In this paper, we proposed an insect avoidance and temptation system based on LED(Light Emitting Diode) lighting. In order to prevent contamination due to insect penetration in the food distribution and storage stages, it is necessary to analyze the activity patterns of harmful insects according to food, space and season. In addition, there is a need for an IoT(Internet of Things)-based system that can be remotely monitored and controlled because it is difficult for an administrator to access at night or a remote place. Therefore, we designed the insect avoidance and temptation system based on LED lighting using IoT. In particular, in order to avoid and tempt harmful insects that occur differently depending on food, space, and season, the dynamic wavelength band is controlled by one LED light to control physical access to specific harmful insects. In order to find out the avoidance wavelength according to the harmful insects, we have developed a real-time LED lighting control technology that can produce various wavelengths in one LED light.
