Insects Are Attracted To UV
The eye of the fly is made up of hundreds of tiny hexagonal lenses, which form a curved lattice across the of the eye. Unlike humans, flies can see ultraviolet light, due to the complex makeup of their eyes. Insects such as the House Fly, which are attracted to light, are said to be phototactic. All light sources emit some level of UV and it is this UV that flying insects actively search out, mistaking it for the sun's rays. Flies are most attractive to UV light between 350 and 370 nm in wavelength, most noticeably at 365 nm. This UV peak falls in the middle of the UVA spectrum. Ultraviolet fly traps are safer to use than indoor sprays.
How Does An Ultraviolet Tube Work?
Ultraviolet light is created by a fluorescent tube, containing a mixture of inert gases, a phosphor coating and a tiny amount of mercury. When the tube is fed electricity, the current flows through the gas mixture, which acts both to conduct the electricity and to ignite the tube. The mercury atoms absorb the energy of the current. This causes the atoms to become unstable.
BLB blacklights, by contrast, are easy to spot with a dark blue filter that covers the bulb. The filter blocks most visible light, leaving only a faint violet glow when the bulb is turned on. BLB blacklights are used for special effects and inspections such as mineral analysis.
