How to get pesky insects to buzz off

By | December 11, 2019

Australia’s favourite time of year is upon us; warm weather, quick dips in the pool, and long balmy evenings spent enjoying the outdoors with family and friends. However, with every summer social event comes one very uninvited guest – the pesky mosquito.

Household favourites, Thermacell, Waxworks, Bite Shield and Gecko have a range of products that guarantee comfort and style this summer.

The Insect Buster

The Thermacell Mini Halo Repeller is a lifesaver for lovers of the outdoors. This high-tech insect repeller provides a 21-metre square zone of protection from irritating mosquitoes, keeping you safe this summer.

No messy sprays, oily lotions, or open flames. Simply turn it on and consider the mosquitoes gone. The compact device is available in blue or green and perfect for any entertaining area.

Meanwhile, if you’re looking to repel mosquitoes anywhere from the backyard to the great outdoors, check out the Thermacell Portable Mosquito Repeller.

Outdoor Style That Protects

Inspired by natural repellent solutions for protection against mosquitoes, Waxworks products are free from harsh chemicals.

Stylish and functional, the Waxworks Citronella Tribal Drum Candle is sophisticated, on trend, and brings a touch of the exotic into your home with its tribal print. The candle contains citronella essential oil, creating a natural barrier that protects you from mosquitoes.

With up to 24 hours of burn time and a wind resistant wick, there’s no reason to cut short an enjoyable summer evening.

Protection That Follows

The Bite Shield wristband is a 100 per cent natural personal insect repellent, ideal for active adults and children.

Worn around the wrist or ankle, the band repels mosquitoes and flying biting insects for up to 48 hours. The Bite Shield wristbands are non-toxic, DEET free and waterproof, and guaranteed to stay effective throughout all outdoor activities, including camping, fishing, picnics, sports and barbecues.

Zap Away Intruders

The Gecko 25W Lantern Insect Zapper keeps outdoor entertaining pest-free.

Its functional design allows the lantern to be hung up or placed on flat surfaces, providing additional ambience when entertaining, and its 23-metre radius of slight and heat attracts and zaps mosquitoes and other pests.

With a self-cleaning vertical grid and catcher tray, the only mess you will need to worry about is the leftovers of a great night outdoors with your nearest and dearest.

All products are available at Bunnings Warehouse.
