Leds

Led's have a different wave length pattern, bugs do not like them..confuses them in flight...kind of like a laser light beam.....the more you have the fewer bugs you will have...in retro:

The yellow or amber lights are perfect at keeping your entry threshold mosquito free...

Interesting.. Remind me not to buy those new LED Mosquito zappers ... But those are UV / IR LED's.... Maybe it's the low UV potential given off by white LED's vs. conventional bulbs and florescent's which give off plenty. But in the summer I did see Mosquito's circling and resting on a bettery operated LED lanturn I had. Also I saw smaller(baby) ones resting on my led dome lights and the ceiling around them but none on or arround the red led dome lights I have up front.


edit: Found a scientific article on mosquitoes and LED's.
