It is better to place lights far away from your front door, using a pole light if possible. If you must have porch lights next to your front door, it’s best to take a look at your bulbs. Mercury vapor lamps are a high intensity discharge lamps. Replacing these white standard mercury vapor lights with warmer high-pressure sodium vapor or halogen lights will reduce flying insects around doors and windows. These bulbs have a pink, yellow or orange tint and will be least attractive to the flying insects.
