Is it true that LED lights do not attract insects?

Most insects are primarily attracted to Ultra-violet rays to help them forage, navigate and select mates. For example Indian moths are attracted to UV-365nm and green light-500nm. LEDs do not have UV content and hence do not attract so many insects compared to conventional light sources.
