Do bugs need street lights to survive or do they mess them up?

    No, bugs do not need street lights to survive. Many insects simply become confused by street or porch lights. Moths, for instance, use the light from the moon as a means of travel. When they see a street light, they instinctively fly around it, keeping the light on one side of their body (thinking it’s the moon) for navigational purposes. Other bugs may use the light as a means of an emergency escape route. They’ll fly to the light in order to escape danger, as opposed to flying towards darkness. Bugs do, however, cause street lights to be cleaned more frequently.
