Spending time outside is one of the most enjoyable aspects of the motorhome lifestyle, but constantly being assaulted by mosquitoes can send you inside in a hurry. The new Thermacell Halo is said to provide a 15-by-15-foot mosquito protection zone in just minutes. The Halo operates using up to four butane cartridges to disperse a nontopical repellent that the company claims is virtually odor-free, with no open flame to worry about. This repellent, allethrin, is a synthetic copy of a natural repellent normally found in chrysanthemum plants. The heat fueled by the butane cartridge is directed to a metal grill, upon which a small mat saturated with repellent is inserted. Heat disperses the repellent from the mat into the air, creating the 225-square-foot zone of protection. MSRP: $39.99. Refill cartridges and mats are available at a variety of home improvement and outdoor stores, and also at Wal-Mart.
