Light emitting diodes lights use a semiconducting material to turn electricity into visible light. Unlike other types of lighting, such as fluorescent lamps, LED fixtures do not emit ultraviolet light.
LED lights do not emit any amount of ultraviolet light because the light comes from the heat of the lamp.
Bugs and insects are attracted to ultraviolet light, hence the reason most bug zappers contain a UV-emitting lamp. Using an LED light can reduce the number of bugs around your home, according to Pegasus Lighting.
Some LED lights are so intense they require a warning label to tell people not to stare at them, according to TheLEDLight.com. You should closely consider the intensity of LED lights to stay on the safe side.
