How large an area does this protect?

I have to light both of them and have them directly in front of me to keep the bugs out of my face. They do work okay when I do that but they don't work for keeping anything off of the legs of anyone around. They only seem to work up and out. I would say they have about a 3 to 4 foot radius.

The 6 oz. Home Defense Outdoor Candle has such a fresh citrus scent and long-lasting (and durable flame - even in high winds!) you wont even realize there are no pesky mosquitoes around for days! Each candle provides up to 40 hours of burn time and even though each individual candle appears small - they each individually pack a punch! The box even has distance diagram so you know how far to place each one apart for maximum strength!

The defense outdoor candles are very effective and aren't like the old fashioned citronella candles, that really smelled badly. These have a pretty good scent to them, and they keep the bugs at bay for sure. There are 2 candles provided in the pack and they come in a tin or aluminum can type of container. They both have lids, so you can reuse them several times.

Two Home Defense outdoor candles in one box! Very easy to light the candles, they emit a very nice citrus fragrance. You could actually use these on your picnic table while eating. The smell is not overpowering! These candles contain spearmint oil and lemongrass oil to keep the mosquitoes and other insects away and does an very good job at that, they burn for up to 40 hours.. The candles are easily extinguished and place metal top back on can for next use.

Candles were delivered, late, but delivered. They smell strongly of lemongrass, which is much better than the chemical smell of traditional mosquito candles. They're small, however, than traditional candles. I'm interested to see how long they will last. These candles seemed to divert mosquito activity from the patio, but it's early in the season. I hope they continue to perform in the heart of summer.

Wow ! Three weeks to be delivered ! Now that spring has sprung, so have the bugs ! I like these candles as you can use on an open (well ventilated) porch and on your deck. These are not as strong smelling as Citronella candles. These use a combination of Spearmint, Lemongrass and Palm Oils with a dash of Vitamin E to repel the bugs ! Metal cans are a safe holder. The Ortho Group have a good one here !!

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
These candles do produce a very nice aroma that does have the fragrance of spearmint and lemongrass, although very slight and does not ever become uncomfortable even when on out deck which has a roof and all sides are covered over with fine mesh. Having bought 2 of these packs last year, we found that the effectiveness in keeping annoying mossies at bay, when experiencing a slight breeze on our open porch was limited. Although the advertisement states that each candle has up to a 40 hour life effectiveness span, we found that after 4 days and a 6 hour use each day, the mosquitoes were starting to return with venom. Yep we live next to running water. The aroma had all but been exhausted by the 24 hour use and these pesky biting varmints quickly caught on. I do like these and I shall definitely buy some more in the summer months for use on our enclosed mesh deck but not so much on the open porch.

I ordered these candles from www.HomeDepot.com, shipping took a while, but they arrived undamaged. The package contains 2 candles each in it's own tin. The package says the candles will burn for up to 40 hours but it does not say if that is 40 hours for each candle, or 20 hours each candle for a total of 40 hours of burning from both candles. The ingredients are all natural, so these are safe to burn around children. The ingredients are Spearmint Oil, Lemongrass Oil, Palm Oil, and Vitamin E. They smell fantastic. We'll probably use lots of these candles around dusk on our new deck this year.

keep the bugs away
Customer review from scotts.com logo
This has been great for getting all the junk out of my lawn, in Texas it can be a struggle and when other yard owners are not as committed it is easy for your yard to be overtaken by bugs. This comes to the rescue and does an amazing job. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
