A bug zapper is a device that attracts and kills flying insects that are attracted by light. A light source attracts insects to an electrical grid, where they are electrocuted by touching two wires with a high voltage between them. The name stems from the characteristic zap sound produced when an insect is electrocuted.
SE44 Electric Fly Killer utilises ultraviolet tubes to attract flying insects into the product, before zapping them dead on a high voltage killing grid. UV tubes attract flying insects by emitting a wavelength of light attractive to flies. Flying insects are attracted to the tube which emits UV at a level comparable to that of the sun, which the flying insect has a natural attraction to as a source of heat.
High performance combined with clean aesthetic lines, the select range is ideal for food preparation areas. The deep catch tray ensures that once the flying insect has been killed, the SE44 Electric Fly Killer will retain the dead insect in a catch tray to allow hygienic disposal.
SE44 Electric Fly Killer is ideal for use in a commercial backroom, a commercial front of a house and industrial backroom areas.

Placement of the SE44 is an area that is frequently misunderstood and there are a few simple points to observe.
Firstly the height at which SE44 units are to be installed is important in terms of efficiency. As a general rule the higher up they are the less effective. In a working environment, the ideal height would be between two and two and a half metres from the ground. At this height, the risk of the SE44 units being damaged by moving trolleys or forklift trucks is reduced whilst maintaining maximum efficiency. They will also be easier to clean and maintain.
The ideal location is at right angles to the major light source in the room.
SE22 units must not be sited so that the light source is obscured (if flying insects cannot see it the unit will not be very effective).
The site between potential entry points and production areas to intercept pests before they reach sensitive areas.
Do not rely on an area of coverage of a particular SE44 unit as the only criteria for choosing and installing fly zappers. There are several factors that need to be considered before deciding on the appropriate number and size of units to be installed. These would include the number of entry points including doors, windows and any other openings for instance for pipework or extractor fans. What is the volume of human traffic through the area to be protected? What would be the normal flying insect population? What is being produced? And where is the facility located? If it is close to a lake or a rubbish tip then there will be a greater risk than if the facility is in the middle of an industrial estate.
SE44 should not be installed in areas where they can be affected by air currents. Avoid areas close to air conditioning vents or where draughts may be a problem. This is because flying insects, on the whole, do not like moving air and SE44 units placed in these areas may be less efficient.
SE44 units are often placed directly in front of doorways – the logic of the installer being that this is where the insects enter and so they will be more easily caught. In fact, this will only encourage insects to enter and make the problem worse. It is better to install SE44 units off to the side of doorways ensuring as much as possible that the light does not shine out of the open door.
Never ever install SE44 units directly above a processing line or food preparation area. The Ultra Violet lamps are highly attractive to flying insects and will attract the insects to those areas. Better to install the SE444units away from sensitive areas to attract the insects and kill them away from the critical areas to be protected.
- Don’t forget to change the lamps every 12 months – preferably just before the start of the fly season.
