Martin's Comments:

This is a really nice mains operated moth trap which folds into its case for transport.
This trap is based on the Skinner trap style but with added vanes to improve the catch and is also foldable to fit neatly into a case making it easy to transport around.
The trap uses 40W electrics which can be made portable using an inverter and battery of at least 24ah (details below).
Each trap comes complete with electrics, rainshield, robust carry case and 4m mains cable. The case acts as a base for the trap when assembled.

Features:

Panels: Metal
Dimensions: Height: 30cm; Width: 30cm; Length: 41cm
Bulb: 40W Actinic tube
Cable: 4 metres
Plug: UK 13A plug

Martin's Comments:

This is very nicely put together and is ideal for those who need to transport their moth trap regularly.

This new moth trap provides you with everything you need to start moth trapping in your garden.

Using an innovative approach to the tried and tested skinner trap design, the panels which make up the box simply slot together without tools, utilising a unique tab and slot design.

The panels are precision cut from 9mm FSC plywood and when put together create a robust and rigid box with a satisfyingly solid feel to it. The flat-pack box can be quickly assembled and disassembled, making it easy to transport and store.

The two clear plastic panels slide into slots in the side panels to form a moth "funnel" once the box is assembled, and can be removed while the trap is operating if you want to check your catch.

The trap has a mains operated light fitting with a 10m cable and an RCD plug for safety. The aluminium and glass light fitting is fully enclosed with rubber seals to stop water getting into the electrics and is supplied with a 25W Black Light Blue Actinic Bulb.

The Actinic bulb and light fitting make this safe in use, even with people around the trap. The light fitting is attached to the light board with two bolts and wing nuts so can easily be removed for transporting separately.

Features:

Panels: FSC Certified 9mm Exterior Grade European Birch Plywood & 3mm Polycarbonate
Entrance Slot: 25 mm wide
Finish: Treated with black water-based non-toxic non-volatile wood treatment
Dimensions: Box excluding light - height: 41cm, Overall width: 44cm, Overall Length: 41cm. Overall height including light fitting: 62cm
Bulb: 240V 25W Black Light Blue Actinic ES fitting
Light Enclosure: Aluminium and Glass with Rubber Seals 26cm high x 13cm diameter
Cable: 10 metres
Plug: UK 13A plug fused at 3A with integrated RCD protection
Weight: Total 8.5 kg (Box 7 kg; Electrics 1.5 kg)
