We have one, but since we usually always put up the screenhouse, the porch light rarely gets uses. It does not have a bug light.
We do have a camping chandelier that I made from a Sears trouble light and a replacement metal part from Menards, with fake crystal trim. I took the original metal protection cage and replaced it with one that is shaped like a funnel. Then I added the fake crystal trip to the bars and put in a bug light. On the 2 week trip, we never put up the screenhouse surrounding LED lights. We just used this (with the porch light turned off).

>It does not have a bug light.

Ours came with a clear lense, but I found an amber one at an RV parts store. I think I also found some amber bulbs at Camping World, once upon a time, but the amber lense is a better solution.

I use mine often in winter, as the Casita is parked next to the dog's pen; it's helpful for seeing to fasten the gate, etc. - plus, I can gauge the battery strength that way, while I'm at it.

I must admit we don't use the light all that much when we're camping BUT I'm glad it's there for when we do need it (picking up stuff from around and about, under the awning, especially food or anything the critters might like to paw through overnight - such as the bag of recycle-cans).
