Thermacell Mosquito Repellent
What’s the best way to repel mosquitoes? With all the products invading the market everyday, all claiming to be as effective as the other, it is hard to pinpoint which works wonders. And unless you give each one a try, you wouldn’t really know if one indeed works better than the other.
The Thermacell Mosquito Repellent has taken the market by storm. It eliminates the problems that other mosquito control products have. The Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Appliance boasts of an odorless way to repel 98% of the mosquito population in your property. It is a cordless appliance, making it very portable and convenient for camping, hunting and other outdoor activities. This product may not be inexpensive, but would you rather spend a good deal of your time outdoors swatting at the swarm of mosquitoes, all of which are hoping to take a bite out of you?
There are a lot of advantages in using the Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Appliance. One is, it gives 12-hour protection within a 225 square foot area. Another is, the portable Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Appliance also includes three repellent mats, each lasting up to twelve hours, and one butane cartridge. While the Thermacell Mosquito Repellents works best against mosquitoes, studies have proven it to be as effective in repelling black flies, no-see-ums, and phlebotomine sand flies. There hasn’t been any study done to check if it is effective in eliminating larger biting insects and house flies. And even if some people have observed its efficiency in getting rid of some non-biting insects, there are no real proofs to confirm these claims. However, the Thermacell Mosquito Repellent is not recommended for use against bees, wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets.
So how does the Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Appliance works? The mat, containing allethrin, is heated by the butane energy cartridge. Allethrin belongs to the synthetic version of the naturally occurring insecticide found in certain flowers, and is released into the air as soon as the mat is heated. The repellent-laden air keeps mosquitoes away from the protected area. The amount of allethrin in the air is not large enough to kill the mosquitoes but is just enough to repel them.
There are several types of Thermacell Mosquito Repellents. One interesting alternative to the Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Appliance is the Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Mood Lantern. This utilizes Colorfusion technology that keeps you mesmerized with its color display and successfully warding off mosquitoes at the same time. This is a great option as it adds beauty to any patio or deck.
Most mosquito control products make you come in contact with hazards like foul smell, electric current, and annoying sounds. The Thermacell Mosquito Repellent drives mosquitoes away odorlessly, safely and most conveniently.
