Most of the high output options don't come cheap. Suggest you search in CandlePowerForums before you make your purchase. There have been quite a number of threads about UV flashlights.
On a side note, Nicky Bay has some awesome scorpion pictures on his blog. Truly a macro master. *kowtow*

Use the TM26 and all the nocturnal creatures will probably think it is daytime. Or maybe suffer permanent vision damage.

To add to what has been discussed earlier. If you are considering using LED flashlights, then do consider the colour temperature of the LED emitter used. Ideally, you'd like to get a high CRI LED or very least a neutral or warm tint emitter for photography or videography. A lot of the off the shelf lights use cool tint emitters (e.g. most of the nightcore lights), so you may have to play around with the white balance.
