Hello kuku and welcome to the Community.


Some bugs are attracted to heat and others to light.  Some are attracted to cool light waves and others to warm light waves.  LED bulbs produce much less heat than incandescent, florescent or halogen light bulbs. Special yellow coated bulbs makes it difficult for most flying insects to see.


There is not one perfect outdoor lighting choose. That being said, the PHILIPS, or the FEIT yellow-colored LED bulbs are the best option.

         


 

To make them more effective, use a regular white bulb about 15 ft. to 20 ft. away. The bugs will be drawn to the white bulb leaving the area lighted by the yellow bulb nearly free of insects.

 

Spiders hang around light because their pray, (other insects), are attacked to the regular lights.  With the yellow lights, you will have less bugs and spiders. 

 

Thanks for your inquiry.

 

Charlotte
