Hey everyone,
Well i just thought i would ask although it does make a difference to me. I currently use a red lightbulb in the glider room to be able to see them without disturbing them. I saw Blue light bulb in the store today and was going to get it but was not sure it this would bother the glider or hurt the glider. Does it make a difference as long as it is not a bright color being produced??..would like people
's opinions. thanks

Hi,
I used to use the red light, but switched to the blue light about 6 months ago. I love it, the blue is more calming to the eyes. It won't hurt the gliders at all, I thing they like it better also.

We've used both red and blue 25 watt bulbs. It doesn't seem to make a difference to the gliders. As long as its not white, it seems to be okay with them. We have a red one in now, and the next one will be blue (out here in the middle of nowhere, red's not always available), and we've had blue before and they did fine.

It hurt my eyes too, and one night I woke up startled, got confussed and thought the house was onfire, lol. That red glow, I can laugh now but I know I scared my hubby to death that night. (We leave the light on for them all night) I will stick with the blue from now on. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/roflmao.gif" alt="" />

Hey! I saw this on the list of things to get but am wondering why you have to have a red light bulb. Is that for when the suggies are awake in the night for the room they will be in? Has blue been okay? Just curious, I had never found a direct answer for what it is for.

<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/littleglider.gif" alt="" /> [:"magenta"] red and blue bulbs are cause gliders are nocturnal. they are active at night, sleep in the day. if you use a white light, they may go straight to sleep, even if it is playtime! but they cannot see blue or red, so they would not notice. hope this helps.

Blue lights are actually best in my opinion. Blue light is actually intended to mimic moon light...
