Bedford, Mass. (July 15, 2015) – In preparation for West Nile season, Thermacell® Repellents Inc., a leading manufacturer of area mosquito repellent products, can help people enjoy the outdoors without the intrusion of mosquitos and other biting pests by providing protection from mosquito borne illnesses. A proven technology that provides users with a 15′ x 15′ zone of protection from biting bugs, Thermacell Repellents come in many forms including lanterns, backyard torches and portable appliances to help protect you wherever your summer adventures take you.
Dr. Jamison Satterfield, a pediatrician for over 25 years, and a proponent of Thermacell protection states, “Protecting your family not only from the nuisance of mosquitos but from the threat of insect-borne diseases is as essential to being outdoors this summer as sunscreen and proper hydration.” Satterfield continues, “Thermacell products help protect users without having to apply repellent directly to the skin making them an attractive alternative to traditional sprays and lotions.”
DEET can be sticky and smelly but Thermacell’s non-topical repellent technology creates a patented zone of protection where the repellent is dispersed into the air. The repellent is virtually odorless and silent, making protection from insects undetectable and unobtrusive at home, at the campsite or wherever your outdoor adventures might take you this summer.
“Our mission is to liberate people who love the outdoors from the harmful effects of mosquitoes whether you’re camping, RV’ing, fishing, hunting, or just enjoying the great outdoors in your own backyard,” said Allegra Lowitt, Thermacell chief marketing officer. “Regional bug forecasts vary but one thing you can count on is that these annoying uninvited guests will show up, and our products, from our new Camp Lantern to our tried and true repellers and torches, will keep mosquitos, black flies and no-see-ums at bay so you can relax outdoors.”
