Check out this new mosquito repellent that doubles as beautiful landscape lighting. Enjoy your yard without the worry of mosquito bites!
Many California homeowners have been taking advantage of the wonderful year-round weather in most areas by creating lavish outdoor living areas, many equipped with a full kitchen, dining area, fire pit, and more. But there is a least one caveat to living comfortably in the outdoors: bugs. Mosquitos in particular are an obstacle many outdoor entertainers battle, especially in the summer months. And with the added threat of the Zika virus, and other diseases mosquitos can carry, homeowners are rightfully wary of the pests. A recent study commissioned by manufacturer NuTone found that Americans spend about 10 hours a week in their yards during the summertime, but they would spend up to 18 hours per week if it weren’t for the mosquitoes.
Topical bug creams can contain hazardous chemicals and citronella candles may be inconvenient or ineffective. Nutone has introduced backyard lighting and mosquito repellant system, called Haven. Haven eliminates the need for sprays, traps, candles or torches and provides season-long mosquito protection.
Haven fixtures are available in two options:
(1) the light and repellent fixture features LED landscape lighting
(2) the standard repellent fixture that provides the same mosquito protection for areas where lighting is not needed or is already in place.
The system’s patented mosquito repellent technology is powered by low-voltage electricity that heats a mosquito repellent cartridge. The cartridge produces an odorless, invisible, and silent mosquito repellent vapor.
Each fixture repels mosquitoes within a 110-square-foot area, and four fixtures provide enough coverage for the average deck or patio. The firm claims its testing found that the system repels up to 92% of mosquitoes. In addition, an optional timer/control allows programming of two circuits (repellent and lighting) for automatic operation triggered by time of day or by solar sensor, furthering the system's ease of use. Black and bronze finishes and deck-mounting flanges allow homeowners to further customize the system to fit their own needs and unique aesthetics.
Spend as many hours as you want in your yard this summer without the threat of mosquito bites!
This is an interesting and convenient way to rid the outdoors of mosquitoes. I’ve used citronella mosquito patches on my child but it has so far proved ineffective. The sprays are ineffective too, besides being unhealthy for both humans and pets. Candles are fire hazards. Just wondering if this will be safe for my dogs who love to roam in the yard.
With it being a humid summer this year, these are perfect!! I am not a huge outdoorsy person, but I have children so we often are outside. We have been bitten up so many times! Hopefully these work! Thanks!
These mosquito repellents seem really convenient. I would definitely try them out. We have a lot of mosquitoes down here and we usually use the good old mosquito coils to get rid of them. But the downfall for the coils is that they emit harmful amount of smoke and not to mention the weird odor that surrounds them. Might as well go for these as they seem to be the better alternative.
This seems like a very good product, and I am just glad to know that these exist in forms that actually work. I have always hated those torch like lights that people get, and I have never thought they worked. Just a big scheme in my opinion, so I will have to see if these can do the trick.
Wow. That is one good quality product. Id like to buy one. Quality time outside, day and night, and health issues involving mosquito bites is no more. Plus its elegant design that suits any kind of patio. Excellent!
