I am not quite sure why God allowed mosquitoes to follow Noah into the ark during the Great Flood – surely the world would have been a far better place to live in for the past thousands of years if there were not a single mosquito in sight? We also would not need to contend with the likes of malaria in mosquito-infested jungle areas. Having said that, since mosquitoes are still hanging around in this day and age, looking for opportunities to suck our blood whenever they can, what can humanity to in order to fight back against this scourge? Enter the $79.95 Natural Mosquito Repelling Lantern.
Assuming you love nothing better than to relax on your patio at the end of the day after a particularly gruelling session in the office, with a glass of wine in one hand and a platter of cheese on the table, that moment of pure solitude and bliss could be broken by the irritating buzz of a mosquito. With the Natural Mosquito Repelling Lantern, you need not fret – not only will you have some ambient lighting in the vicinity, it will also emit a natural, plant-based mist (floral scent of geraniol), which is an essential oil derived from lemongrass that is a natural mosquito repellent. Of course, this is good only for an area up to 300′ sq. A quartet of LED bulbs will generate a soft glow, while the included remote control lets you set the mist to spray every 5, 7 1/2, or 10 minutes. A single geraniol canister is able to last for up to 10 hours.
