Lamp Reminder

Lamps emit ultraviolet radiation, so it is important to remember to change at the end of their recommended optimum lighting hours.

  • Hummingbirds originate from an area that has a very high UV index.

The Arcadia Bird Lamp has been developed in order to provide an artificial source of ultraviolet (UV) light, which is essential to captive birds denied exposure to direct sunlight.

"The sun projects all of the terrestrial wavelengths of light from UVB to Infra-Red-B into our world. This is a single source of energy, supplying us all with heat, visible light and UV. It is therefore important that we do not split up heat and light sources within captivity. All heat and light sources should be grouped closely alongside one another in order for an animal to utilise this energy naturally, self-regulating its own exposure as it has need. Zoning is vital to the correct supply of re-created terrestrial light. This will allow an animal to 'self-select' or 'self-regulate' its own level of exposure within its own biological cycles, from controlled heat and Full-Spectrum light to cool and shade, just as it would in the wild." - J C-S January 2018 ...
