Avigilon Or Axis Integrated IR Cameras - Have You Had Problems With Bugs?

Over the years, we have talked about incidents where bugs or spiders caused issues with integrated IR cameras.

However, as our integrated IR camera stats show, it's clearly not a problem for the majority of users.

On the other hand, it's not clear what factors cause this - is it certain form factors, or certain designs, or certain IR LEDs, or certain manufacturers or certain environments, etc.

So I am curious, for those of you using higher end integrated IR cameras (like the newer ones from Axis or Avigilon), have you seen problems?

I'd appreciate both yes and no responses so we can get a feel for issues (or lack thereof).
