This $21 portable Thermacell mosquito repeller might allow you enjoy the outdoors again.

Place this down next to you when you’re outside, or throw in your hiking backpack and this cordless, odor-free device claims to ward off flying insects (most notably, mosquitoes) as far as 15 feet away for up to 12 hours.


After those 12 hours, you can replace the repellent mats and repellant-dispersing butane cartridge.

Most reviewers say it works pretty well, especially on days with little-to-no wind. Note the different colors are different prices, but this $21 gray model (the least expensive color) hasn’t been this cheap since 2016.
