The Science behind Lumnia LED Insect Light Trap

A fly infestation is one of the biggest problem for countries in Asia especially South Est Asia. There are, astonishingly, 120,000 species worldwide which thousands can be found in Thailand. We cannot deny that flies create a huge impact on businesses, health control and human lives.

Due to the significant impacts there are many innovations which are created for reducing or ending flies and insects. For instance, glue trap, glue board, glue stick, small electrical trap etc. However, not every innovation can carry out the expected result, powerful enough or save cost.

At Rentokil, we believe that prevention is, more often than not, better than the cure. Our scientific research and analysis concludes that the use of LED technology in fly killers has a significant impact on the efficacy of a single unit.

Why do we chose Lumnia?

To create the most effective machine for reducing flies, our investigation and observation on how to trap and kill flies most efficiently has been the basis of numerous studies by our team of science experts at Rentokil’s Global Technical Centre. The studies show that the insect light trap with LED technology could entrap 15 species of flies, faster than others machine in current market.

Lumnia is created to be a commercial fly-control solutionthat effectively attracts, kills and encapsulates flies sustainably and hygienically. There are three reasons why Lumnia can help you create sustainability in your business.

1. The LED lamps in Lumnia can save up to 79% energy compared to fluorescent bulb when using their unique adaptive mode technology.

2. Lumnia LED lamps need to be changed once every three years as opposed to fluorescent bulbs that need to be replaced every year. This means that Lumnia has managed to reduce lamp waste by 750,000 units which is 67%.

3. Lumnia can help businesses be sustainable with a 62% reduction in carbon emissions by saving saved 26,600 tonnes of CO2.

How does Lumnia work?

Many species of flies are attracted to light especially UV-A because their eyes are sensitive to the light at that wavelength. A bright light source may also be seen as a safety signal. Light sources are generally positioned on higher ground, so instinctively heading towards light helps to keep insects away from hazards near the ground. A phenomenon known as Phototaxis describes how insects respond to light. Certain insects, such as cockroaches or earthworms, have negative phototaxis, meaning they are repelled by an exposure to light. Moths, flies and many other flying insects have positive phototaxis so are naturally attracted to it.

Therefore, the Lumnia is packed with the LEDs which produce intense beams of UV-A light that penetrate further into the surrounding environment and appears more attractive to certain insects, like house flies, than the light traditional phosphor lamps produce. Additionally, our Lumnia machine is created on the IP65 Standard which can escapsulate insects and UV-A perfectly.

The Test of Lumnia

Rentokil's Global Technical Centre in UK has dedicated two purpose-built rooms to testing fly killers. Units are compared using a standard performance test called the half-life measure.

All of our fly killers have been subjected to the same rigorous testing ever since, including the new Lumnia fly killer range.To prove the efficacy of fly killers we devised a standard half-life measure test to scientifically measure performance, allowing customers to directly compare products.

The Rentokil test is based on releasing 100 house flies (Musca domestica) in a standard test room with the product/ unit installed, and counting the number of flies captured at regular intervals over a seven hour period. This process is repeated at least six times to ensure a fair reflection of performance over time. The half-life measure represents the time taken to eliminate 50% of the flies released in the test chamber. The lower the half-life measure, the more effective the unit
