BobBarley18 Posted June 5, 2017 Report Share Posted June 5, 2017 So I'm looking at starting to blacklight for beetles etc. at night this summer. However I'm up in the air on what blacklight to get. I don't want to spend too much on a full setup with a car battery and pvc pipe and all that so I figured the battery operated UV flashlights would be enough. However, I don't know which is the best to use. Here are the two that I'm looking at: $20 one https://www.amazon.com/Escolite-Fla...7&sr=8-12&keywords=blacklight+battery+powered $40 one https://www.amazon.com/uvBeast-Blac...ons&keywords=blacklight+battery+powered&psc=1 Now obviously I would like to spend only $20 over $40 but if the $40 one is exponentially better then it could be worth it. Thoughts? If there are others you guys prefer let me know. Thanks! For those of you that don't have a clue what I'm talking about, basically I'm going to stake a large, white tarp overlooking a hill that I know has tons of wildlife (with permission from the landowner) and angle the UV light at it to attract as many insects and other Arthropods as I can. I want to use this method so I can pick and choose what to collect and what to leave. Any tips are appreciated, thanks a bunch! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
