Mosquitoes. Ugh I can’t stand them! I really think they see my children and I as yummy treats because we are always bit up like crazy! I have tried the sprays (they stink and are greasy), I have tried the repellant bracelets (either don’t work or fall off and get lost) and I have tried the clip ons (they aren’t terrible but for me still didn’t work great). What else is there to try I am always thinking? FINALLY, I heard about Thermacell and their mosquito protection products. I was excited to review one of their Lanterns for my back lanai and I was hoping (more like praying) that it would work for my family.
The Thermacell Mosquito Repeller Bristol Lantern effectively repels mosquitoes, black flies, and other biting insects by creating a 15 x 15-foot zone of protection for bug-free comfort. Its ambient light and decorative design perfectly adorn your deck or patio. Ideal for use while you are gardening, observing outdoor sporting events, and hanging around the backyard, Thermacell Lanterns have been evaluated by the EPA for safety and effectiveness.
Works with all Thermacell repellent mats and refills
Thermacell products are effective in warding off biting insects. The repellent creates a 15 x 15-foot zone of protection against mosquitoes, black flies and other flying insects. Thermacell products have been recognized by leading entomologists and outdoor writers as the solution to making outdoor activities enjoyable.
What I especially like about the Patio Shield Lantern is that it doesn’t have a flame. I don’t have to worry about the kids touching the flame, or it knocking over and causing a fire. It has no odor either which is great, to me the on going smell of citronella just makes me nauseous sometimes! I have a 7×15 Lanai and I had the lantern on when I was sitting outside and didn’t get bit at all by any mosquitoes. It lights up nice and bright for a small lantern.
This is definitely a great lantern to have handy when you are outside with your family. It has really worked for us, we have been outside every night with it for a week now and haven’t had any bites at all. I highly recommend this!
