Want to enjoy the outdoors with your family uninterrupted? Thermacell Trailblazer and Scout Camp Lanterns provide hours of bright light and proven protection from mosquitoes, black flies, and other biting insects. 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.
The product comes with a LED Lantern, 3 Repellent Mats (each lasts 4 hours) and 1 Butane Cartridge (lasts 12 hours) It was very easy to insert a repellent mats and the butane cartridge. The hardest part was finding 3 AAA Batteries. In my house the kids take them for their stuff before I can get them out of the shopping bag.
Mosquitos love my granddaughter so it's important for my family that if we go to the park, camping or even in our own backyard we have protection for her. Nothing is worse than having hundreds of bug bites and the constant itch. We decided to try and see if it really worked I thought we would have dessert on the picnic table in the backyard. I took the Thermacell Patio Shield Mosquito Protection Lantern out to the picnic table while we were eating dinner. The directions said to allow 10-30 minutes depending on the size of the area for the product to take effect
After dinner, we all headed out to the picnic table with our plates of Lemon Bundt Cake. The lantern gave off a nice amount of light. I wouldn't recommend reading a book with it but it was enough to see what we were eating. I really liked that it did not contain an open flame and there was no scent. I really expected a scent but it was scent free! I am happy to report we all were bite free.
