Which reminds me of the story about a man whos wife tried to become a working girl to bing in some extre money. After her first night out, The next morning she came home rather bedragelled with $24 dollars and 25 cents. The Husband said. Who gave you the 25 cents ? She responded......................................... ..............EVERYONE !
And that reminds me of a story about how prostitutes observe the Sabbath and do not work on that day. Everyone knows that seven days makes a hole weak! Now back to the lighting thread, already in progress.

I have a white LED on a motion detector, a white LED with an Amber lens by the front door, a custom built 12 watt Amber LED scare light, and LED's in the side bays.. ALL draw bugs.
Dunno where this tale got started but it's not true

The LED tale is humorous. I have LED lights in the porch lights on the stick house, spiders still love the lamps for nesting.

I put an LED in my outdoor with clear kens. We'll see what happens. My wife is the reader and reads her iPad. It's back lit so you can use it in the dark. Now the big question --- will that attract bugs to her lap We're going on a trip in a month and may learn the answer to the bug lap dance question. Can't wait.

There will be bugs on the iPad, guaranteed. All mine are Amber just because I like that look outdoors; not so harsh.. Don't know who flies to what specific wavelength, but it's way more than pure IR

had white..it drew bugs which I didnt mind except for them going in the door when we did. Changed the bulb to a yellow bulb...far less bugs to contend with...but far less light output as well
