Sep 6, 2017: According to a study by Rentokil, about 45 per cent of businesses have suffered fly infestation, and they have reported major concerns about loss of income as their business reputation has been damaged.
Now the electronic LED fly killers will change the way the hospitality industry manages flies. Rentokil’s Lumnia electronic LED fly killer replaces traditional blue-light fluorescent systems, and improves catch rates compared to traditional tube light versions.
The Lumnia units are a new tool in managing fly menance in cafes, restaurants, pubs, and clubs. Kate Levy, head of marketing for Rentokil Initial Pacific, said “We understand the challenge fly control can bring to businesses,” she said. “In 2017 a reputation takes a long time to build, and it can be destroyed by a single fly in a coffee, meal or glass of wine.
“For three years Rentokil’s Global Science Center has been testing and analysing LED technology with global lighting leaders. The technology is now at a point that its benefits can be leveraged for customers due to lower cost LEDs and enhanced performance.
“Lumnia gives businesses the ability to control their reputation, save money and energy and do it in a way that suits the aesthetic of the space they have created. It’s more environmentally friendly than traditional, ugly blue light tube systems and it outperforms their catch rate significantly.”
