Say Goodbye to Buggy Camping Nights with Amber Lights

Camping trips are all about spending time outdoors, enjoying nature, and making memories. But there's always one thing that can ruin the fun - bugs. Nothing spoils a good camping trip quite like being swarmed by mosquitoes, flies, and other insects. But what if we told you that there's a way to keep those pesky bugs away? Amber lights to the rescue!

Amber lights are known for emitting a warm, orange-ish light that is less attractive to insects, including mosquitoes and moths. This is because insects are naturally drawn to bright, blue and white lights, but are less attracted to warm, amber lights. This is why amber lights are often referred to as "anti bug lights."

But why exactly are bugs less attracted to amber lights?

It's all to do with the color spectrum. Amber lights emit light in the 590-nanometer range, which is less attractive to insects, as compared to blue or white lights that emit light in the 450-nanometer range, which does attract insects.

A study conducted by the University of California, Riverside found that moths are attracted to bright lights because they mistake them for the moon and become disoriented. This results in the moth flying toward the light, which can be fatal. However, the study also found that moths are not attracted to amber lights, which makes them a great choice for outdoor lighting.

Not only are amber lights less attractive to insects, but they are also easier on the eyes, making it easier for you to see and navigate around your campsite at night. And, they are more energy-efficient than traditional lights, which is always a plus when you're camping and may not have access to electrical outlets.
