UV LED flashlights

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else tried using UV LED flashlights as collecting lights? I picked one up on amazon that is pretty bright with 100 LEDs in it, and it seems to have worked decently well. I haven’t been in terribly productive areas for Black lighting so it is hard to tell how well it is actually working. They are terribly convenient to carry around, being completely self contained and relatively durable. Any other thoughts/comments?

Seems like a good setup; in the right places I have seen giant moths and fancy beetles flying to white and even yellow wall lamps, so a UV should not disappoint

I have one of those lightsabers. Pink was the only color available when I got mine. Flashlights are good for lighting up things like scorpions but these aren't as effective for bringing in beetles and moths in my experience.
