Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 123easy Disappointing bug light bulb
I should have listened to the review that these bulbs actually attract bugs - at least that was my experience. I left one regular light in place and installed one of the bug light bulbs and the bug light bulb had more bugs around it than the regular bulb. I returned the bug light bulbs and elected to just unscrew the regular bulbs until the bug season passes. I really wish it worked better!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bud7 Great Bulbs - Not Dimmable - Reduce Bugs
I switched my regular 60 watt bug lights for these CFL bulbs to save energy. They produced the same amount of light and bug 'defense' as the regular bug bulbs and are quite attractive overall. Two warnings however: 1) they DO NOT work with a DIMMER, flickering and/or totally shutting down; and 2) they do not totally eliminate bugs but do greatly reduce the amount, significantly more than normal 'white' bulbs. Other reviews of bug bulbs are critical when bugs are not completely eliminated. To me a significant reduction is a reasonable expectation.

I received my order quicker than anticipated and the bulbs seem to be doing their job. I don't notice as many bugs around the doors as previously with regular cfl bulbs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by centerstate54 Worst bulb purchase ever -- It attracts more bugs
I bought this bulb to help eliminate some bugs. I had a yellow bug light that burned out but it had always performed satisfactory. I had ordered that one online but I thought I would try this one from Home Depot. I ordered it online and picked it up at the store -- service was adequate. After trying this bulb for longer than four weeks, every night it attracts more bugs than I have ever had outside the door. I might as well used a regular bulb as compared to a "bug light bulb". Oh wait, maybe I read it wrong, it's a bug light so the bugs love it and are really attracted to it. I would not recommend it -- I ordered a great one from the online bulb place -- I now have a tiny fraction of bugs. What a difference getting the product that works properly. Got rid of the Home Depot bulb.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by icecreamshop Excellent, long-lasting bulb
Use a dozen of these bulbs outside a seasonal ice cream stand in upstate NY. Bulbs work well and have lasted for years. The enclosure protects the bulb and is safer to use than an ordinary yellow pigtail CFL. Our only problem is in the off-season when the shop is closed, one or two bulbs go missing every year. Apparently, others like them as well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gfd1182 GREAT BUG BULB
I HATE WHEN BUGS COME TO THE LIGHT WHEN YOUR TRYING TO ENJOY A SUMMERS NIGHT ON THE PATIO. I CAME ACROOS THIS BUG BULB (NEVER KNEW IT EXISTED). THIS BULB IS GREAT ON MOST TEXAS NIGHTS IT REDUCED BUGS BY 100%, OF COURSE YOU WOULD GET THE OCCASIONAL BUG HERE AND THERE. THIS IS A GREAT INVESTMENT I'M GOING TO CHANGE ALL MY OUTDOOR BULBS TO THESE. THE 60W RATING IS PERFECT ESPECIALLY IF YOUR FIXTURES ARE IN PAIRS. ONE LIGHT MAY BE TOO DIMM.

These bulbs work well but are hard to find so we were happy to find them on homedepot.com since they were not available in the store.

This light was just the right size and brightness to put in my new outdoor lights. They make a warm soft light that makes the approach to our house a safe path to walk. Definitely a good buy.
