Please find a way to deal with insects in IR Mode

Wyze Cams are not intended for outdoor use. However, Wyze is developing an outdoor camera that will use passive infrared to detect motion and hence not be sensitive to insects. You can read about it here: Outdoor/Weatherproof Wyze Cam.

In the mean time, you might want to consider turning off the built-in IR emitters and placing a stand alone IR light a few feet away to move the bug-attracting IR away from the camera. There are many IR lights available online in the $20 range.
