looking for DC timers for UV traps

Greetings Leps-L:

Does anyone out there know of a commercial source for 12V DC timers that
would work with Bioquip's 12V battery operated UV light traps? We've had no
end of problems with the photosensors; the incomplete darkness and cool
temperatures of northern Alberta lead to many trap failures. We'd like to
convert to timers instead, but I can't find a commercial supplier. Can
anyone help? 

Looking forward to getting my UV traps deployed this field season. But we
got fresh snow over easter, and it was-20C (that's below zero F) overnight
here in Edmonton. But spring has gotta come soon!
