- ... A study of responses by Culicoides spp. to light traps with light-emitting diodes (LEDs) confirmed that the livestock virus vector, Culicoides brevitarsis Kieffer, was preferentially attracted to green light. Four species shown previously to respond to blue light exhibited significantly higher responses to ultraviolet (UV) light. Field trials comparing green LEDs with incandescent lights in New So ...
