What kinds of light best attract mosquitoes?

Mosquitoes and Light

If you want to keep insects away, you can use light of the appropriate wavelength to attract them. Strategically placed outdoor lighting can concentrate unwanted insects elsewhere. Mercury vapor lamps 150 to 200 feet away from occupied areas can divert nuisance insects away from high-traffic areas.

* While many pests are attracted to light, mosquitoes are not.
