Scientist Working on LED Light Bulb Designed NOT to Attract Bugs


Bugs are often the biggest annoyance when hanging out outdoors with the lights on. In response to this problem, one scientist is working on an LED light bulb designed to help you spend more time outside on summer nights. 

Insects can quickly put a damper on any outdoor gathering, and unfortunately, many of them are attracted to artificial lighting. Luckily, someone is working on this problem, which may mean longer summer nights under the starry sky in the future. Travis Longcore, a professor of spatial sciences at the University of California, has been working closely with Royal Philips on the issue, according to the New York Times. Their goal is to create a bulb that doesn’t attract pesky insects as soon as it’s switched on. Read more at Digital Trends.
