When The Bugs Bite

September 2016 Product


What’s one thing that can ruin a good time relaxing on your boat or at a sandbar? Bugs. Luckily, the folks at ThermaCELL have you covered with their new mosquito-repelling Scout Camp lantern, shown to repel up to 98 percent of mosquitoes in U.S. Dept. of Defense Worldwide testing. This lantern creates an invisible 15-foot by 15-foot area free from biting insects for up to four hours per mat or 12 hours per refill kit. It operates on a single butane cartridge that heats a repellent mat releasing allethrin, a synthetic copy of a natural repellent found in chrysanthemums, and is safely evaluated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This lantern is cordless, small, and a great alternative to sprays and lotions. High energy butane lasts 30 times longer than the energy of alkaline batteries. ThermaCELL’s Scout Camp Lantern retails for $39.99.
