Yes mosquitoes are indeed still attracted some to LED lights.

However I notice that after switching my porch lights to LED light bulbs from the old incandescent light bulbs that I get less mosquitoes coming towards the light.

So while mosquitoes are still attracted to the LED lights they are not attracted to the LED bulbs as much as they are to regular light bulbs.

Yellow light bulbs can help keep mosquitoes and other bugs away from your home as well or your patio.

If you're out on your patio during the day and mosquitoes are coming by you can also get a mosquito magnet that runs on propane to kill the mosquitoes or use an electric fan blowing on you to keep the mosquitoes away from you.

You can also use plants such as Citronella, Garlic, Peppermint etc to keep mosquitoes away from your home.

Also dump any stale water and get rid of debris that can cause mosquitoes.
