They’re Back!!! Bugs, That Is…

Bug lights promotion

This week’s promotion on Topbulb is all about bug lights. With the change to Daily Savings Time, the switch to Spring, and the lengthening of the days and more wet weather, it’s only a matter of time…

Bugs will be back in force sooner rather than later.

But you don’t have to suffer from creepy crawlies and flying insects when you stock up on bug lights.

How Do They Work?

But lights take advantage of insects’ visual systems. They can see light higher up on the color temperature scale, so blue and white light attracts bugs. (Incidentally, that’s why bug zappers — not to be confused with bug lights — use ultraviolet light to attract more bugs).

However, insects have trouble detecting light at the lower end of the spectrum. The more yellowish the light is, and the more bluish light is filtered out, the fewer bugs you’ll have.

Do Bug Lights Work Forever?

While bug lights are a great short-term solution and you’ll likely be able to enjoy the outdoors for a while longer than if you didn’t use one, bug lights aren’t foolproof.

Once a few insects make their way to your light, other bugs that prey on those initial ones will come to join the party. So you might have FEWER bugs, but over time, insects will be attracted to any light. They’re just less attracted to yellow bug lights.

So check out our full line of bug lights today, and stock up before summer starts and you’re stuck bar-b-queing with tons of bugs.

How Do Bug Lights Compare to Zappers?

I’m glad you asked that question. We’ve written a whole article on the benefits of bug lights over zappers. We encourage you to check it out.

Happy Easter Week!

    Well, at least you changed your opinion since April 24, 2014 (“One common way to keep these bugs away is to use a “bug light,” …”). Bug lights do not repel (keep away) insects. As stated–2 years later–they just attract fewer insects.

    Granted, it’s minor and all about syntax, but shouldn’t that be one of the hallmarks of a writer, publisher and editor–to be able to relay information briefly and concisely?
