How do electric fly killer work?

The way electronic insect control devices work is really simple: the device gives off ultraviolet (UV) light which attracts a variety of insects. This is because insects often see ultraviolet light far better than other types of light; further, ultraviolet light creates a sort of flower-like pattern which is also highly attractive to them.

Next to the UV light are mesh grids (made of wire) which gives off high-voltage electricity. When insects come into contact with those grids while flying to the UV light, the electronic current runs through them, killing them instantly. Using an fly killer is the most effective way to stop the flies and other insects in your home or property, however note that some measures may help to prevent flying insects from entering:

  • Never leave food around, exposed to air.
  • Clean up spills, crumbs and leftovers.
  • Be careful with the food of your pet, do not leave the plate exposed to air for   too long.
  • Use mosquito screens, especially during summer
