OK, I hadn't thought about all that. I am retired and home all day. I go in and out a lot. Also have a cat that goes in and out a lot. My wife goes out some. Each time any of us go out the light comes on. My light bulbs only last a short time. I was thinking it was because go on and off so many times. Any other way to disable that light with a switch?

I am a little confused however, it sounds like you use the three way switch to open and close the garage door. The short life of the light could be caused by vibration from the garage door opener - standard incandescent bulbs are very sensitive to vibration. A rough service bulb would last much longer in this application, if vibration is the problem. CFL and LED bulbs would also be an option. CFL and LEB bulbs use so little power it does not manner if they burn a few extra hours per day - you would likely never recover the cost for an electrican to separate the socket from the outlet.
As to disabling the light, the hardware stores used to sell an adaptor with a pull chain switch. You unscrew the bulb from the light socket, screw it into the adaptor then screw the adaptor/with bulb into the light socket. To disable the light you switch it off with the pull chain switch.

No, don't use 3 way switch to open and close door. I mentioned that just to show there was a light right next to the plug. Light and plug aren't connected in any way. Short bulb life not because of vibration. I hardly ever close the garage door. Mostly only when going to be gone overnight. Told wife we shouldn't close it then because that was a sign we are gone LOL. The adapter with a pull string sounds good. I know exactly what you speak of, just didn't think about that.
