There are several thousand out to get me! They even show up in my front yard most nights! Mosquitoes are my enemy. They also love to feast on Graham. I have had this problem since I can remember. I fear that all my childhood memories of bug bites are now being relived through Graham (poor kid). I can literally walk out the door to grab something off the porch and come back in with about 5 bites on my legs. This is horrible considering that they carry the West Nile Virus and who knows what else! Some people claim that there is a scientific reason behind why mosquitoes like some people over others…I personally think it is because I am so sweet (I wish I could see my husband’s face when he reads that line)!
I’ve been seeing the OFF! PowerPad Outdoor Lamps advertised quite a bit lately and definitely wanted to try them out. We used ours a couple of nights ago while we were doing a little bit of light yard work near our deck. I have to say that I am completely impressed with this thing! We buy citronella candles every year and I still end up with several hundred (I really don’t think I’m exaggerating) mosquito bites! We were outside for about an hour working and I came inside with NO bites! That is amazing for me! The lamp works by lighting a candle that heat activates the PowerPad. The PowerPad is refillable.
Here are some features we LOVE about it:
- Covers an area 15 times further than a regular citronella candle
- Lasts up to 4 hours (just blow out the candle when you are through outside and it will keep if you store it properly)
- Repels from an average sized deck (15ftx15ft)
- Has an attractive look that could be used for outdoor parties
- Has the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval
- Simple to use and refill
- It WORKS!
The OFF! PowerPad Outdoor Lamp will run you about $10 depending on the store. I would highly recommend this to friends, family and foes of mosquitoes!
