LED Lights/incandescent Lamp, Fluorescent Lamp, Who Is The Most Difficult To Recruit A Mosquito?
Feb 23, 2017

The University of Bristol, University of Bristol) scientists to a new study shows that household LED lights for public nuisance insects such as stinging flies much less attractive than traditional incandescent bulbs.

The team also highlights the other sexually transmitted diseases is hot flies against doing the urgency of further research, including as a result, such as malaria and village card hot (zika Fever) harmful diseases such as the carriers of the pathogens of mosquitoes.

The study by the natural environment research council and the British lighting manufacturers Integral LED funding, in southwest England 18 places on-site test, using custom trapping device, using LED lamp, incandescent and fluorescent lamps, to carefully identify more than 4000 insect. The results showed that LED to attract four times than traditional incandescent lamp to reduce the number of insects, is only half of the compact fluorescent lamps.

It is worth noting that for stinging flies (culicoides mosquitoes, some of the species is the carrier of wild animal diseases), 80% attracted to incandescent lamp, 15% attracted to compact fluorescent lamps, the LED lamps and lanterns of two different attracted only 2% to 2%.

Andy Dr Wakefield for Gareth professor of biological sciences at the university of Jones and Stephen Harris, the dominant field research project. Dr Wakefield said: "we in the traditional tungsten lamp attract stinging flies were surprised by the number, we don't know why, but we know some insects at night using hot clues to find warm-blooded host, so maybe they were attracted by the quantity of heat of incandescent bulbs.

As joint sponsors of the study, the Integral LED played an important role in project debugging, and provides the technical and financial support.

Integral LED marketing director, says Sanjiv Kotecha said: "as a lighting manufacturers, LED lamps and lanterns of insect low attraction is confirmed, this is what we would like to see, energy-saving advantages of solid-state lighting are well known, but the health benefits of also began to be revealed."
