    Light pollution, the lights illuminating our nights, represent the second cause of extermination and disappearance of insect species after pesticides. It is also a cause of significant discomfort to human life. We will see how we can light up better, avoid parasite lights, without harming the rhythm of life in society or the animal species for which the night is essential to their survival.
