When you're spending time outdoors during the summer, it's almost inevitable that bugs will invade your area. To help in getting rid of mosquitos, ThermaCELL provides repellents that increase your restfulness of the outdoors.
One decorative way of keeping mosquitos at bay is with the Patio Lantern. It works by dispensing a small amount of repellent into the air over a long period of time. It is powered by a butane cartridge which provides the heat necessary to operate the device. The heat is directed to a metal grill that is saturated with Allethrin, a copy of a naturally occuring insecticide found in chrysanthemum flowers. The heat generated by the butane cartridge vaporizes the repellent, creating a mosquito-free zone in minutes.
*Repels up to 98% of mosquitoes. Also repels black flies and no-see-ums.
*Provides a 15 x 15 ft Mosquito Free Zone, the size of an average deck or patio.
*Dual use product: repellent and light can be used together or separately.
*Silent, portable, and odor free.
*Easy to use: no open flame; no messy wax.
*Effective alternative to smelly lotions and sprays which must be applied to the skin.
*ThermaCELL technology has been tested and approved by the U.S. Army. Currently used in Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan.
*Perfect for backyards, decks, picnics, barbeques, camping, and outdoor parties.
This patio lantern seems to be helpful in keeping mosquitos away. I don't find myself trying to slap them, or any other bugs, away near as often as I used to. I have a small shepherd's hook that I hang it from when in use and the light is handy to have on at night. My only complaint is that I have to turn it on and wait ten to thirty minutes before it takes full effect. Butane cartridge and repellent mat refills are available for purchase so you don't have to go out and buy a whole new Patio Lantern or Appliance set.
