More about Gilbert

Gilbert was founded by Don Gilbert, who after working as a distributor for electrocuting light traps. Gilbert realized that there was a need for a new light trap design and after failing to convince the manufacturer he worked for in improving the design, he set out to do it himself. 

In 1967, Gilbert designed the first enclosed "escape-resistant" insect light trap. It was also the first light trap to obtain a U.L. listing. The following year, he came out with the first wall-mount light trap, which made it possible to place a trap down low where the fly is most active and responsive. In 1972, he patented the first glueboard light trap.

With an engineering background, he set out to pioneer a new industry. Gilbert is now one of the leading makers of fly light traps worldwide.
