Compact 20w Skinner Trap

With the huge success of the Compact Heath Trap introduced in 2017 we have now launched the Compact Skinner Trap which is outselling all other moth traps due to their price, catch rate and portability.

Similar to the Compact Heath Trap but has the added advantage of clear polycarbonate upper panels so the moths can be easily viewed, pin-pointed and accessed.

  • Manufactured in lightweight and durable polypropylene and polycarbonate.
  • Easy to assemble. Fully flat packs.
  • Excellent catch rates similar to twin 30w actinic.
  • Dimensions: 35cmx35cmx32 cm box height.
  • Total height with rain guard 48cm.
  • Weight (with electrics) 3kg.
  • UK Step-up Voltage Converter 110V – 220V. A small plug-in converter allowing UK power mains devices 240Vac units to be powered from a 110Vac main outlet is available for this Trap (see UV20 on the Moth Traps-electrics page). Useful for our North American customers or UK customers travelling to North America.

The Lepidopterist – Compact Double 20w Skinner Trap in special white reflective PP

With the success of the Compact Skinner Trap (UV10) we have designed a Compact Skinner Trap in a special white polypropylene (PP) with double 20w bulbs. The added advantage of the white PP is that it reflects the UVA given out by the actinic bulbs rather than absorbing, this in turn increases the catch. In addition to this the two 20w actinic bulbs will catch more than a single bulb. All in all, an excellent catch rate.

  • Manufactured in lightweight and durable white polypropylene.
  • Easy to assemble. Fully flat packs.
  • Excellent catch rates.
  • Dimensions: 35cmx35cmx32 cm box height.
  • Total height with rain guard 48cm.
  • Weight (with electrics) 4kg.
  • UK Step-up Voltage Converter 110V – 220V. A small plug-in converter allowing UK power mains devices 240Vac units to be powered from a 110Vac main outlet is available for this Trap (see UV20 on the Moth Traps-electrics page). Useful for our North American customers or UK customers travelling to North America.

NOTE: As from Mid-April 2015 all Mercury Vapour (MV) bulbs will start to be phased out as part of the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS) which effects the manufacturer of (not the re-sale of) This ban is designed to phase out less efficient lamps such as MV, it does not affect Actinic Light. At the time of writing (January 2017) ALS still have some stock left and hope to conserve these by restricting customers to ONE bulb per trap purchase.

Professional Robinson Trap

Our Professional Robinson Moth Trap is a top of the range trap made from polypropylene. The units will stack inside one another for maximum portability. They have a better holding capacity than the Skinner Moth Trap. Supplied complete with 125w MV electrics and rain guard. 60cm diameter (at widest point), 2mm thick clear collar for extra durability with internal drainage holes and gauze covering. As used by Nick Baker on BBC2 Springwatch Guide to Butterflies and Moths Live July 2013 We also offer a special edition white Robinson Trap for that celebratory occasion such as birthdays, retirement or even a unique wedding gift (some recorders believe all white traps have a better catch potential). The deep based Robinson Trap is good for high catches in areas with high moth densities, available as a complete trap or just the base to swap with existing trap.

Twin 30W (60w) Actinic Robinson Moth Trap

Using the same base and thick 2mm collar as the Professional Robinson Trap this model runs two 30w (60w) 18" long actinic tubes giving very good catch results almost comparable with 125w MV traps in certain locations. Fast becoming our top selling Robinson Trap. Advantages of this trap over other moth traps are the retention rate, once moth get in the trap, they find it hard to escape (like a lobster pot).

Clear UV Glasses

We recommend the use of UV protected sunglasses if working with the moth trap at night. These will protect the eyes from UV and from the glare of the bright bulb – obviously they must be removed when leaving the area for obvious reasons.

If an alternative is required, try our clear UV glasses which are shatterproof and are UV400 filtered for maximum protection.
