tips on viewing at night?

i've put red plastic wrap over my flashlight, but as soon as i turn it on, i see a ton of stuff go scurring away, much too quick for me to identify. is there anyway i can watch at night without them seeing? is red plastic wrap not enough? maybe my flashlight is too strong? any tips on night viewing?

I use a blue LED flashlight, and moonlihgts. I am not sure if it makes a difference but it works for me.

The red plastic wrap might not block out enough of the other light specitrums. You can try to tripple or fourth layer the wrap.
