When operational production is conducted on larger scales, often involving multiple locations, climates and cultures, it becomes imperative for businesses to have the right measures in place for staff and brand reputations to stay protected from potential health, hygiene and safety hazards.
From food processing and packaging sites to commercial kitchens belonging to hotel or restaurant chains, to pharmaceutical units on industrial estates, pests – such as flies – cannot and should not be allowed to contaminate production, storage and delivery areas.
Fly control and the food sector
Where food and beverage form the core of a business, whether this is across manufacturing, distributing, or retail sectors, the need for proactive pest control measures is mandatory, such as the following high-dependency areas that require a zero tolerance approach:
- raw ingredients and where these are stored
- inside machinery where pests could potentially gain access to – and cause damage – through holes, nooks and crannies.
- In business warehouses
- In customer warehouses
The earlier a pest infestation is detected and dealt with, the better. Yet, with larger operational sites, this is often easier said than done.
The good news is that thanks to recent innovations in fly control technologies, your business can uphold a zero tolerance approach to pest infestations, thereby ensuring that your staff and end-users, as well as your brand reputation, remain protected.
Introducing Lumnia Ultimate: A fly control solution for large scale business operations
Light-Emitting Diodes, LED, are a form of lighting technology, commonly used for indicator lights (e.g. switch on/off lights) on electronic devices and in energy-saving light bulbs.
In 2012, about 49 million LEDs were installed in the United States, saving around $675 million in annual energy costs. The main reason behind such huge savings is because unlike incandescent bulbs, which release 90% of their energy as heat, LEDs only convert around 9-10% of energy, performing far more efficiently with little wasted heat.
With the Lumnia Ultimate electric fly killer, businesses save an average of 48%.
The Lumnia fly control device range uses our patented LED technology that comprises UV-A LED lights, which attracts flies better than phosphor lamps that are found in traditional insect light traps.
How does Lumnia Ultimate work?
Lumnia Ultimate is a safe and highly effective unit with three LED lamps that attract the flies effectively and eliminate the risk of secondary infestation, by encapsulating flies into an adhesive film that automatically winds on, providing a fresh adhesive catch area.
The horizontal reach of ultraviolet light from a Lumnia unit is greater than traditional fluorescent tubes. This gives Lumnia Ultimate a greater range to attract flies and use less power at the same time.
Which businesses is it suitable for?
Lumnia Ultimate is suited for high-dependency business environments, such as food processing sites, pharmaceutical manufacturing units as well as sites for general industrial operations.
The Lumnia range of electric fly killers are suitable for a range of internal environments and comprises the following innovative features:
- LED lamps
- Energy modes (low, medium, high & adaptive)
- Glueboard and encapsulation – allowing monitor and control
- Optimised for attraction and catch rate
- No catch trays, no mess!
No matter how large or small your business is, or how many sites you have, there is a Lumnia device that will suit your fly control requirements.
