Hammacher Schlemmer Introduces Its 2016 Mosquito Collection

New York, NY, March 29, 2016 - Continuing its 168-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer announces a wide assortment of countermeasures that zap, trap, and repel mosquitoes.

"We've been helping our customers avoid the annoyance of mosquitoes for decades by offering innovative, guaranteed solutions based upon proven, reliable science," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns.

The Mosquito Zapping Light Bulb fits into any standard light socket yet renders mosquitoes inert with a 3,000-volt electrified cage-all while producing 920 lumens of energy-efficient, soft white light that illuminates porches, patios, and decks without the need for a dedicated trap.

Without the noisesome, greasy chemicals common to lesser methods, The One-Acre Natural Attractant Mosquito Trap lures the pesky insect by mimicking the natural conditions of human habitation, generating heat and carbon dioxide. Mosquitoes drawn into the trap by its integrated fan contains them indefinitely, where they expire of dehydration and eventually shrivel.

When being in proximity of mosquitoes is required, The 120 Hour Personal Mosquito Repeller clips to a belt and repels mosquitoes within a 7.5-mile radius for up to five days. Without using chemical-based sprays, the device emits the subtle floral scent of geraniol, a plant-derived essential oil that naturally repels mosquitoes, proven in laboratory tests by a University of Florida entomologist to be more effective than DEET.
