Thermacell Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller - Review and Giveaway


Summer is here! That means picnics, baseball games, barbecues and all the fun of enjoying the great outdoors with your family. There’s one thing no one likes about being outdoors, though: mosquitoes! They not only are a nuisance, but they also pose potentially serious health risks. 

West Nile, Triple E and now Lyme, vector borne illnesses are thriving and so are Thermacell repellent products, keeping mosquitoes and ticks at bay.  Revolutionary products by Thermacell Repellent Inc., are changing the landscape of the repellent industry by offering non-topical mosquito repellent options.  

EPA registered for proven efficacy and safety, all Thermacells keep you from being bugged when trying to enjoy the outdoors by providing portable, scent-free and powerful mosquito protection.  New this season the Patio Shield.  


The Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller is created to repel mosquitoes in a 15x15 foot zone of protection in minutes.  It is silent, virtually odor-free, and uses no open flame.  An instruction guide is included, and set-up is easy.  There are a few color options available, which I love because you can purchase one to match your outdoor decor.  I received the green Patio Shield.  

To use the mosquito repellent, you need to remove one of the mats from the wrapper and insert it under the grill.  Then you need to insert the butane cartridge into the device.  Once that's done, rotate the base until the line points to the ON position.  After a few seconds, rotate the base to the START position.  An orange light will glow if it's properly activated.  

There are three mats included with this kit, providing about four hours of repellency for each mat.  In other words, you're going to get about 12 hours of protection before you need to purchase another unit or purchase additional refill mats.  The mats will turn from pale blue to white when the mosquito repellent has been used up and needs to be replaced.  Takes the guesswork out of when to replace!

A small amount of vapor appears when the Patio Shield is in use.  This mosquito repeller seems to be helpful in keeping mosquitoes away. I don't find myself trying to slap them away near as often as I used to.  I can be outdoors and enjoy myself without worrying about getting eaten up by mosquitoes.  It's an added bonus that the Patio Shield has a slim, modern design.


Win It!

One person will win a Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller.

I love gardening during the summer months. I have several plants in my garden that need harvesting but we have been busy so it is close to dark by the time I can get out there to pick. The mosquitoes are very aggressive, it has been rainy, perfect for mosquitoes, not perfect for me.
