A perfect lightbulb for bug haters
LED bulb doesn't emit UV rays that attract insects
LEDs continue to pop up everywhere, fromto , and one company from Japan is taking them to new frontiers in the great outdoors.
Like all LEDs, Iwasaki Electric's "Bouhantou" is remarkably efficient--it can last for 40,000 and requires far less energy to operate than standard bulbs. But Gizmowatch notes that it has one important distinction: The Bouhantou doesn't emit ultraviolet light, which means it won't attract insects.
And that, in our entomophobic opinion, is the best thing about it.
