Probably most people know that moths are attracted to light, but probably most people don't know that there are actually many moths that are active during the day, even visiting flowers like butterflies do. Let's take a look at how to attract moths so that you can photograph them. Isn't that cool? You don't have to go look for most of them . . . they come to you!
Any light will attract moths, but certain types of light will attract them better than others. The two most popular light sources that are used to attract moths are UV (ultra violet) lights and MV (mercury vapor) lights.The easiest and least expensive of these two by far is the UV light, so we will focus on those. You can now purchase UV LED light bulbs, and UV LED light strips.
