What is black light?


A black light, also referred to as an Ultra Violet Light is a bulb that emits a light that the human eye perceives as deep blue or violet. Most folks associate these lights as the ones that make your white clothes glow in a very dark room. In the pest control industry we know that these lights are highly attractive to flies and they are often used in fly light traps.
