You guys already know I've been loving my patio this year. Even though it's been a steamy summer, it's been a little more bearable with the addition of two new products I was recently asked to review.
The first is a lantern insect zapper. Now, you know I'm all about form and not just function, so first off I appreciate its streamlined design.
According to the maker, the Stinger® Insect Zapper Lantern is a portable, cordless and rechargeable bug zapper. It is designed for both indoor and outdoor use and covers up to 625 sq. ft. – approximately the size of a 25x25 sq. ft deck or patio space. That's pretty much my entire patio.
Call me crazy but I sort of like the fact that I can hear the bugs getting zapped. Perhaps it's the fact that I know it's working. I think this is great for evenings out on the patio as the UV light seems to lure bugs in. And when it's not in use, it looks pretty nice too.
Again, what I like most about the mosquito lantern, other than the fact it repels mosquitoes, is its decorative design. It fits in perfectly in with my décor.
It's the perfect barrier between me and that fountain I love that seems to like to bread mosquitoes this time of year. It operates like a citronella fan and I can attest to the fact that this one really works. I sat outside for an hour and fifteen minutes without a single bite and, trust me, THIS does not happen.
You can find more info on both products HERE.
Don't let bugs stop you from enjoying your outdoor living space. I know I'm not. The heat? Well, that's another story.
Until next time...
