Metaphase has developed an LED spectrum that lends itself to poultry applications. The light does not disrupt current hen laying egg production; significantly reduces or in some cases eliminates parasitic mites from poultry; and spurs non-laying hens to start laying eggs… even in winter.
This fixture carries both a UL label and an EPA label. The EPA label affords Metaphase the authorization to manufacture insect repellent devices. There are no chemical pesticides necessary for use with the light… presenting itself as an “organic” solution. The IRD Poultry Light may reduce pecking and cannibalism… testing is being done to verify.

Not sure what type of lighting that you use, but the typical light used in the US for egg laying hens has been a very low level red light.
This creates the best atmosphere for the egg laying process (Cornell University).
We have been working with one of the top agricultural universities in the US. Recently they confirmed that the statements below are true, after they used our light… a “white LED” with a very low % of blue light. This technology has been confirmed not to suppress melatonin secretion when used.
• Does not disrupt laying hens
• Allows you to readily see what is on the floor
• Allows easier clean up and egg gathering
• Designed with Insect Deterrent Technology (eliminated parasitic mites)
