Anyone tried a (true) UV LED based moth trap? Answered
I have also commented on a seemingly related old dead thread but hope for better luck here.
Firstly, did anyone ever make any progress with building and successfully using an LED based moth lure/trap?
Secondly and if yes, any advice?
I am currently in the process of building a lure/trap that will use reflected wavelengths (interchangeable LED head) based on the principle that Moths (as pollinators) and flowers (as pollinatees) see and reflect UV light respectively and if that is true then surely i can take advantage of this to build a targeted trap to trick the moths in. note i will be testing UV wavelength (365nm), violet (400nm) IR and white LEDs.
