No. So what really works?
Have you ever wondered why your fun citronella tiki torches don’t seem to protect you from mosquitoes? You may have a half dozen or so lined up perfectly around your deck, patio, or recreational area. The festive ambience they create seems perfect for your summer evening.
But the truth is, those torches aren’t effective unless you stand directly next to the flame. To keep yourself and your family safe, you’ll need a more than a few tiki torches.
Personal protection for everyone is a good idea and should be your first line of defense. Our Mosquito Bands offer more than 700 hours of mosquito-repelling power without the potent smell of bug spray. Best of all, they are comfortable, adjustable, and all-natural.
In addition to or in place of tiki torches, try our Mosquito Incense Sticks. They are easier to set up than torches, and there’s no large open flame to worry about. The incense sticks release a pleasantly fragranced smoke that naturally repels mosquitoes. Be sure to place the sticks in a fire-resistant bowl in areas close to your hangout spot.
Our next level of protection, the Mosquito Zap Trap, is awesome at removing mosquitoes for good. Our electric Zap Trap uses an ultraviolet light to lure mosquitoes in and zap them. Tip: To avoid fried mosquitoes falling on your backyard feast, remember to place these traps away from food areas, ideally on the perimeter of your outdoor space. The bugs will be attracted back toward the light and away from your party.
Combining these methods makes a great, chemical-free defensive line against mosquitoes. With the right tools for the job, keeping your family safe from pesky bug bites this summer will be a breeze.
