Yes it says in small print Not Intended for Mosquitos but it is literally sold next to all of the Off products at Home Depot.
How is this tolerable, SCJohnson?
Never buying Off again. Shame on me for trusting Off and SCJohnson (apparently a family company that tries to mislead customers).

After lighting this candle, it took 10 minutes or so and then just like that no bugs on the patio. We had a table of 10 outside that this covered and protected completely even with food and drinks sitting out. Will be picking up a few more for the summer ahead. The photo attached is after the forst 3 hours of buring all three wicks the first night we used it.
I was going to write a review on how poorly this is for repelling mosquitoes but realized by the comments and the description that it’s just a candle. So here is my review on a candle. The wicks are too small and the lightest wind blows them out. It definitely didn’t last the 50 hours as described. I had asked my wife to but a mosquito candle and she purchased this “Off brand candle” in the mosquito isle with other mosquito repellants. If it doesn’t repel mosquitos then it needs to be in the “candle isle” I wasn’t aware that Off made just candles. Bad product placement on someone’s behalf. It attracted more bugs than it repelled.
This triple candle wick is effective in repelling mosquitoes when we are sitting outside at night. It is a great size for the value. The citronella scent is not overwhelming; however, a nice addition to this candle would be for it to have a scent such as lavender or jasmine.
It looks cute, it is decorative but a horrible burning wick. It burns unevenly and the wax seems to be cheap It doesn't melt properly. i contacted J & J.. buy the other type in the metal container. way better
Pros: Nice Design
Cons: Difficult to Use, bad buring, wick isnt good, wax seems cheap
