To avoid having your home invaded by insects, firstly make sure your windows and doors are properly screened with your Freedom screens, but you may also want to watch what light bulbs you choose.

Researchers from The University of North Carolina set up an insect trap and turned on a single bulb inside. They found incandescent bulbs attract the most insects, while yellow-orange LEDs attract the least.

Researchers finally deduced that a warm yellow-orange LED bulb was best to light your evenings on the porch.
