FAQ’s on burning candles: Bite-Lite® Natural Mosquito Repellent Candles are meant to be burned outdoors. But you will find that outdoor temperatures have a profound effect on the way any candles burn outside, as well as how the melted wax pool forms. As a result, we at Bite-Lite® would like to offer the following tips:
What can I expect when using Bite-Lite® Natural Repellent Candles?
No mosquito control candle will give 100% protection; however, when using an appropriate number of candles (minimum 2-3) for the area, you should achieve a significant reduction in the number of mosquito landings approaching 75-80%.
How do I use Bite‑Lite® Natural Repellent Candles?
For best results, it is important to light the candles 20 minutes before going outside. It is best to light at least 2-3 candles to protect the area that you’ll be occupying; more for larger groups of people. Also, all repellent candles are most effective when there is little or no wind to quickly disperse the repellent. If there is wind, be sure the vapors from the candles are between you and the mosquitoes. The Spearmint and Lemongrass Oils are released from the candles by evaporation from the hot, melted pool of wax that forms while the candle is burning. (Note: The oils in Bite-Lite natural repellents are not released from the flame.)
Most mosquitoes rest during the day and come out at dusk. If the repellent candles are burned before you go outdoors or before the mosquitoes become active, they may move away from the space you are trying to protect and not find their way back easily when you go outside. Mosquitoes find you most easily if they’re already close and can sense your heat signature.
These are just some of the tips from our FAQ page that you should be aware of when using our candles to prolong the effectiveness of your candles, along with basic safety reminders. Read more information about Bite-Lite natural repellents on FAQ’s.
