Annoying bugs can buzz right off.

Whether you’re camping, beaching, or just enjoying an evening in your own backyard, the bugs somehow find a way to annoy you and ruin your outdoor experience.

Thermacell protects your tasty blood from mosquitoes, black flies, and other annoying insects that bite. It’s a portable outdoor repeller device that provides 225 square feet of coverage, so that you don’t have to douse yourself in smelly, greasy bug spray.


The cordless, pocket-sized device fends off bugs using an odorless repellent mat which contains allethrin. When turned on, a butane cartridge heats up the mat, but there is no open flame. A single mat lasts up to 12 hours. 

Reviewers on Amazon have given the device a high rating, claiming it won’t remove bugs entirely, however it is much more effective than candles or spray.

You can grab one on Amazon for as low as $18.89 (or $19.97, if pink camo isn’t your style), saving yourself a couple of dollars while supplies last.
