Default Sealing Up Exterior Lights

Just added two new lights under my patio and they are filling up with bugs. Any way to seal the fixture up to prevent it. Thanks for any help.

Exterior light fixtures have weep holes to allow condensation to escape. These holes should not be sealed up. Other than that, you may want to consider sealing the remainder of openings with caulk/silicone.
