WHY? • A single Fly carries up to 33 million highly dangerous microbes • Flies vomit every time they land • They digest externally to ‘Soften their Food’ • Flies do transmit Dangerous Microbes to Food
Trends in the world market • HACCP triggered moves to glue board models • Replacing high-tension grid units • Need for information / monitoring • Better tubes ( + glass protection) • Integration of technologies • Tubes need to be RoHS compliant • Design & service friendly concepts
Why VECTOTHOR? • University of Wisconsin Report • An abundance of bacteria becomes airborne at the time a fly is electrocuted (electric grid machines) • Kansas University • Bacteria from exploding insects can travel up to 6 feet from the electric grid and even further on air currents • USDA Directive: • No electric grid units will be used in areas where food is processed or produced. • The USDA mandates that flies responsible for the spread of E-Coli and Salmonella are banned from any food production/processing areas.
VECTOTHOR • Only measure that Attracts, Kills and Collects insects without the use of chemicals. • Ability to monitor within HACCP concept • 80% of fly brain is used for sight • Consequently using UV-A light as an attractant is the most effective solution • A device to locate the source and open up new business with a customer

Human eye versus fly eye Normal light UV-A light
Lamp Life Decrease in output over lamp life Lamp life determined by electrical failure Lamp life determined by UV level • UV output drops faster than visible light – due to mercury absorption of phosphorus • One cannot see when replacement is required
UV-A Output for 2 years 1 year 4 months 2 years
Light Cycles • Sunlight Natural, constant light • Electric Lighting 50 cycles per second • Human eye observes maximum of 24 cycles per second • So we observe lamps as a constant light source • Flies observe 200 cycles per second • So flies see UV-A lamps as flashing/ flickering lights • Not as attractive as constant daylight! VECTOTHOR • Electronic Ballast 10,000 cycles per second • So flies see VECTOTHOR lamps as a constant light source • Brighter and more attractive, like constant daylight! VECTOTHORNatural UV-A Light Technology™
Insect Stimuli • Three CRITICAL Factors • Amount of UV-A light - Unique Philips Long-life Lamp • Light Cycles - Natural UV-A Light Technology™ • Contrast of Unit to Surroundings - Natural Contrast Grid™ • Only VECTOTHOR is optimised for all three Dr M Green 2011 Catch rate of Musca domestica in laboratory tests Contrasting Ultra Violet light traps with their surroundings.

Fly’s Perspective – VECTOTHOR (Philips)UV lamp + more 86% attraction
So we kill more flies! FASTER!
Advantages of PHILIPS Long-life Lamp • More powerful (almost twice the energy) • Safer to use • Shatterproof coating based on FEP material • 50% lesser glass – environmentally better • Mechanical lamp life of 2 years; or • One PHILIPS Long-life Lamp replaces two traditional UV-A lamps • Fluorescent powder is water based (no Butyl) • 100% lead free glass • Reduced mercury
VECTOTHOR GLUEBOARDS • Optimised for high temperature tropical conditions. • Use a special protective, silicone paper, which peals off more easily. • This makes it easier to handle the boards during servicing.
VECTOTHOR Advantage • Unique Philips Long-life Lamp • VECTOTHORNatural UV-A Light Technology™ • VECTOTHORHeat Trap Technology™ • VECTOTHORNatural Contrast Grid™ • Two years guarantee • Pheromone option
