Lights manufactured to produce Ultraviolet and high blue color spectrums attract bugs more than any other lights. The appropriate wavelength suitable for attracting different bugs lies in the range of 300-650nm. Ultra violet sits below the visible spectrum in the 300-400nm portion off that range. Unfortunately the 400nm to 650nm is still over half of the visible spectrum. Therefore, any light source producing a wavelength of range 300-650nm has the potential of concentrating different bugs around itself. Some light sources that attract bugs include mercury vapor lamps, white fluorescent, and white incandescent lights. We also wholesale Floodlight With Stand.
Mercury vapor lights produce beams of light from chemical changes in the mercury atoms embedded in the spectral lamps. Different wavelengths ranging from 184.5 to 1014 nm are produced by these lights. The wavelength emission caters to the range most preferred by insects (300-650nm). Examples of mercury lamps include the Low-, medium-, and high-pressure vapor lamps.
Compact fluorescent lights produce a wavelength range between 400-700 nm. The energy system of fluorescent lamps is responsible for converting between 5-22% of the power consumed into the light on the visible spectrum. These lights also produce colors like red, blue, and green with several gradations. The diversity in the light produced is responsible for the attraction of different bugs. The fluorescent lights produce light beams that give off lights like warm white, cool white, and full spectrum.
Filament lamps also have a higher attraction capacity for the bugs. Filament lamps produce light with a color temperature range between 2,800-6,200 kelvins. These color temperatures also produce different color qualities which are bug attractive. The outcome is congestion of the bugs around the filament lamp. The filament temperature can rise to 400 degrees Celsius. However, most of the temperature and heat generated are reduced by the vacuum and the glass coating around the filament wire. The reduced heat provides a warm environment for the bugs which may increase the attraction capacity.
Metal halide lamps and High-Pressure Sodium lamps are highly ranked in attracting different bugs. Most Metal halide lamps produce a color temperature of 4,250 kelvins that gives a combination of pure white and warm white light. Metal halides have been found to attract more bugs compared with the LED lights producing the same kelvins because of the rarefaction principle. Furthermore, the metal halides have ultraviolet light produced from the lamps which is a bug attractant.
The presence of ultraviolet in any light must not be ignored and neglected. Crucial attention must be directed to the light during calibration in the manufacturing process. Reduction in the ultraviolet emissions of the different lights will reduce the flight-to-light tendency of several bugs promoting eco-protection.
