Keep the Biting Bugs Away While Camping ~ Thermacell Mosquito Repellent Lanterns

Camping is one of my family's favorite summertime activities.  Along with the great outdoors comes BUGS!  Bugs are my least favorite aspect of camping... especially once the sun starts to set and those pesky mosquitoes come out to visit. 

We have tried just about everything to keep mosquitoes away from us while camping.  We've tried candles, bug spray and bracelets... some work for a little while and others don't work at all!  Last weekend we went camping and tried something new to keep the biting insects away.  We were excited to give the Thermacell Bristol lantern a try!

 

The first time we decided to give our new mosquito repellent lantern was at lunch.  The bees were taking over our picnic table and it was difficult to enjoy our lunch.  Would it work on bees?  We didn't know, but we were willing to give it a try!  Much to our surprise, within moments of turning the lantern on, the bees were gone and we were able to enjoy our hot dogs and potato salad without having to swat bees!

That night, as the sun went down and the mosquitoes came out, we turned our lantern on again.  Bye-bye mosquitoes!

This lantern is light and compact, making it deal for use while you are gardening, observing outdoor sporting events, camping, or hanging around the backyard!
