On June 4, ksl.com had a story about the large number of Miller moths, which have invaded Utah this year due to the unseasonably mild winter. Fortunately, now in 2014 a solution is available, which is to replace incandescent and CFL (compact fluorescent) porch and entryway light bulbs with the new soft-white LED bulbs. In addition to being more energy-efficient, the new LED bulbs put off less heat, so they attract far fewer moths, mosquitoes and other insects.
In certain situations incandescent bulbs are superior — especially when needed in conjunction with dimmer switches. The fact that incandescent bulbs put off a little bit of heat can be a blessing in certain situations where a little warmth may be required.
