In Lieu of a MV light

I know MV lights seem to be the standard for moth collecting and the
higher the intensity the better, but they can be expensive if one has to
buy a generator. How does a simple Coleman lantern compare? This is what
I have always used. I know it will draw moths from a smaller area
because it is not as intense as a MV light, but will it generally draw
the the same species as a MV, or is a MV superior in this respect?
