No pest is better at ruining your time outside than the mosquito. Whether in your yard grilling up burgers or deep into a big backpacking trip – they’re always there, buzzing around your ears and biting at your legs. Thankfully, there is a solution for the summer’s most annoying problem. Introducing the Thermacell Backpacker Mosquito Repeller

The way this works is surprisingly simple. Users just need to take the Thermacell unit, screw it down onto a gas canister, and slide in a proprietary repellent mat. Just like that, it is good to go for up to 90 hours on a 4-ounce canister. Using less gas than it takes to boil a pot of water, this setup will essentially create a 15 by 15 foot wide forcefield that keeps mosquitos out. Aside from the fuel efficiency, the best part about this gadget is its portability. The Backpacker Mosquito Repeller can easily be thrown in your backpack and taken far and wide. Summer just got a whole lot less buggy.
