The XL Safari Moth Trap is a new modified version of the original Safari Moth Trap design with its integral central cone and fabric body with side supports. It features the same extremely lightweight body and versatility, but new features include a larger size (40cm x 34cm), a U-shaped zip opening to make access easier and a geotextile base for extra durability when it is placed on the ground. The trap can be assembled in minutes and can be either hung or tethered on the ground using tent pegs. The larger size means that it can hold more egg boxes than the original model.
The recommended light source for the trap is an ES fitting blacklight or actinic bulb and if preferred you can buy a complete kit. This complete kit has a mains plug for the bulb, with an approx. 8m long cable and bulb. The trap can also be used with LED lighting units.
Trapping is enhanced because the whole body of the unit gives off a shining “UV glow” which makes the best use of low wattage actinic tube lighting.
Dimensions: 40cm (16”) diameter x 34cm (13.5”) tall. Weight: 310g.
Please note: In a small proportion of tropical locations, aggressive biting ants, beetles and hornets may be encountered which might damage the lightweight netting used on this trap. This moth trap does not have a rain shield so do not use mercury vapour or other hot running lamps with it because these may shatter explosively if they come into contact with water. The use of cool running lamps is also advised for attended trapping and public events.
