Interesting facts about LEDs that you may not know

LED insects
  1. LEDs don’t attract as many insects as other traditional light sources as they have very little UV content
  2. Good quality LEDs can easily have a lifetime which exceeds 50,000 hours
  3. Blue LEDs can help keep food fresh – they have been proved to have a strong antibacterial effect on major foodborne pathogens, and are now being used in fridges.
  4. LEDs are great for horticulture – deep blue (450nm) and hyper red (660nm) provide the light for photosynthesis, and far red (730nm) controls the plant from germination to vegetative growth and flowering.
