dusk to dawn light

I recently changed the bulb on my light & it was working fine, now it is staying on in the daylight. What could I do?

Most lights like that have a way to permanently turn them on by a switch flip sequence. Try turning it off (and leave off for a little bit) and then turn it back on. If that doesn't work try turning it on and off twice rapidly. If you have the original instructions I'm sure it will tell you the sequence this light requires.

Check the window in front of the photocell; we have small wasps that pack mud in that little opening about once a year or so.
