Why this mosquito repellent is the best on the market?

Easy! Thermacell Mosquito Repellent creates a 15 foot diameter domed area that is free of mosquitos! It’s oderless and a DEET-free bug spray alternative. Quiet and effective.

As the temperatures start to rise and the days become longer, it’s time to get outside and enjoy having friends and family over for get-togethers, grilling and parties. But there’s one thing that many of us dread – the mosquitoes. These pesky insects can quickly ruin an otherwise pleasant evening outdoors, leaving us itching and scratching for days on end. Luckily, there’s a solution that can help keep these bugs at bay: Thermacell Mosquito Repellent.

How it Works

Thermacell Mosquito Repellent E-Series Rechargeable Repeller with 20 foot Mosquito Protection Zone how it worksThermacell Mosquito Repellent is a small, portable device that uses heat to create a 15 x 15 foot mosquito-free zone around you. It’s easy to use, simply insert the included fuel cartridge and repellent mat, turn it on, and within minutes, you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors without the annoyance of mosquitoes.

One of the benefits of Thermacell Rechargeable Mosquitp Repellent is that it’s highly effective. The device uses allethrin, a synthetic version of a natural mosquito repellent found in chrysanthemum flowers, to create a zone of protection around you. This means that not only will you be able to enjoy your time outdoors without mosquitoes, but you’ll also avoid the need to use sticky and unpleasant sprays and lotions.

Another benefit of the Thermacell Mosquito Repellent is that it’s highly portable. The device is small and lightweight, making it easy to take with you wherever you go. Whether you’re camping, hiking, or simply enjoying an evening on the patio, Thermacell Mosquito Repellent will provide you with the protection you need.

It’s Refillable

Once you’ve used up the included fuel cartridge and repellent mat, you can easily purchase replacement packs to keep your device running smoothly. This not only saves you money in the long run, but it’s also better for the environment, as you won’t need to continually dispose of single-use mosquito repellent products.

As someone who frequently spends time outdoors, I can attest to the effectiveness of Thermacell Mosquito Repellent. Whether I’m camping with friends, hiking in the mountains, or simply enjoying a meal on the patio, I always make sure to have my Thermacell with me. It’s easy to use, highly effective, and provides me with the peace of mind I need to enjoy my time outdoors without being constantly harassed by mosquitoes.

Overall, if you’re looking for a highly effective, portable, and refillable mosquito repellent solution, I highly recommend Thermacell Mosquito Repellent. With its ability to create a 15 x 15 foot mosquito-free zone around you, you can enjoy your time outdoors without worrying about being constantly bothered by mosquitoes. And with refill packs readily available, you can rest assured that you’ll be able to use your repellent for years to come. It’s rechargeable!

Get a leaf blower if leaves are leaving you bushed?

Get a leaf blower if leaves are leaving you bushed?

I don’t know about you, but raking leaves has to be my least favorite job. That’s why I got a leaf blower. We have live oaks on our place and there are many red oaks all around us, so it seems like we are always picking up leaves, acorns and those nasty tassels for months each year. I used to rake all that into piles and bag them up, but that’s too much work for an old guy like me. You can’t exactly mow the acorns away or you’ll get hundreds of those little trees sprouting up everywhere. (more…)
