Introducing Thermacell's Scout Camp Lantern for Spring 2016

Bedford, Mass. (Spring 2016) – Thermacell® Repellents Inc., a leading manufacturer of area mosquito repellent products, is introducing the new portable, lightweight Scout Camp Lantern that provides portable light and repels mosquitoes. With a rubberized base, 20 hours of light at its highest setting, and the ability to keep mosquitoes, black flies and no-see-ums at bay, this lantern makes camping more enjoyable at a great price.

Thermacell has the only line of camp lanterns that repel mosquitoes, making outdoor activities more enjoyable especially at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active.  Forming a 15ftx15ft zone of protection in just minutes, Thermacell uses a repellent that is a copy of the natural insecticide found in chrysanthemums so there is no strong odor and no open flame.

“The Thermacell Repellent Scout Lantern is a great addition to our product collection, providing a lightweight, cost-effective option that provides bright light and  great mosquito protection when camping,” said Allegra Lowitt, Thermacell chief marketing officer.  “Whether on-the-go or around the house, the Scout Lantern is a great option for outdoor enthusiasts who want a light-weight option.”  Additionally, the lantern will come with a 12-hr repellent mat to protect campers all day or all night.

Rather than using a spray repellent, Thermacell uses a non-topical technology to create a patented 15’ x 15’ zone of protection from mosquitoes and other biting insects that covers the average size campsite.  Dousing in 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 the campsite.  The lantern will be available at major retailers in the camping section and has a MSRP of $39.99.
