Bug Off!

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

Few things are more annoying when enjoying the outdoors than swatting away swarming mosquitoes, no-see-ums and black flies. One solution is to create a 15×15-foot mosquito-free bubble with one of several products from Thermacell. These repellants use heat-activated allethrin, a synthetic copy of the natural insecticide found in chrysanthemums. The Backpacker (right) attaches to a camping-fuel canister, and according to the company, fends off insects for up to 90 hours. The Scout Camp Lantern (left) and MR450 Repeller (center) provide the same protection using butane-lighter cartridges and mat refills that last up to 12 hours.
MSRP: $34.99/MR450 Repeller
$39.99/Backpacker and Scout
