Re: Bugs in my garage

I picked up a "60W Equivalent" CFL bug light at Home Depot tonight and I'm afraid it's not looking good. The light does keep bugs away but the yellow tint doesn't look that great, and the advertised light output is a bit too ambitious. I would need at least two of these bulbs to light up my driveway like my current CFLs do.

You can buy no UV LED lamps. CFL = UV. I think the "yellow bulb" thing is overblown. They may reduce the bug draw, but not by much. In the summer, I see swarms or bugs around my neighbors yellow post light.

Can you recommend a specific model? I looked into LED bulbs but came across »www.energycircle.com/blog/2011/0···act-bugs while doing my research.

Just google "no UV led bulb" and they should come up.
