Keep Bugs Away with Exterior LED Lights

A summer party in the backyard is something everyone enjoys. Perhaps you are looking forward to having friends over for a barbecue, sips on a drink, or simply catching up with old friends. You might be looking forward to spending a peaceful evening on your patio reading alone.

You don’t want to have to deal with moths, flies and other insects that are more common in warm weather months. There is a way to keep these pests away. You can invest in LED lighting for your yard.

Some bugs swarm lights

Wondering why bugs are so attracted to outdoor lights? Positive phototaxis is a trait that indicates insects are attracted by light. Moths and flies are two examples of insects that can’t resist the temptation to hover near lights. More bugs can be attracted to your yard if there are more lights.

LED lights are different

Compact fluorescent lights attract twice as many insects as LED white lights. This is due to the fact that LED lights emit very little UV light and emit far less heat than traditional incandescent lamps. Specialized yellow LED bug lights attract very few insects. This is because they create a light that is almost impossible for most insects to see.

It’s time for you to take action now that you understand why you are being attacked by bugs. If you want to see fewer bugs this summer, consider installing LED lighting in your yard.
