If you're anything like me, you spend most of the summer outdoors. What's better than spending time with your family and friends by the pool and having a barbecue?
Nothing, in my opinion. Except, it never fails. Mosquitoes, flies and other bugs spoil the fun.
You've had those nights where you do nothing but swat mosquitoes. It's irritating. But, these days, it can be potentially dangerous with mosquitoes spreading the Zika virus and West Nile virus.
Of course, getting rid of mosquitoes up to now meant you had to spray yourself and your family with toxic chemicals. It smells terrible and feels sticky. Worse, those sprays don't do a very good job keeping the bugs away.
Well, I've got a low-cost tech solution that I think you'll love. It's the Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Outdoor and Camping Repeller Device. You can find it on Amazon and at stores like Walmart for less than $20.
It's pocket-sized and cordless, so you can take it wherever you go. It keeps mosquitoes away in a 15-foot by 15-foot area. The secret's in that blue mat above. It uses the ingredient allethrin, which is a synthetic version the botanical chemical pyrethrum that's found in chrysanthemum flowers.
