why are moths and other insects attracted to light sources
Like a moth to a flame, er, lamp, insects are drawn to bright lights because they confuse the insects’ navigational systems. It’s a familiar sight, especially in the summertime: moths and other insects gathered around lights like lamps. Often, creatures entrained in such a glow get eaten by predators or overheat.
Bees do not sleep – but they do remain motionless to preserve vital energy for the next day of foraging. During the day, and out on their travels, bees eyes can detect a wide array of colour.
