How to make mray lights invisible in reflections

How can I turn off specular reflections of light when using mental ray custom light shader? Thanks.

well not sure about this but try using mia_material (you can turn down or off all specular reflections in advanced rollout in material attributes)...definetely works for standard maya and mr area lights but not sure about ie physical_light custom mr shader...

Hope this helped a bit...

By setting specular balance to zero I got rid of it. Thanks for the tip!
