Electric Flykillers attract flying insects using an ultraviolet (UV) attractant lamp. Since flies are attracted to all light, the UV lamp must compete with other available light. Electric flykillers work best where alternative light is restricted. In a dark attics they are extremely effective, for example, but in a conservatory they are only likely to be effective at night .
EFK’s are frequently installed in kitchens (as required by Environmental Health Officers) with strong light competition, so there may be a need for more EFK’s than the standard recommendations.
EFK’s are available in 2 main forms:
Fitted with an electric killing grid
Fitted with sticky boards
Electric killing grid types are the most effective, but may not be appropriate in an elegant restaurant where the ‘zizzing’ noise that heralds another successful kill would undoubtedly destroy the ambience! So there are now a number of very elegant soft lighting sticky board designs available.
