My family enjoys being together outdoors. Between the parties we have with family and friends to the camping trips we take, we are ALWAYS outside. Unfortunately, I am a magnet for bugs. It seems they want my blood more than my body does. I do not care how much bug spray I spray on myself, they find a tiny patch unprotected and attack! It is a miserable thing to be desired so much–well, by bugs that is! SO when we were given the opportunity to check out the Thermacell Patio Shield for bug protection, I knew I had to check it out.
Overall, we would give this lantern a 10! It was easy to assemble, and went to work almost immediately. For someone that knows firsthand what it is like to be eaten alive by bugs, I was pleasantly surprised that I had no issues. I was able to stay outdoors with my family for the duration of our party–which is something to boast about! It really did provide the protection it promotes as covering. With four adults outside enjoying the summer pool and weather, we were all able to experience the benefits.
I would defiantly recommend this to friends and family. If you have a backyard and enjoy being outdoors, this a great product to have. I esp love that it doubles not only as a bug repellent, but also as a lantern. Good Housekeeping recommends it as one of 8 insect repellents that work! Now that speaks volumes to me.
