Lumnia: Commercial fly control

The most innovative and modern fly control solutions are designed to effectively attract, kill and encapsulate flying insects, eliminating the risk of contamination.

Flies are one of the most likely causes of reputational damage to your business. There are 120,000 species worldwide that pose a health risk to humans, pets, livestock, and goods. Flies can carry diseases such as Salmonella and E. coli — and a small fly problem can very quickly become an infestation. Such health risks can impact your customers, staff, and productivity and cause reputational damage to your trade.

Rentokil has created one of the most innovative and modern solutions to combat fly infestations — the Lumnia range of commercial fly control products. Lumnia’s innovative LED insect light traps (ILTs) are the modern solution to an age-old problem — attracting and containing flying insects quickly and securely and keeping them out of sight.


Discreet, effective protection against flying insects

Lumnia works by using high-attraction LED lamps to attract flies to the unit. With four ILTs completing the range, it covers every business need across many sectors, helping to combat flying-insect infestations in places such as food processing facilities, hotels, supermarkets, warehouses, and restaurants. Our Lumnia range boasts a host of leading-edge benefits. 

The power of LED

By using high-attraction LED lamps, Lumnia reaches up to 80% farther than traditional ILTs and catches flies faster than any other LED ILT available*. Lumnia has also proven to have superior performance to other competitor ILTs in the market.

Catches over 18 different types of flying insects

Based on insects caught in real customer environments, Lumnia proves effective in controlling more than 18 different flying insects, including but not limited to house flies, blue bottles, fruit flies, drain flies, SPI moths cluster flies among others.

Reduction in energy costs

Lumnia’s low-energy LED lamps have a three-year life span and save energy by up to 70% — or even up to 79% on Lumnia’s unique adaptive mode setting — compared to equivalent competing products, protecting businesses from flies and their bottom line.

Sustainable fly control

Planet Mark recognised Rentokil’s commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability by certifying the Lumnia range after it demonstrated 62% lower carbon emissions compared to units containing traditional fluorescent lamps.

HACCP approved for hygienic fly management

Ideal for use in food businesses and environments, the Lumnia range has been approved by HACCP in accordance with all requirements under the HACCP International Food Safety Certification Systems.

Versatile, modern design

Fluorescent tubes banned under new legislation

Keeping The European Commission's (EC) update to the Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment (RoHS) Directive 2011/65/EU aims to remove mercury from lighting applications, including Fluorescent UV tubes used in traditional fly killers.

According to the World Health Organization, mercury is in the top 10 chemicals of major public health concern. Its exposure can cause severe health problems including irritation to the eyes, skin and stomach; cough, chest pain or difficulty breathing – and global production results in environmental contamination and may enter the human food chain.

The level of exposure depends on the dose, duration and work being done.

What does the ban mean for businesses?

These changes start to come into effect in September 2023 when the ban on fluorescent lamps in most lighting applications will commence. The ban on Fluorescent UV tubes, widely used in fly traps, will follow in due course. Learn more about this ban on fluorescent tubes here.
