After a soggy spring, those pesky mosquitoes are back with a vengeance. My husband is one of the lucky people who never get bitten, but I’ve always been the opposite. I can be covered in itchy bites in no time whatsoever if I don’t dress myself from head to toe. But who wants to cover up on a hot summer night? With ThermaCELL, you don’t have to.
ThermaCELL isn’t like most mosquito repellent devices. There’s no open flame, and ThermaCELL doesn’t contain DEET or any other harsh chemicals. Instead, it uses butane cartridges and a repellent called allethrin, which is a synthetic form of a natural insecticide found in chrysanthemums. The combination repels up to 98 percent of mosquitoes, black flies, no-see-ums and sand flies. The technology has been tested and approved by the EPA and the U.S. Army, and it’s currently used in Iraq, Kuwait, and Afghanistan.
We’re offering two styles, a patio lantern, and a portable unit. Each covers a 15’ × 15’ area. The lantern doubles as a muted light, which is nice when you’re outdoors in the evening. The portable unit is designed to tag along when you’re working in the yard, taking a hike, fishing, or sitting by the campfire. There’s no easier way to create a DEET-free, odor-free, marvelously bug-free zone.
