Why are Bugs Attracted to Light?

At the beginning of the post, let's make clear first why bugs are attracted to light. There are two different features of bugs' reaction to light: positive phototaxis and negative phototaxis. Positive phototaxis means that a creature is instinctively attracted to light, while negative phototaxis makes a creature move away from light. That's why some insects are attracted to light while others are repelled by it. However, most of the flying insects exhibit positive phototaxis. So to take a cosily break after dinner or have a blast at your party in your yard or garden, bug lights could be the answer to your bug problem.

What are Bug Lights?

A bug light is a yellow light bulb, which emits a very warm color temperature that appears almost orange. As we know, light is divided into multiple wavelengths which are measured in nanometer(nm), and the visible light range of human and insects is different. To be more specific, humans eye can perceive a small band of wavelength in the light spectrum, from about 390 to 750 nm, while insects' visible wavelength range is slightly shifted to the right. The yellow, orange and red color temperature are the far end of the color temperature spectrum that many kinds of insects will escape in the opposite direction of the light. So taking advantage of this difference between the humans and insects, bug lights could keep flying insects away. Even better, this band of wavelength of bug lights causes the minimum visual fatigue to people's eyes, which is suitable for sleeping and reading.

Why Yellow Bug Bulbs are the Best Outdoor Lighting Options?

Though the natural instinct of bugs cannot be changed, you can replace your porch lights with new yellow bulbs that are less attractive to bugs. Why? Experiments proved that any wavelength higher than about 650nm is virtually invisible to most flying insects. From the light spectrum chart, you could see that warmer colors like red, orange and yellow have longer wavelengths than 650nm. Based on this, lighting manufacturers turned their eyes on warm yellow led bulbs that are suitable for outdoor use to get decent illumination while attracting fewest bugs. With yellow bug lights, you can get the security and comfort you love from your porch and yard lights and enjoy the sweet moments of after-dinner or parties in summertime without the dreaded cloud of bugs swarming towards your yards or gardens.
