Don’t let bugs ruin you this summer.
To save the night, home expert Rosalynn Daniels posted a video showing how to easily keep bugs away from outdoor lights.
In a quick switch, Daniels changed her outdoor lighting from white bulbs to amber bulbs.
The expert said that with the yellow lightbulbs there was “not a single flying bug in sight”.
“I promise it’s a game changer!” said Daniels.
To keep the pests away from guests, consider swapping out your lightbulbs in shared outdoor spaces.
Doorways and outdoor dining areas are two of the most important places to change the light since people spend a lot of time in these places.
According to The Spruce, the yellow lightbulbs can be used anywhere a regular lightbulb can be used.
“The only difference is that when you turn it on, you get yellow light instead of white light.”
“The most common are standard A19 60-watt bulbs with a medium (E26) screw base,” said The Spruce.
A four-pack of these yellow A19 60-watt bulbs can be purchased from Amazon for only about $12, but can also be found at many home and hardware stores.
The Spruce reported that insect expert Debbie Hadley said beetles confuse white light with the moon, which they use to find a straight path.
“The close resemblance between a round, white lightbulb and the round, white moon makes the possibility of confusing the two very real,” said The Spruce.
Enjoying the quick tip, many viewers said, “Okay, jot it down!” and “Off to buy yellow lightbulbs.”
