I have a friend over in FLorida who has an issue with scorpions in the house. Now I know reading portals like these scorpions do light up under UV light, But I'm not sure about the right wavelength to use. Also, it should be budget friendly and if possible AA or AAA battery for ease of use, although they would consider CR123/ 18650 if need be.

Do you guys know of any decent UV lights that fit the brief ?

Thanks in advance.

I live in Scotland and it's safe to say scorpions are non existent here, so my knowledge on these critters is zilch !

Thanks in advance.
