Quite often, insects ruin a good outdoor party or event. There are very few ways to get rid of the little pests while outdoors. To keep them from biting, one must be able to endure the smell that comes with most bug sprays. Installing LED bug lights around the outside of your home, or outdoor entertaining space, is one measure that can be taken to reduce the amount of insects in the area.
According to greentechmedia.com, moths and other flying insects are drawn to colors of the blue end of the light spectrum, more specifically ultraviolet lights. Scientists say this is because these types of insects are nocturnal and are only able to see blue and white lights in the dark. They also believe that flying insects use the moon as a navigational tool, and become confused once confronted with the light of an artificial light. They linger around the light source because they can no longer see the light from the moon and are afraid to venture out into the dark with nothing to guide them. The heat the bulbs give off is another appealing quality to insects.
The color emitted by LED bug light bulbs is not as clearly seen by nocturnal insects; therefore do not attract them to the source. They also do not radiate any heat, producing another unattractive quality. Replacing the outdoor lights with yellow LED bug lights will provide enough light to entertain and will keep the bugs away. Other insects, such as spiders, that are not fazed by UV lights will be kept at a distance due to the significant decrease of the other insects that they feed on in the area.
Another method used to keep bugs away from your home is to turn on spotlights and LED floodlights. These particular lights direct the light away from the house, instead of on it, which also leads the bugs away from the house. If LED bulbs are placed inside these lighting fixtures, insects will not be enticed by them in the least bit. Virtually all LED lights do not emit any UV or white lights and provide much less heat, unlike incandescent bulbs. Therefore, installing solely LED light bulbs around your home is an effective way to ward off insects at night.
There are no harmful chemicals released from the LED Bug Repellent Bulb or any other type of LED light bulb. LED bug lights are as energy efficient as regular LED bulbs, and will last a great deal longer than any other type of light bulb, allowing them to be lit throughout the night, every night. Keeping LED bulbs lit near entrance ways to your home will prevent bugs from entering your home.
