Along with the spring, insects also wake up to life, which are not welcome guests in the apartment. Will the insecticidal lamp help to get rid of flies and mosquitoes from the apartment?
Insecticidal lamp is a popular alternative to paws, sticks, sprays and scented candles. This device is very effective in eliminating insects in an odorless and safe way for the environment.
For home use, you can purchase one of three types of lamps.
The lamp works in a very simple way. The device attracts insects and then kills them. The main lure for insects is the color of the UV-A light, which is invisible to the human eye, but acts as a magnet for insects. You can find UV insecticide lamps in stores, but they are less effective than UV-A (fluorescent) lamps.
When choosing a device, you should also take into account its power. The greater it is, the more insects it can attract and annihilate. For home use, lamps of 15-40 watts are recommended. The larger the room, the more powerful the lamp should be.
When choosing an insecticide lamp for the garden, check whether the manufacturer allows its use outdoors. Outdoor lamps must be made of waterproof material. Therefore, for the outdoors you should only choose lamps that are designed for this purpose. Any type of insecticide lamp will work in a home environment. If there are small children in the house, then the lamp should be placed out of their reach.
Insecticidal lamps emit a wave of electromagnetic light; the wavelength is 300 – 400 nm. The light dose is completely safe for humans and animals. The lamp works without the use of chemicals and substances harmful to human and animal health.
