Siting a flykiller

Every application is unique, so each situation requires an individual assessment for fly killer siting, however, there are basic principals that should be followed:

  • Recommend enough units to cover the area to be protected in line with the recommended coverage guidelines for each model
  • Install units away from sources of light competition, such as windows, doors and high powered luminaires
  • Consider sources of heat and airflow, such as heaters / AC units
  • Don’t install killing grid units directly above sensitive areas, such as food preparation areas
  • Glueboard units should be used in sensitive applications such as food preparation or production areas
  • Consider access for installation and future servicing
  • Wherever possible, flykillers should be positioned at 90° to sources of natural light, such as windows, doors and skylights
  • Flykillers should be positioned in between potential entry points, so as to intercept flying insects before they reach sensitive areas
  • Flykillers should not be sited either too high or too low in the area to be protected, with an optimum height of around 2m , for most flying insect species
