Now that summer is here, most of us spend a lot of time outdoors whether it’s in the warm sunshine, or sitting under a porch or an awning while it’s raining.
Along with summer comes those pesky bugs, namely mosquitoes!!
I am one of those people who get’s picked on and bitten the most by those damn mosquitoes, I am unsure of why they love me so much, but they swarm around me no matter what! I have even been out at camp in the bush picking blueberries and those darn things have bitten through my track pants and t-shirt!
I was convinced that there would never be a cure-all, but thanks to the ThermaCELL Electronic Mosquito Area Repellent — the mosquitoes have diminished!!
Not only are mosquitoes bothersome, one must also worry about the dreaded West Nile Virus!
West Nile virus is a disease spread by mosquitoes.
The West Nile virus is a type of virus known as a flavivirus. Researchers believe West Nile virus is spread when a mosquito bites an infected bird and then bites a person.
Although many people are bitten by mosquitoes that carry West Nile virus, most do not know they’ve been exposed. Few people develop severe disease or even notice any symptoms at all.
Risk factors for developing a more severe form of West Nile virus include:
•Conditions that weaken the immune system, such as HIV, organ transplants, and recent chemotherapy
•Older or very young age
West Nile virus may also be spread through blood transfusions and organ transplants. It is possible for an infected mother to spread the virus to her child through breast milk.
Mild disease, generally called West Nile fever, may cause some or all of the following symptoms:
•Lack of appetite
•Swollen lymph nodes
These symptoms usually last for 3 — 6 days.
More severe forms of disease, which can be life threatening, may be called West Nile encephalitis or West Nile meningitis, depending on what part of the body is affected.
If you’re going to be outside you need a Thermacell Electronic Mosquito Area Repellent. All I can say is wow. This thing is amazing! I took it out on our first trip to the cottage this year and it’s been a really warm spring where the black flies were all over the place. I turned this thing on and within 5 minsutes there was not one fly in sight. UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!! I hate mosquito’s as well, and their were none in sight while this device was on! I’m really impressed, and so happy that I was sent one for review! My husband said that this was a God-send, and he told me that we need a few more for camp, as well as for when he goes on fishing and his yearly hunting trips! You can purchase these babies right at the ThermaCELL.com website, as well as at a lot of the big box stores such as Canadian Tire, Home Depot, Walmart, and even on Amazon.com!
I definitely give the ThermaCELL Electronic Mosquito Area Repellent device a huge thumbs up, and absolutely recommend that everyone own a handful of these, they are that phenomenal!
Their customer service skills as well as their delivery time were also beyond outstanding!!
