Thermacell Mosquito Repellent

It’s safe to say that the machete, while imposing, is not entirely effective against mosquitoes, no matter how hard you swing it. Save the blades for the steak and check out the Thermacell MR-BJE.

This cordless, pocket-sized, mosquito-repelling device creates a 15-foot by 15-foot zone of protection against the little bloodsuckers, as well as flies and other winged creatures you didn’t invite to the cookout. It does so by sending out a vaporized repellent into the air, one that’s designed to smell like raw earth to mask your delicious human scent from the bugs, and within 20 minutes you should have roughly 225 square feet of insect-free real estate on your hands.
