Above all, insect mortality affects our complex ecosystem and accelerates further species extinction among plants and animals. Among other things, artificial light disturbs insect flight patterns and influences the natural rhythms and behaviour of insects, animals and plants.
Recent scientific studies show that many insect species lack receptors for light in the red wavelength range and are therefore less responsive to red light. A paradigm shift toward warm or red light sources may provide sufficient light for the human eye while also protecting insects.
On the other hand, cool light from predominantly short-wave radiation is efficient and allows us to extend the daylight period in the cold months from autumn to winter for humans in an energy-conscious way.
