This summer season is the first one that most of my ceiling lights were LED's. I did notice that the normally present hoard of gnats that were around the regular light, were not around the LED's.
Please let us know how it works. I may still do that for a nightlight type of thing in our commode room.
I can say 100% that they can see the light just fine. We replaced all of our lights with LED this last winter and for all of our subsequent trips they are flocking to them inside and out without fail. Even our porch lights are LED and they don't stop coming. Where ever you got the information on that has got to be wrong and more than likely trying to sell LED lights.
