From my experiences I know that he best way to get rid of them is a glowstick. Just toss it away and they will hopefully chase it. Charge lanterns give them a weird animation that stuns them for a second, but then gives them the buff. When the oriphaces on its back open up and fill with light, they have the light buff. In my opinion they have terrible agro range unless you are giving off light.
