The Mosquito is Manitoba’s Provincial Bird! ThermaCELL Is Here To Help ~ #Giveaway {CAN}

We live in Manitoba and with our -30 winters we also get +30 summers with mosquitoes.  Not just small bugs that kind of annoy you.  These mosquitoes are often (jokingly) referred to as Manitoba’s provincial bird!  Yep they are that big and annoying.  Spending time in the back yard is only somewhat manageable and enjoyable if you are covered in bug spray.  But who loves feeling slimy and smelly all day?  Not me!

ThermaCELL mosquito repellent devices help you enjoy the outdoors without the fear of being attacked by mosquitoes, black flies and other bugs.

ThermaCELL keeps mosquitos

The TermaCELL Mosquito Area Repellent Patio Lantern is perfect for your deck, patio or back yard.  With this beautiful lantern on your deck, you and your friends can enjoy a beautiful evening outdoors without having to worry about being attacked by bugs.  The light from the lantern is powered by LEDs and sets a nice mood for your next get-together.  I love the fact that I can set the lantern on the edge of the deck that is closest to the play structure to help protect my kids since their bites always get super large and itchy!

ThermaCELL Lanterns

ThermaCELL also has a Camping Lantern that is perfect for you to take along on your next camping trip.  Both of these lanterns are portable, quiet and scent free!

ThermaCELL also has a smaller device that doesn’t have a light with it which is great for all your outdoor activities, especially hunting.

Mosquito Area Repellent

This super portable Mosquito Repellent Appliance is convenient to take along and provides protection for a 15 x 15-foot area.  With the holster that features a convenient clip, it is perfect for hikers, hunters and other outdoor enthusiasts who don’t want to be burdened with smelly lotions, sprays or oils.

ThermaCELL Portable

So how does it work?

ThermaCELL® Mosquito Repellent Lanterns and Appliances are powered by a single butane cartridge. Butane provides the cordless, portable heat that activates the patented devices.

The heat generated by the butane cartridge is directed to a metal grill that is part of the design of the Lantern or Appliance. A small mat, saturated with repellent, sits on top of the metal grill. Heat vaporizes the repellent, allowing it to rise into the air.

The repellent is a copy of a repellent that naturally occurs in chrysanthemum flowers. It repels mosquitoes, black flies, and no-see-ums, and will not harm humans or pets.

Within minutes after turning on the Lantern or Appliance, the repellent creates a 15 by 15-foot (225 square-foot) area of repellency, the size of an average deck, patio, or campsite. All ThermaCELL Mosquito Repellent products use the same refills, which contain both repellent mats and butane cartridges.

I don’t know about you, but I would MUCH rather sit outside on my deck on a beautiful summer evening, un-slimy and enjoying the evening than spraying myself full of gross, oily spray.
