Do LED Lights Attract Bugs?

You've probably heard of different lights that help decrease or repel bugs around your house. For the most part, there's no one magical bulb to repel all bugs from your property, but you can certainly decrease their gathering points by utilizing different lights. If you use LED lights in your outdoor lighting system, you are likely to reduce the bug population on your property at least to normal levels without the aid of insecticides.

Here's why!

What Light Attracts Bugs?

Did you know that humans can only see certain kinds of light? "Visible light" is electromagnetic radiation that has a wavelength of 400 to 700 nanometers. Creepy crawlies tend to be attracted to shorter wavelengths, usually 400 to 600 nm. These wavelengths are typically found in UV bulbs or those that produce heat.

Using LED lights, the light they produce gives off little heat and uses longer wavelengths. They also produce little to no UV lighting, which means that overall, the bulbs in LED lights produce nothing that insects find attractive. They will not congregate around light sources featuring these lights, reducing the population of bugs on your property.
