About this product

Please note: as of mid-April 2015 all types of Mercury Vapour (MV) bulb started to be phased out as part of the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS). There is limited stock in the UK left of Mercury Vapour bulbs and so although replacement bulbs will be available for a couple of years, we would advise purchasing a moth trap with an actinic bulb if you are considering long term use. This ban is designed to phase out less efficient lamps such as MV so it does not affect actinic bulbs as used in some of our moth traps.


This Robinson Moth Trap is made of heavy duty materials and is designed for prolonged use. The trap features a thick heavy-duty plastic collar and robust base and cone. The collar is made from clear plastic so you will be able to see inside without having to take the collar off. The collar is removable so trap bases can be stacked inside each other for storage.

The trap comes with complete 240V mains electrics and mercury vapour bulb, offering the highest catch rates of all moth trap designs. The trap can be run from either a mains supply or generator. The base of the trap is made of thick black plastic and features a large soak away area at the base to drain any rainwater that may enter (no more wet egg cartons). The base diameter is approximately 60cm, ensuring a large area for retained moths.

There is also a sturdy rain guard for the mercury vapour bulb and three flight interception baffles. The electrics come fully wired with a mains plug and two metres of cable leading to an IP56 waterproof box. The box houses the integrated choke and capacitor and there is one metre of output lead. This trap is ready to use - simply plug in and watch the moths come flying.

The trap includes:
* 60cm diameter plastic base with soak-away area in base
* Clear plastic collar
* White plastic cone with integrated flight interception baffles
* Rain guard
* Full 240V mains electrics with integrated choke and capacitor
* Mercury Vapour bulb

A spare/replacement bulb can be purchased for this trap.
