Hmm, are they light orange, could stick a light over top of the bucket see if you can see kind of through the bucket. Probably wouldn't hurt to light proof it anyways, just grab some black/white poly it's cheap like less then a dollar a foot or about a dollar and just wrap them in that.

Oh yeah black trash bags would work too lol :smoking::D

black paint on the outside also works wonders. :)
