As mosquito-borne illnesses spread, one company hopes finely tuned lights can keep them in check.

Lighting Science Group, a Florida company that specializes in the application of light-emitting diode (LED) technology, thinks there is a better way to fight the Zika virus without blanketing our population centers in toxic bug sprays and pesticides.
The company is part of a growing field of research that seeks to control pests using light.

Working with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s entomology lab in Gainesville, Fla., Lighting Science began testing its light-based bug traps this spring.

“There is room for improvement in existing trapping technology,” says USDA research entomologist Daniel Kline.

He’s specifically interested in the idea of targeting insects associated with diseases like Zika and malaria.
