Moth Traps

We can supply traps in a variety of formats. DIY kits include the relevant electric kit together with plans and instructions for building your own trap and represent the cheapest way of starting moth trapping. We can also supply ready built traps constructed from top quality materials and professionally finished. (see also Moth Trap Electrics )

         Mains Electric Traps      (click here for 12v Battery Traps)

Skinner Trap

Our skinner moth traps are approximately 45cm square and 35cm high and are constructed from exterior ply, complete with base and treated with a wildlife friendly preservative for extra durability. You can choose from one of the below moth traps with relevant electrics from our list, i.e. SK07, SK09, etc. All moth traps come complete with egg cartons which are used for the moths to rest on.
 
The 125w MV (SK07) is the most popular Skinner type moth trap and will maximise the catch. The light emitted from the bulb is very bright, like a security light. The ALS single 15w (SK09) or Twin 30w actinic trap (SK09a) is ideal for trapping in built up areas where neighbours can be a problem. (See also Deluxe Carrying Bag)

12v Battery Traps

Heath Trap

The 15w 'Heath type' Moth Trap is made from durable light weight polypropylene (2.4kg including portable electrics). It is very strong and very easy to assemble with one of the best catch and retention rates for a moth trap. The electronics' incorporate a light sensor which enables the trap to turn on and off itself at dusk and dawn. In addition, it also has an intelligent in-built voltage regulator which will turn the trap off automatically should the battery become almost fully discharged (approximately 95% discharged), thus protecting the battery from possible damage to the cells from over-discharge and to the bulb.
 
This model comes with a 12v portable unit and tube (battery not included). See Going mobile
