    Ok dudes, do you guys do anyhting when you install the light fixtures to prevent the ants, other crawling critters from getting into the fixture? It makes a pleasent surprise when you change the bulbs..

    I like to spray some Stutton JS-685 into the fixture. This is a spray powder ant killer that's used to spray on contacts. It is non conductive up to 15,320 volts and will last for 7 months. You can get it at your local electrical supply house.
