The July 2006 issue of Good Housekeeping has a review of mosquito repellent options ranging from sprays and candles to tabletop repellents. The Thermacell Mosquito Repellent lantern was chosen as the #1 product.
Repellent Review isn’t surprised with the results. The US Army has used Thermacell units where tests showed up to 98% protection. You can read our review of the Thermacell Mosquito Repellent lantern here.) Our friend Warren gave a great review of the lantern and uses it in a fun way during early evening barbeques.
As an area mosquito repellent, (area mosquito repellents keep a zone, or designated area such as a patio, bug free) we’d have to agree with Good Housekeeping. The Thermacell lantern is a great mosquito repellent. Stay tuned. We’ll be giving a review of a competitor to the Thermacell lantern to see how it stacks up.
