Flowtron Bug Zappers: A Farmer’s Best Friend

Flowtron bug zappers keep the bugs at bay for a farm experience that is mosquito and fly-free.

If you’ve ever spent time on a farm, you know that mosquitoes and flies can quickly turn a productive day into a frustrating ordeal.

Not only are these pests annoying, but they can also pose significant health risks to your livestock.

Fortunately, with the right bug zapper and mosquito prevention strategies, you can keep your animals safe and comfortable.

In this article, we’ll explore the benefits of bug zappers for farmers and discuss how to incorporate Flowtron into insect control for barns and coops.

Let’s get started.

Understanding the Pest Problem

Before diving into pest prevention strategies, it’s essential to understand the impact of mosquitoes and flies on a farm.

Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water, laying their eggs in containers, puddles, or other water sources. Once hatched, they seek out hosts by detecting carbon dioxide and body heat. Their bites can transmit diseases such as West Nile Virus, which can affect both humans and animals.

Flies are attracted to the organic material found in barns and coops. They can spread bacteria and diseases, posing a threat to the health of your livestock.

Flowtron’s Role

Enter the Flowtron bug zapper, your ally in protecting livestock from insects.

Innovative Technology

These powerful electric bug zappers for farms combine UV light with our patented octenal attractant to effectively lure and attract insects within a radius of up to 2 acres wide.

Once the insects hit our patented high-efficiency killing grid, 5600V of energy finishes the job, zapping and killing the bugs on contact.

Environmental Safety

Flowtron bug zappers operate without the use of harmful chemicals or insecticides, making them an eco-friendly choice for mosquito and fly control in livestock areas. With an innovative vertical design, insect remains fall straight to the ground for natural reabsorption into the ecosystem, contributing to a cleaner, greener environment.

Benefits of Bug Zappers for Farmers

Health Protection from Livestock

By reducing the population of mosquitoes and flies, Flowtron bug zappers help lower the risk of mosquito- and fly-borne diseases. This can lead to significant savings on veterinary costs and improve the overall health of your livestock.

Improved Livestock Comfort and Productivity

With fewer pests around, your animals will experience less stress, leading to better growth and productivity. A more comfortable environment in coops and barns translates to happier, healthier animals.

Incorporating Flowtron into Your Farm Routine

Using Flowtron bug zappers as insect control for barns and coops is as easy as one, two, three.

  1. Setup

Installing the Flowtron bug zapper is quick and easy. Simply place the unit in a strategic location, preferably 25 ft away from your barn or coop and 6 ft off the ground, and plug it into a power source.

  1. Operation

Once installed, let the Flowtron bug zapper do its job. The outdoor bug zapper will attract insects using a combination of ultraviolet light and octenol to lure them into its electric grid, where they’ll be zapped and eliminated on contact.

If your pest problem goes beyond mosquitoes, you can use a combination of fly sex lure and octenol to keep flies away, too.

  1. Maintenance

To ensure continuous pest control, it’s essential to maintain your Flowtron bug zapper. Regularly clean the unit and replace the bug zapper light and insect attractants as needed.

Additional Farm Pest Control Strategies

While Flowtron bug zappers are a super-effective pest control solution on their own, additional fly and mosquito control in barns can enhance their effectiveness.

Manage Standing Water: Regularly check for and eliminate sources of standing water where mosquitoes can breed.

Maintain Cleanliness: Keep your barn and coop clean to reduce the attraction of flies. Regularly remove manure and other organic waste.

Rotate Crops: When a crop stays in the same place, the number of pests and diseases tends to increase. Crop rotation prevents this while also preserving the good physical and biochemical conditions of the soil.

The Bottom Line

With Flowtron by your side, protecting livestock from insects has never been easier or more effective. By incorporating Flowtron into your farm routine, you can create a safer, more comfortable environment for your livestock.
