Now that warm weather is here, we can finally enjoy time outdoors – that is until the swarms of mosquitoes come around and eat us alive. I’m so surprised at how quickly the mosquitoes have come out this Spring! When given the chance to review the Thermacell Lantern for this post, I was happy to check out a mosquito solution that is odorless and doesn’t require physical application.
Thermacell Mosquito Repelling Lantern Review
The Thermacell Mosquito Repelling Lantern offers an impressive 15 x 15 ft area of mosquito-free protection. It is perfect for sitting outside on the patio, by the playground, camping, and even during a night hike.
We recently went on an overnight scouting campout and I brought along the Thermacell Mosquito Repelling Lantern. I kept it near our kids while they played outside, chatted around the bonfire, and on our evening hikes. I didn’t hear one person complain about mosquitoes! I was super, super impressed. During our night hike, the kids took turns carrying the lantern for light and protection from mosquitoes. It shines off really nice lighting when on High.
We camped in cabins – thankfully! – but needed a night light in the bathroom. I kept the Thermacell Mosquito Repelling Lantern on in the bathroom on Low for sleepy campers to see in the night. The batteries lasted the entire night! I’ve used the lantern several times since and the batteries are still going!
You might want to know how the Thermacell Mosquito Repelling Lantern works. There are two settings, one for the light and one for the mosquito and bug repelling. Simply turn on the single butane warmer with the flip of a switch.
