Home of ThermaCELL Mosquito Repellent and ThermaCELL Heated Insoles. Take Back the Outdoors!
Whoo hooo! It’s summer time and super hot in Austin, Texas. My family and I are enjoying our first year in our new backyard and it’s been fantastic. Well, almost fantastic, if it weren’t for all the BUGS. While we appreciate spiders, bees, and ants (except for those pesky fire ants!), we are not big fans of mosquitoes. Although their name sounds very demure (translated from Spanish to ‘little fly’), the mosquito is one blood-sucking nuisances that can host a variety of nasty and harmful infections like malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, west Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus and other arboviruses! YUCK! In fact, the mosquito is actually considered the deadliest animal family in the world!
While we have been enjoying our backyard, so have these yucky mosquitoes and we wanted to put a stop to their fun. It’s one thing to put bug spray all over yourself and your children, and another to actually get some mosquito repeller tools to actually keep them away. We decided we needed something a little more drastic then DEET, so we checked out some repeller lanterns and settled on the Bristol Lantern from Thermacell and we’ve been very happy with it. There are lots of types of lanterns available, so I will list them below for your info.

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. It’s not only a mosquito repellent, it also gives off a wonderful ambient light and we like the decorative design for our back patio. You can use this lantern when you are gardening, watching outdoor sporting events, and (which we mainly use it for) hanging around the backyard! The Thermacell Lanterns have been evaluated by the EPA for safety and effectiveness, so another big plus. The Bristol lantern needs 3 AAA batteries that are not included, and comes with repeller mats and a butane cartridge that you will have to eventually replace. We have noticed a huge difference in the decline of the mosquitoes around us, especially our little ones, around the lantern and it’s nice to be able to enjoy the outdoors mosquito free!
