Get Out and PLAY Event - Father's Day Outside
Recently our backyard has gotten pretty awesome. With the addition of the 12’ JumpSport Trampoline and our awesome new Kenmore gas grill from Sears, you can bet we’re going to be spending a good deal of our time outdoors all summer long.
While we are lucky and don’t have to worry about direct sun during playtime and grill time, the one thing we do have to worry about is bugs. Since we tend to spend a good deal of our evenings out there as the guys light up the grill and we all take turns jumping, I find myself worrying a lot about bugs and trying to find kid-safe solutions to keep us all safe.
Just in time for Father’s Day, I found the perfect solution that can keep us outdoors even after the daylight fades away. The Terminix ALLCLEAR Mosquito Mister Lantern with Naturals is the solution to spraying smelly chemicals all over us and allows me to protect a good portion of the deck/patio with just one press of a button.
The Terminix ALLCLEAR Mosquito Lantern covers about 300 square feet and repels 95% of biting mosquitoes, allowing you to have fun in outdoor spaces of all kinds without worry. Using a 100% all-natural lemongrass formula that is safe around kids, food and pets, you don’t have to worry about harming your family while you protect them.
Not only that, but it’s also incredibly attractive, too. With all these features, I bet you didn’t expect the lantern to look like this, did you?
With a faux antique bronze finish that blends with any decor, it certainly doesn’t look anything like what I expected of a mosquito lantern. I love that not only does it repel mosquitoes, it also has an optional soft glow light that can add a great ambiance to outdoor gatherings. While we haven't used the light yet, I do love that it's an option as it makes the lantern more adaptable down the road for dinner parties and more.
The Terminix AllClear lantern comes preassembled but you do have to insert the batteries and the included spray in order to start it working. There's also an optional hanger you can screw in as well as a wall mount that you can use to hang your lantern. As far as set up goes it was intuitive and easy to do in a matter of minutes if you had a last minute party, and right away I could see how awesome this was going to be in our backyard.
We’ve had our Terminix lantern hanging over our grill patio/play area for a few days now and it really doesn’t detract from the appearance of our yard at all, in fact, I think it looks quite nice. I was really happy to see that the Terminix Lantern actually matches our solar fence post caps, which was a nice surprise considering I hadn’t even thought about looks when I read all the benefits of the lantern.
It’s so nice to be able to protect everyone with just the touch of a button without having to chase the little ones down, make sure they are covered without getting any in their face, and keep them from accidentally rubbing their eyes or getting it in their mouths. But, even better than that is that you can turn it off when you don’t need it and you aren’t left smelling like bug spray until you shower again.
Not only is it so much better than having to spray ourselves every single day all summer long, it’s also so much more convenient with the included pocket-sized remote. The remote allows you to control the lantern from a distance based on how active the mosquitoes are, which is perfect for if you have the lantern hanging or if you don't want it right next to you covering you in spray but you still want to be able to turn it off and on, mute it, or up the spray as the mosquitoes come out.
Being that my husband has never met a gadget he didn’t love, I knew the Terminix ALLCLEAR Mosquito Lantern with remote was the perfect new grill accessory this Father’s Day. Although I’m really excited about using it all summer long in our backyard, I’m also excited about how easy the lantern is to transport and take with us when we take our show on the road.
At 11.5h x 7.75w x 7.75d, it's a bit larger than a normal lantern, but still very packable and portable for when we're going to be out and about. Whether we are on a family camping trip, at a beach firepit, enjoying an outdoor pool on vacation, or trying to catch ourselves some dinner, the Terminix ALLCLEAR Mosquito Mister Lantern will definitely be coming with us.
Want one in time for Father's Day? You're in luck because the Terminix ALLCLEAR Mosquito Mister Lantern can be found at ACE and True Value Hardware stores as well as online at Target, Amazon, Home Depot and more. It retails for $79.99 and additional Naturals Refills are sold for $7.99.
