Flying insects trigger the Motion detection during the night

It would be very helpful to add functionality to the motion detection to prevent it from being triggered by flying insects. This seems to only happen in the evening. I have seen several posts about this in the community but not on the feature request board. Is there anything that the Ring Developers could do to allow the motion detection code to recognize that flying bugs should not set off a motion alert?

In the meantime, I might suggest using certain types of yellow outdoor lights. I’ve found they reduce the number of insects compared to when I used regular white lights on my porch near my Ring doorbell.
