Well, it’s summer, so of course we want to get rid of all the bugs that come with it. First and foremost, mosquitoes. Those little bloodsuckers don’t just sting you and leave, they make you itch for days. While eliminating them all does sound enticing, you mainly just want them to go away, and bug spray doesn’t always work.
The Portable Tabletop Mosquito Repeller gives you a shield against most unruly bugs that would normally be a nuiscance. Instead of being chemically-based, it uses essential oils that will have your porch or patio smelling of geranium, peppermint, and lemongrass. You’ll get about a fifteen square foot area of protection over 18 hours on one cartridge. This runs on two AA batteries which gives you about 8 hours of run time, and will cost you $30. If you want replacement cartridges, which are pretty necessary for this to be useful, it’ll be another $10 for an additional two. Your best bet would be to buy the essential oils, get some tea candles, put it on an oil burner, and take care of business for much cheaper.
