Need a safe indoor fly control solution? Pesticides can harm the environment and human health. That’s why more and more Australians (both homeowners and businesses) want a safe fly control solution.

Perhaps you keep your home or workplace clean but still flies are coming in. Maybe it’s a result of poor sanitation in a nearby area. Whichever is the case, you want to get rid of the flies in the safest way possible. But before you choose a solution for that, here are 3 important things to consider:

1. Effectiveness

A more effective approach than using pesticides is taking advantage of fly control lamps. These effectively capture the flies without spraying chemicals through the air.

However, not all fly control lamps are truly effective. First, the lamps should imitate the natural light given off by the sun (that’s why lamps are in the UV-A range). The house fly spectrum range (300 to 420 nm) is optimised in attracting the highest number of flies.

Aside from optimising according to the house fly vision spectrum, the fly control light should be projecting a constant beam. This way, flies will see it as a natural light source. Most UV lamps out in the market now might be generating a flickering light (not obvious to our naked eye). It’s recommended to choose a constant light source that imitates natural sunlight.

2. Long-term cost

In many businesses, cost is also a priority aside from effectiveness. This way, business owners can get the most out of their investment. In addition, the goal is to get rid of unnecessary costs.

Fly control is a necessary cost (or investment). This is true especially in food establishments where health, safety and image are primary concerns. Flies can signal poor sanitation and ruin a company’s reputation.

However, that doesn’t mean you need expensive solutions to fix a problem. Today, there are cost-effective fly control solutions. For example, a PHILIPS UV-A Long-life Lamp can last up to 2 years (while maintaining maximum effectiveness). In contrast, many other UV lamps last only for 6 months.

3. Environment-friendly

Perhaps the main reason you’re avoiding pesticides is environmental awareness. You prefer eco-friendly solutions that are also sustainable in the long run.

Many UV-A lamps are now eco-friendly. Aside from minimising chemical output to the air, these lamps are also made from water-based and non-toxic substances. Even after their useful lifespan, you’ll have no worries about how they end up during disposal.
