A Lantern That Fends Off Pesky Mosquitoes

MarinaHanes ~ 25 August 2010

Enjoying the outdoors doesn’t come without its downsides, one of them being pesky mosquitoes. Of course, having these insects buzzing in your ear and biting your skin can drive you crazy, but you also have to worry about the potential diseases they might be carrying. Keeping you and your family safe doesn’t require that you retreat to the indoors, it just means you need a mosquito repellent lanter.

The ThermaCELL Outdoor Lantern operates on a butane cartridge, which heats a mat that contains a synthetic insecticide called allethrin. Each allethrin mat provides up to four hours of protection, and mosquitoes will be deterred from coming within the 15 x 15′ radius. The butane cartridges last up to 12 hours.

In addition to warding off mosquitoes, the lantern provides illumination via its eight LED lights that have two settings. Although this product has a rugged structure and grip handle, you can still use this light on a patio or deck.
