Lumnia Ultimate innovative fly control

Rentokil Pest Control today launched Lumnia Ultimate, the newest innovation in electronic fly control. Developed by its in-house experts, Lumnia Ultimate delivers improved fly-killing performance and energy efficiency.

Lumnia Ultimate builds on Rentokil’s original Lumnia model, which was the first Electronic Fly Killer (EFK), in the UK, to use LED technology – to extend the EFK’s catchment area by 40%, over conventional UV tubes. Lumnia Ultimate introduces black LED strips, which work to create a high contrast affect, which is proven to be a greater source of attraction to flies. With a higher UV output and catchment area, Lumnia Ultimate is 41% more efficient at catching flies than the original Lumnia. It also features concealed encapsulation to prevent fly debris from falling outside the unit, reducing the risk of contamination.

Lumnia Ultimate has been designed to be extremely energy efficient. Running on 33 watts and equipped with adaptive energy modes, it delivers a 48% energy saving on average over traditional equivalent EFKs. Lower running temperatures improve LED life, guaranteeing UV output for at least three years. This results in savings for businesses, while still ensuring the highest standard of fly control.

Berwyn Evans, UK Product Manager for Rentokil Pest Control, comments; “Lumnia Ultimate demonstrates Rentokil’s commitment to innovation and helping businesses best manage pest issues. Not only has Lumnia Ultimate been designed to effectively attract and kill insects hygienically, reducing the risk of contamination – it is the most cost effective electronic fly control unit for businesses to run.

Fly control is an essential part of day-to-day operations for many businesses in the UK, as flies are capable of transmitting a wide range of pathogens and represent a common cause of food poisoning. The quicker flies are eliminated from an environment, the lower the risk of fly-borne diseases spreading. Unlike other EFKs, the Lumnia range features sleek, modern design that would not look out of place ‘front-of-house’ demonstrating an establishment’s commitment to hygiene.”
