When it comes to camping, there are those who prefer to rough it, backpacking all their gear in and out of remote locations, and those who want to take creature comforts along, perhaps with an RV equipped with satellite TV, wi-fi, and a full bathroom.
Autumn’s arrival signals the perfect time for a camping excursion. The cooler days and nights make for a more pleasant experience. But you may find that when it comes to mosquitos, they didn’t get the memo that summer’s over. To that end, we have a couple of suggestions to keep mozzies from spoiling an otherwise-memorable campout.
The Solar Powered Bug Zapper eliminates insects without requiring proximity to a power outlet. Six UV bulbs turn on automatically at dusk (and turn off at dawn) and lure mosquitoes, flies, and other insects to eliminate them instantly within a 1/2-acre radius. This chemical-free bug protection provides up to eight hours of operation from an eight-hour solar charge.
Doing some hiking? Take insect-repelling technology right along with you with The 120 Hour Personal Mosquito Repeller. About the size of a smartphone, this device clips unobtrusively to a belt and repels mosquitoes within a 7 1/2′ radius. It uses geraniol, a plant-derived essential oil that eliminates the need to apply chemical-based sprays.
Now that your campsite is free of annoying insects, don’t forget a unique gift for roasting marshmallows and wienies over an open fire. The Campfire Roasting Rod is a patented device that enables campers to roast hot dogs and toast marshmallows from a safe distance as if fishing. Gently jigging the pole upwards—just like setting the hook while fishing—flips the roasting spits over for even cooking.
So whether you’re a novice camper or an experienced bivouacker, plan some time before winter’s winds howl to enjoy the unique gifts of the great outdoors.
