Customer Questions & Answers

Are these bulbs yellow or soft white?

We have used bug lights for years but they only last a couple months. I found these on-line and the year life is much longer and we are interested in trying them but want a yellow that puts out yellow light. Your site says soft white light. I don't want to receive 20 light bulbs in a soft white output when my husband wants the yellow light output. Thank you for your honesty.

what are the dimensions of this bulb

I need to know the "height of the bulb" -- not including the screw base
Asked by: mary
I'm not sure of the exact dimensions, but the base is the same size as a regular light bulb and the bulb itself is about the same length as a regular incandescent bulb.

Is this bulb dimmable?

I have a porch light that is normally low, but when a motion sensor detects movement it switches to high. Will this bulb work with the two different brightness levels?
Asked by: ecragg
Yes, the bulb is dimmable.

bug lights

Why will bug yellow lights not work in outdoor sensor light fixtures?
Asked by: mainer
An incandescent yellow light will work with the daylight on/off sensor. A CFL light or LED light won't work with the sensor in my experience. I cannot say for sure exactly why, but I believe it is because the sensor is designed for a load in the range of 60W. The energy efficient CFL and LED draw much less power. By the way, I bought a yellow LED light (it was not labeled as a bug light) and it did NOT work as a bug light. The bugs seem as much attracted to it as any regular light. I have found that a yellow CFL bug light does work as a bug light. Hopefully someday soon they will make LED bug lights and on/off daylight sensors that will work with them.

60W Equivalent A19 Wet-Rated Outdoor CFL Bug Light Bulb is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from bug light 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best bug light I've used Have used this model in four outside lights for several years. Good brightness and excellent life. The open spiral CFL bulbs I have used don't last anywhere near as long as these..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bug Light Great bulb, has entended the life of all my outside lights and goes a great job of keeping 95% of the bugs away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bug Light? Maybe to attract .... Don't get me wrong, this is a great light and makes my house look good at night. The bulbs have been running every night, all night for about a year now. However, in Texas, maybe the bugs are different. I haven't actually seen any bugs but that's probably because half of the lizard population on my street is attracted to the light and hangs out on the wall around it. Also in my garage. Pretty sure that's because they know where to find an easy meal. If you look up at a sodium streetlight at night there's a bazillion bugs flying around it so forgive me if I have some doubt about this whole bug light theory thing. Maybe a marketing ploy to get you to cough up a couple of extra bucks for a light bulb.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.
