Here's the underside of the fixture. I fabricated a circular plate that screws in to cover up the inside of the head. That way wasps a sh!t stay out (though I'm sure they'll still find their way in) and it helps to redirect the light downward. Said plate is painted to match the white reflector.

the lamp is a soft white 60W. This fixture is optimized for clear A19 or A21 lamps. I only used the SW 60W lamp because I didn't have a clear lamp to show this with. I've since bought a few 150W clear Sylvania lamps to use with this and the crescent moon light.

Don't worry. They'll still find their way in.

I don't have wasp problems in nema heads of my arms oddly. The wasps seem to nest on the underside of the wood deck handles. Before we finalized, I killed a colony by spraying with poison to weaken and kill them, then a power jet of water to knock the clusters of dazed insects down!😈

Paper wasps are a huge problem here. They get into and cavity protected from the weather. And street lights are among their favorite places to nest lol. On those hot summer days though, the sun heats up the casting (on darker colored lights anyway, not necessarily typical light gray-painted street lights) so the bees would probably find it was too hot. When I removed the boxy OV-15 for the crescent moon to go up, I could barely touch the OV-15 since it was so freakin hot from being out in the sun all day. I had to hold the light by the latch and ballast bracket when I took it off the arm since the casting was simply too hot to touch.

lol, when I was hiding mine off it was at least 100 degrees on the deck. I got the fixture disassembled and laid out, and went inside for 5 mins to grab a drink. When I went back out the fixture was like 130 degrees!

Ouch! Yeah the silver fixtures get really hot. And once the gray cobraheads start loosing the paint on top they start getting really hot too, though I don't think paint wear has anything to do with heat though since I've seen 50W HPS GE M-250R2s that look totally bare and have lost nearly all their paint and there are some 250W HPS M-250R2s that are from the 90s and still have most of their paint. The 1980s was a bad decade for GE fixtures as far as the powdercoating was concerned. Almost all 80s GE fixtures still in service today have no paint left. Yet 1970s GEs still in service are doing OK and 90s GEs are doing OK around here, though certain lights here and there loose their paint. GE is known for that though. Cooper and AEL fixtures tend to hold their paint a little better though AELs are known to have the powdercoating come off in huge sheets, which looks very ugly. The reason for that is because the metal gets contaminated after they give it the chemical bath for the powder coating to stick to it. They must not be very careful with their powdercoating process. In recent years though GE fixtures have gotten much better though. The paint no longer seems to melt off anymore. It tends to remain for quite awhile now.

Lol. In my gramps small town there are rounded top LM NEMA heads with open bottom tapered lenses in service! Some are 100 watt MV, others 175. There're also post top acorns with BT shaped halides in them, lighting the 1830 era buildings. The Cobras lighting the main roads are almost bare from weathering!

Yeah my McGraw NEMA is rounded top and 175W. I needs a bucket for it though. Haven't bought that GE one. Not yet anyway...
