I purchased two of the OFF lanterns last summer but was skeptical that they would do the job of repelling the mosquitoes from my porch area.

The wicks are short lived (the box says 4 hours) but I get a little better than that. Also, the candles are "specific" to the lantern, and you can't just use any decorative candle as a replacement, which ups the cost. The refills include the candles, though I wish that just the wicks were also available as an option.
Love, love, love this lantern and refills!
This lantern puts out just enough light, and with the addition of the mosquito pads, it's two amazing products in one! My only wish would be that the candles lasted a little longer, but I still love it!
If it was organic, it would be A PERFECT PRODUCT!!!
If I wanted to enjoy my garden this summer, I had no choice but to use this non-organic product, as it WORKS! All of the natural means to keep the SWARMS of mosquitoes off myself and my guests were in vain.
