Staying cooped up at home all day long is not healthy at all. In fact, you might want to choose to step out and enjoy the breeze from the outside once in a while, and soak in nature’s abundance so that your internal man can recharge. However, if you were to sit on the patio at dusk while enjoying your favorite cup of coffee, then you might also end up being a feast for mosquitoes. This can be avoided with the $59.95 300 Lumens Mosquito Repelling Lantern — which not only provides light, but also ensures that them blood sucking pests won’t be able to extract a drop of plasma from you.
The 300 Lumens Mosquito Repelling Lantern, as its name suggests, produces 300 lumens of light and uses d-cis/trans allethrin, which is a repellent field-tested by the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research. This repellent has been proven to be effective in tests conducted by eight leading entomologists to repel up to 96% of mosquitoes, as it relies on a 21/2″ x 11/2″ mat that is saturated with permethrin. Permethrin is a synthetic repellent that made from a naturally occurring insecticide found in chrysanthemum flowers, where a butane-fueled heater vaporizes the repellent so that you end up in a 225′ sq. safe zone that is unbearable for mosquitoes and other biting insects. There will be eight LEDs within the lantern that produces an efficient glow for up to 50 hours with a quartet of light settings; and it can be used with/without mosquito repellant. Definitely an improvement over other lanterns!
