Solar Powered Insect Trap – An Ecofriendly Technology for pest Management

P K Sastry


The solar powered insect trap is environmentally friendly, energy-saving, easy to use and independent of the electricity. Taking into consideration of the actual situation, this paper utilized the sensor to access to environmental information and then designed the fuzzy control circuit, aiming to carry out fuzzy control for the operating conditions of solar LED pest control light. Based on the phototaxis of targeted pests, it adopted the strobe light way to reduce power consumption and save energy, thus extending the working hours in the rainy days.
