Bugs in my lights

I have a home in a very rural area with lots of bugs.

It doesn't take long at all for the bugs to find their way in my ceiling light fixtures and die and accumulate.

I saw online some LED ceiling light fixtures appear to be sealed.

Does anyone know if using these will work to keep the bugs out?

Or, if there is a better solution?

I have many fixtures, so I'd really rather not buy and replace all of them.

Here is a picture:


Thank you!

I think before replacing I'd remove the light fixture and get a can of spray foam and seal up the electrical box on the ceiling and any openings in the light fixture and see if that helps.

If the light uses incandescent bulbs.... you can't seal it as needs air to cool.
