Solar Insect Light Traps For Capturing Small Insects

Arrow Down

Product Introduction

Flying insect light traps a compact and efficient device specifically engineered for capturing small-sized flying insects. Boasting remarkable capture capabilities, these solar insect light traps are an indispensable tool for monitoring and controlling insects, particularly those that pose a threat to crops and agricultural produce.

The blue light insect traps' small footprint and robust design make them suitable for a wide range of applications, including agricultural research, farmland monitoring, and pest prevention in tea gardens. They effectively trap and monitor harmful insect populations, enabling precise pest control and mitigation strategies.

Product Features

High Capture Rate

The reverse suction structure can capture a variety of small insects within a certain range, with strong suction power and a high capture rate.

Anti-Escape Design

Once insects are captured, they are difficult to escape, ensuring the intact preservation of insect bodies in the collection net.

Targeted Light Source

Equipped with LED light sources of specific wavelengths to attract small pests, emitting low-power light at specific wavelengths for high reliability and energy efficiency.

Multi-Functional Control

Supports automatic applications such as light control and time control, providing convenient operation. Easy to install and use,ready for immediate use upon powering on.

How it works

The Solar Insect Light Trap operates through a sophisticated combination of components including specific wavelength ultraviolet lights, DC direct current fans, and a programmable control panel. The control panel is programmed to set fixed working time periods, initiating the LED light source and DC fans to commence the lure and capture process.


During daylight hours, solar panels absorb sunlight, converting it into electricity via electronic circuits, and storing it in the battery. At night, this stored energy powers the lights and fans within the trap. Automatically activated in low light conditions, the lights and fans can operate for four to five hours.


Throughout this time frame, the trap emits ultraviolet light, attracting the most active harmful nocturnal or flying insects. These insects are then drawn into the trap's suction structure by the powerful suction fan. Once captured in the collection net, the insects struggle to escape and eventually perish due to exhaustion and lack of sustenance, preserving their bodies intact for further analysis.

Great Perform on Trapping Pests

The insect light trap demonstrates significant efficacy in attracting and trapping pests. As shown in the image above, the solar insect light trap outperformed the sticky trap, capturing approximately 1064 insects in a single night compared to only 52 insects by the sticky trap. This experiment was conducted within the same tea garden environment, showcasing the superior effectiveness of the solar insect light trap in pest control.

Researched and Developed by The Chinese Tea Research Institute

Device structure light source height and climatic factors can potentially affect the catch

The solar insect light trap with an anti-escape design was researched and developed by Lei Bian, a seasoned professional, in collaboration with our general manager Huihua Ji and their respective teams. Their expertise and dedication culminated in the creation of this innovative trap, which has been detailed in a published study article in Plant magazine.


This study highlights the significant impact of device structure, light source height, and climatic factors on the efficacy of light traps in catching target pests, particularly the tea leafhopper, Empoasca onukii. The introduction of an anti-escape cover in the newly designed light trap led to a substantial increase in catches of E. onukii while effectively preventing their escape. Field assessments revealed that the optimal trapping window for the light trap coincided with specific post-sunset periods, positively correlated with sunset times. Moreover, maintaining the light source within the optimal height range above the tea canopy proved crucial for maximizing leafhopper catches. However, the efficacy of the light trap decreased during the autumn peak period due to environmental factors. Nonetheless, the high efficacy observed during the summer months suggests that the newly designed light trap holds promise for reducing E. onukii populations in tea gardens. Overall, these findings underscore the potential of the newly designed light trap as a valuable tool for pest management strategies in tea cultivation.
