As technology improves so too does the arms race gather momentum and result in more and more powerful instruments of destruction.
Fortunately, mosquitos are lagging behind when it comes to technological advancement which allows us to ‘definitely win’ the war against them. The Thermacell Repellant Camp Lantern is a new, more high-tech way to kill those bugs that works using a substance called ‘allethrin’. This is a synthetic compound that is also used by the chrysanthemum flower and which acts as a natural repellant.
The lantern is also useful for seeing (as with most lanterns) and uses a butane light which also heats and releases the allethrin. Take that mosquitos!
