    Blood Lights /Black Lights -Anybody use them?

    Has anybody tried the UV bloodlight/blacklight?

    What do you use, any good?

    My work involves the use of UV/blacklights and I can tell you that UV/blacklights do not make blood fluoresce.
    Rather, the blood absorbs the UV/blacklight so that all you see is a very dark patch where the blood is.
    I tried a very strong UV/blacklight one night to try to pick up a blood trail from a wounded fox and failed miserably.


    Cheers

    It amazes me as to how many Aussies are lurking on this forum as members of the Secret Squirrel Society.
