There's a lot to love about summer: al fresco dinners on the back porch, sunlight that goes on for hours, beach adventures, and so much more. But when unexpected guests show up to your summertime festivities, it can put a real damper on things. And no, I'm not talking about your nosy neighbors—I'm talking about mosquitos! One bite can turn your beachside picnic into an itchy disaster. And while repellant sprays and citronella candles might help, wouldn't it be nice if there was a more stylish way to get rid of mosquitos? Well now, there is.
TIKI brand recently announced the launch of its BiteFighter™ LED String Lights, aka a sophisticated outdoor lighting option that will illuminate your backyard while also ridding it of mosquitos. As the brand's motto goes, "surround yourself with ambiance, not mosquitos."
Each 36-foot strand of light includes 12 warm-toned 2200K shatter-resistant LED bulbs and 3 repellent pods that provide up to a whole season of mosquito protection. That adds up to about 200 hours, according to the brand.
TIKI recommends hanging the lights no higher than 10-feet off the grand for maximum protection. The company also suggests turning them on for 15 minutes before use to establish protection. And if no mosquitos are bothering you, you have the option to turn off the repellant while still using the lights. Are you convinced yet?
