World Leader Since 1967
Flying Venus
US PATENT #5,974,727

Sure the Gilbert® Wall-Sconce Flytrap will out-catch previous wall-sconce flytraps. Sure, it will create an elegant ambience while secretly providing 24-hour, non-stop, silent capture of filthy, disgusting flies. And, yes, with one finger, Flying Venus' magnetic face swings up for easy glueboard replacement.

However, the most important flytrap in an establishment is the big one placed down low, in the back room, between the dumpster and the kitchen.

Champion Industrial Trap
(Gilbert® Model 601T) renamed
The Don in 1993.
Don Gilbert designed, manufactured and installed the first insect light trap, with an enclosed catch tray, in a soup plant, in 1967. Over the next two decades, he pioneered the industrial use of professional flytraps. Don's name became so prevalent in America's food plants and pharmaceutical laboratories that Gilbert® was granted a registered trademark.

Don's son, David, succeeded his father as president in 1993, renaming the number one industrial insect light trap (for decades), "The Don". Years of research, at his father's side enabled David to design the superior wall-sconce trap (at left), defend the industry from over zealous standard writers (see UV Safety below), and continue to lead the way in the creation of the science of Insect Light Traps (see New Super Drop Tested Lamps).
