Rentokil brings new technology and greater protection with Luminos 3 Plus fly control unit

luminos-3-plusRentokil today announces the launch of Luminos 3 Plus, part of its Luminos fly control range, to coincide with the beginning of the ‘fly season’ in the UK. Luminos 3 Plus uses unique encapsulation technology developed by Rentokil to trap insects within the unit’s adhesive film, reducing the risk of contamination and providing enhanced protection from flying insect infestations.

Fitted with three powerful 15W UV-A lamps, the Luminos 3 Plus unit is designed to attract and capture all types of flying insects using an adhesive film, which automatically winds on at regular intervals, to manage the risk of contamination of dead insects. It offers businesses a more hygienic and pesticide-free approach to fly control than conventional devices, which simply zap flying insects and leave fragments in the surrounding environment. It is suitable for use in public areas where insect presence could greatly damage reputation, such as large food retailers, commercial premises, and offices.

The introduction of Luminos 3 Plus was the result of a review and upgrade of the entire Luminos range, Rentokil’s portfolio of fly control solutions, in order to cater for the needs of businesses in different sectors, ranging from small to large scale operations. To upgrade the range, Rentokil carried out extensive research and rigorous testing at Rentokil’s European Technical Centre.

The Luminos range, which now comprises six units, is intended to help businesses comply with health and safety legislation and eradicate the need for pesticides in environments where their use must be closely monitored.

Julie Birch, Marketing Manager, from Rentokil said: “Fly infestations can lead to diseases being spread and the contamination of foodstuffs. We know from speaking to our customers that many are concerned with the health risks and potential damage to a business’ reputation that infestations can bring. So we have enhanced our range of Luminos solutions in time for the fly season.”
