Radiation emitted by light sources are responsible for attracting insects towards it. A series of experiments have confirmed that a narrow band of infra-red radiation emitted by light sources attract insects. A study was conducted on moths. It was observed that, only the males of the species got attracted towards the light source, mistaking it for female moths.
