Insects Attracted to IR Illuminators ??

Hi,

I installed a Vivotek IP8332 to keep an eye on my cars back in February. It's just getting warm enough here in NJ for the insects to come out of their winter hibernation and I had at least 20 false motion events last night due to bugs buzzing around my camera! Are insects attracted to the IR Illuminators on our IP cams the same way they are attracted to incandescent light bulbs?? Night mode used to be when I got the least amount of false events, now it's almost as bad as the swaying tree shadows and passing clouds I get in the day time.
What has your experience been?

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
