Signals and fights insects
Insects are attracted by the ultraviolet (UV) light from the insect trap. The LedsProtect’s special UV LEDs use a UV frequency range that is most attractive to insects, making them fly towards the light and get caught in the water. The water basin will also look like a “UV bath” to the insects so it is irresistible to them. The LedsProtect UV-Pro catches a great diversity of insects, including moths, beetles and mosquitos. The LedsProtect trap is adjusted with a light-sensitive switch that automatically switches on the lamp when it is getting dark. Many damaging insects are nocturnal or are active during nighttime.
