Goodbye to those annoying mosquitoes

I was so excited to receive the Thermacell Mosquito Repellent. My family and I enjoy sitting outside, hanging out at the park in the evenings, camping and backyard bbq's. I've always been a magnet to mosquitoes. I used to get attacked by mosquitoes while standing on my balcony. I've used citronella candles, mosquito spray and OFF! sprays. I was anxious to see if Thermacell would help me (and my family) enjoy our days and evenings without being eaten alive. 
 "The best protection is the least intrusive — not something you spray or slather on, but something virtually invisible, odor-free and proven effective." - Thermacell

When I received it, it was the day after I was at the park in the evening with some friends and got bit over and over my mosquitoes and other bugs. A week before that I was in New Orleans on a family trip and was bit all over my legs and foot..on our first day there!  I knew I wanted to try this gadget out! I received the Bristol Lantern. We took it outdoors to test it out. The claims of this lantern are: 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
  • Includes: Thermacell Bristol Lantern, 3 Original repeller mats, 1 butane cartridge
  • Requires 3 AAA-batteries (not included)
I like the fact that there is no smell like the citronella candles. It was easy to set up. I'm not sure if it 100% worked, or if there weren't enough mosquitoes out that night but I did not get any new bug bites, nor did my boys. So I'd say it's a thumbs up! I will definitely purchase a few more! It will be great for camping or when a larger is needed. If you hate those pesky mosquitoes.....get your Thermacell NOW!
