Can we buy a Yellow replacement bulb for the outside annexe light..??
The missus swears that the yellow bulb on our back verandah doesn't attract the moths/insects and wants one for outside the van...
We have a Jayco Discovery and I presume it would be a halogen bulb...
Thanks if you can help

Yes yes yes, missus wins the prize of the month

Yellow lights banish flying insects at nighttime

Old farm remedy, whilst out on verandah at night having your meal, put a light, brighter the better, far down the verandah on stool, eat your meal under yellow light, works every time

Yes - that's what she does...
Floody down the end of the verandah - yellow bulb at BBQ area...
It DOES work...
Looks like the Battle of Britain down at the Floody end...
But can we buy a yellow bulb that fits into the van annexe light..??

As you are pointing out bugs like the white light more but they will still go to a yellow light if that is the only one that is around. They work best in conjunction with a white light or even better a black light. Cheers marn

Hi Jedo, I changed ours over on Saturday. I took the globe out and took it to the Repco shop and the lady showed me the right one to buy. But take the old one in with you so they can see it. It really does help with the yellow light, no bugs.
Also we have changed all our downlights in the van to LED's and the little bugs dont like them as well. You can have your windows open and the bugs dont come through the fly screens

Hi Jedo Mirabella mini spiral 13W Pt no 0740 240v 0.135A made for the jobImage Could Not Be Found
I saw one only at the super iga one day and grabbed it - haven't seen since but ask they maybe able to order it. At 13 w you can happily run it off your battery without any worries the only thing is that these compact flouros are a bit fussy on the inverter, won't start without a good sine wave. Also on the van just swap your fitting for a plastic one from bunnings. I reckon as long as the bulb has a firm base and doesn't wobble to much or hit anything it should survive travels quite happily as there is no filament to break.
