I read mosquitoes, as well as many other insects, can not see LED lights. They may not be as pretty but they will not attract the mosquitoes.

I've heard the same thing about bugs and LED lights too. I have an LED light over the entrance door, and so far so good for NOT attracting bugs.

Has anyone else had good experience with the LED or Amber colored lights not attracting bugs?
