Trying an experiment to see if these lights attract bugs for night feeding. So far, lots of little bugs flying around. If nothing else, I think it looks cool...

Had anyone else tried this?

I got some cheap UV LED's and put them in some solar lights stakes and placed them in pots of sundews. It did attract a lot of insects but mostly moths. Normal LED lights will not attract insects they go for the UV or black light range.

Ooh that looks like some secret VFT Night Market.

Sorry, I know that's not helpful, but it does look cool :lol:
