Fly Control Units
If a cockroach were to walk across your table at a restaurant, you would leave immediately. However, if a fly were to land on your plate, you would probably just wave it away and carry on eating. Yet, the fly carries as much disease potential as a cockroach. Should it not be met with the same distaste and controlled with as much vigilance?
Flying insects have been found to carry a wide range of dangerous micro-organisms all over their bodies, in their saliva and excreta, including E Coli, Salmonella, Campylobacter and many others. Even a tiny dose of any of these is enough to cause serious disease. At the very least, insect contamination reduces product quality, making it unsaleable - it is here that "a fly in the soup" is no joke.
Flying insects are attracted to fly control units, which use ultraviolet (UV) light as an attractant. It has been found that UV rays emitted around the 365-nanometer wavelength in the spectrum are the most effective.
There are two types of fly control units:
Electronic fly killers use an electrically charged high-voltage grid to kill the insects on contact. The dead insects fall into a catch tray suspended at the bottom of the machine.
Sticky Trap units, the insects land on the glue area of the board where they are held until they die. Boards should be changed at regular intervals and can be kept for insect identification or as record of "due dilligence".
