Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by STF Lasts "forever"
I bought my first bulb years ago after getting tired of changing out bulbs every month or two. This bulb has lasted many years and I'm so satisfied with it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dante CFL bug bulb
These CFL bug light bulbs do not work as a bug light. In fact the bulb appeared to draw bugs to it. Had to order online and simply a complete waste of time as had to return bulbs to Home Depot for credit. I realize now nothing works as a bug light.

The lightbulb died after 2 days, a little bit short of it's 7 year life span. I emailed home depot about a replacement but got no response.

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 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.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by AndyF 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 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.
