Citronella Hanging Coil
Buh-bye to the buzz.
When balmy nights call for lounging under the stars, one thing’s for certain: Your buzzy mosquito friends will be sure to keep you company. Keep those uninvited guests at bay with a citronella coil. It works like this: You light up one end, and the coil burns slowly, letting off a steady stream of citronella-infused smoke. The lemony scent of citronella, a grass native to Southeast Asia, masks the human odors that make you so enticing to mosquitos. Citronella is non-toxic to humans and animals, so you don’t even have to worry about harming those pesky bugs.
What’s especially brilliant: it can be hung at various heights, allowing the fragrant, bug-repelling smoke to disperse evenly for full coverage. Plus, they make for quirky, eye-catching decorations.
