From picnics in the park during the day to backyard barbecues at night, summer brings so many opportunities for al fresco dining. But with the great outdoors comes pests and the inconvenience of mosquito bites. To keep bugs at bay, Amazon shoppers recommend the Thermacell E55 Rechargeable Mosquito Repeller.

You won't have to spray or swat with this portable device: Just hit the battery-powered Thermacell's power button to repel mosquitos within a 20-foot radius. The E55 covers up to 80 percent more space than previous models, and it starts fully protecting you in just 15 minutes. The USB-rechargeable battery allows for up to five a half hours of mosquito protection on a full charge, while the repellent itself lasts 12 hours. The device comes with a 12-hour refill, and for even longer protection, a 40-hour refill is also available. 

And there are no scents, flames, or citronella involved at all, unlike a lot of other repellent products. Once the heater inside is activated, the protection begins and a barrier between you and mosquitos is formed. In fact, its effectiveness has landed it the top spot on Amazon's Patio, Lawn, and Garden new releases list. 

To buy: Thermacell E55 Rechargeable Mosquito Repeller, $40 at amazon.com

Though this Thermacell mosquito repeller was released on Amazon just last month, it’s already raking in positive reviews. “I was sitting outside with friends and the mosquitoes started coming out so I turned it on and we enjoyed the rest of the visit without being bothered,” wrote one customer in Texas. 

“Product works perfectly. No scent. No noise. I live in bug central, where flying insects are large, mean, and able to devour you in a swarm of bloodlust. We have large biting flies, gnats, mosquitoes, you-name-it. LOVE this product,” shared another. 

If you order the Thermacell E55 Rechargeable Mosquito Repeller on Amazon now, it should arrive in time for Memorial Day weekend.
