I had the same problem here in Florida and forget about working after dark.
The lights attracted every fying critter in the county. The garage is 2 car
and is the workshop and the door is always open. My solution was to install
a full width screen door with four panels on rollers. No more flying bugs
and no more bug spray on the skin. It was the best $400 I ever spent.
