gases to function. The glass tube of fluorescent bulbs are prone to breaking, releasing shattered glass and chemicals into your work area. LED lamps do not rely on glass, and are not susceptible to breakage. LEDs therefore may save you more money by reducing replacement costs through fewer breakages.
LED bulbs are more attractive to flies and have a greater reach. This means your business will save money by requiring fewer units, which will cost less to run and require fewer lamp replacements and general maintenance.
LED bulbs are lighter in weight, quieter and cooler. Lightweight makes them safer and easier to mount. Quieter and cooler units make for nicer workspaces.
