Customer Questions & Answers

does this bulb provide UVB

I have an Anole Lizard in a terrarium and it is suggested to provide UVB for the health of the Lizard. A black light is suggested for night time use as well. Seems I can kill two birds with one stone.

Can this be used in insect traps?

I need to find a UV lamp between 350 and 375 nanometers of this size for insect traps, but this doesn't tell me anything about nanometers.
