The Military Mosquito Countermeasure

Mosquitoes can be quite problematic, especially during the summer months. It always pays to come prepared by dealing with mosquitoes early before it becomes a problem. You can never get a better deal than using what the military uses to handle their mosquito problem. Presenting, the Military Mosquito Countermeasure, a device to deal with that pesky pest the military way.

With a military sounding name to it, the Military Mosquito Countermeasure is simply, a mosquito repelling device to most of us civilians. But its military grade protection may be something that would be quite useful. This device tested by the the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research and is proven to be 95 percent effective in repelling mosquitoes. It uses a mat doused with d-cis/trans allethrin, a synthetic version of a naturally occurring insecticide found in chrysanthemum, to repel those pests.

A butane fueled heater vaporizes the repellent to create a 15 feet by 15 feet zone around a user where mosquitoes as well as other pesky biting insects wouldn’t dare cross. The Military Mosquito Countermeasure is available at Hammacher Schlemmer for US$35. Repellent mat refills are also available separately for US$25 a set.
