MENOMONEE FALLS, Wis., April 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Summer is about entertaining outdoors, and as we dust off our outdoor furniture, the backyard quickly becomes the favorite room of the house for the warmer months. As you worry about what appetizers to make and drinks to serve, the one thing you don't want to worry about is uninvited guests ruining the fun.
Mosquitoes will emerge sooner and be out more this year due to the warm spring temperatures we have been experiencing across America. So while Americans will enjoy the warmer weather and outdoor parties, mosquitoes will enjoy it even more and intrude on gatherings without an invitation. These rude and pesky insects thrive on party-crashing and usually include it in their weekend plans.
For summer 2012, TIKI® Brand outdoor torches with BiteFighter® Torch Fuel are the perfect outdoor party ally and will have mosquitoes running for cover. This unique formula of citronella plus cedar oil is designed specifically to repel mosquitos and provides proven protection for your backyard when added to any TIKI® Brand torch. New this year is the BiteFighter® DoubleWick™ Torch system that creates a large, dancing flame that is proven to repel mosquitos when used with BiteFighter® Torch Fuel.
"Not only will TIKI® Brand torches with TIKI® Brand BiteFighter® Torch Fuel protect your summer guests from mosquitoes, there are several design options that enhance the party ambiance and make your backyard an outdoor paradise," said interior designer and HGTV Design Stars fan favorite Kellie Clements.
Other decorative torches include King TIKI® Torch, Island King® Large Flame Torch and the 4-in-1 Multi-Use Torch, which can be used in a variety of ways, including as a standard torch, a garden torch, clamped to a deck and rested on a tabletop.
"The design versatility of the 4-in-1 Multi-Use Torch allows you to be creative and invent a different atmosphere, depending on the occasion," Clements said. "The tabletop and deck options are great for a more intimate setting, whereas the standard and garden torch set the perfect mood for a larger gathering."
