Electronic Mosquito killer/repeller?
« on: April 22, 2021, 07:18:25 AM »
Looking for something to put out in the backyard as we spend a lot of evenings in the summer doing BBQ's and just hanging out.
Citronella candles don't quite do it so looking to see if you guys have had any success with any of the therma cell or  dynatrap type ones?

adam which model do you have?
looking at this one, 20 ft radius, should do good enough for the table during bbq's until the fires going.

I have a few of the older versions of this. The mosquitos are horrible in the late spring at our property. I just set the thermacell on the picnic table and it keeps them knocked down pretty well

Got 5 or 6 Thermacell lanterns for camping with the movable feast I drag around... Hate paying for the butane (hope to shortcut that someday by refilling) but they're sure worth their weight in gold!
