Over the past 10 years, horsefly traps have gained market recognition: from a bizarre product – which raised more questions than answers – it has grown into a mature product, recognized for its trapping performance. A horsefly trap is designed to attract insects that can see infrared images. They are attracted to the black ball, which is heated by the sun. The warm black ball, with the shape, movement and size of the back of a horse, has an infrared signature that is sensed by most blood-sucking insects, such as the horsefly.
Once the horsefly are on the black ball, they are led through a funnel placed over the ball into a catch basin, from which they cannot escape. Easy and reliable. This funnel usually comes in the color white.
It is this color of the funnel that can be a major drawback.
Light-colored objects (white and yellow) have the ability to polarize (reflect) ultraviolet light emitted by the sun. This ultraviolet light, also known as UV-A light, is noticed by a large group of flying insects, which react strongly to it. Ultraviolet light is perceived by these insects as food and are attracted by this particular light.
Most horsefly traps come with a white funnel.
Most horsefly traps come with a white funnel. Bees can see the polarized light from the white funnel from a great distance and are attracted to it. These bees can easily enter the hopper and eventually be caught in the collection tray.
Daardoor kan een groot aantal bijen in de opvangschaal van de H-trap terechtkomen. The market is increasingly aware of the situation of the bee population in Europe. Pesticides have had a dramatic effect on the bee population, which has halved. It is important to avoid attracting the hornet traps to beneficial insects, such as the bee.
To ensure that the funnel does not attract beneficial insects, the color of the funnel is green The color green is known to reflect little or no UV-A light from its surface. This makes the horsefly trap virtually invisible to the bee, for example. Our horsefly trap with green funnel has been field-tested from 2012 and available to you from 2014.
Our conclusion: the green funnel does not attract bees.
A horsefly trap should be a selective trap, with little or no attraction to beneficial insects. By changing the color of the funnel from white to green, we make the trap invisible to a large group of beneficial insects and prevent bees – among other species – from being attracted and entangled in the trap system.
So the color green is extremely beneficial to biodiversity, so choose a horsefly trap with a green color
Why spare parts are better than buying new:
Spare parts are cheaper than buying new ones, which saves you money!
Spare parts are better for the environment Instead of producing and transporting a new trap, it is better for the environment to replace only the part that has failed.
