ThermaCELL has introduced a new outdoor lantern that provides twice as much light as previous models and is rated as 98 percent effective in repelling mosquitoes and black flies. The lantern weighs less than a pound and has an easy-grip handle to make it easy to carry or hang.
The lantern operates on a butane cartridge that heats a mat releasing allethrin, a synthetic copy of a natural insecticide in pyrethrum flowers. Each mat provides up to four hours of protection in an area that is 15 feet by 15 feet. The butane cartridge will last for up to 12 hours. The LED lights are powered by four AA batteries.
The outdoor lantern has a suggested price of $29.99. For information, visit thermacell.com.
