For some reason I attract mozzies no matter what country I'm in. These keep them at bay and I can sit or work in the garden with a few of these placed around me and I'm protected. Good value too. I stock up every spring ready for the summer.
Keeps the mosquitos away. Incense has a really lovely lemony scent. Light them and pop them around the pots plants where you would sit and it keep the mosquitos at bay.
Seemed to work well to keep the biters away... Although I did use them in combination with nets and repellent. They are now part of my insect fighting ammunition.
Love these. We've moved recently, and although is terrific being nestled in the woodland, we were surprised by how many midges there are. Light one of these, leave it burning on your window sill, and hey presto, the midges are no longer a problen. Lovely aroma too.
I haven't used incense for a few years and I thought I would try again. I wasn't disappointed. The scent wafted through the house and lingered for quite a while after it had finished burning. They lasted for about half an hour per stick.
