Mosquitoes and flies, what a nightmare !

Anti-moustiques bio

Mosquitoes can smell you from a distance of 20 to 30 metres. It is the female mosquito that is looking to bite you. Not to annoy you, but simply to feed. She finds in your blood all the proteins she needs for her eggs to develop. And when it comes to eating quickly, the mosquito is very good. It only needs 2 to 3 seconds to fill up on your blood. To avoid being bitten, there is a solution.

With the Otentik repellent candle, mosquitoes and flies will stay at a safe distance. This candle, made from wax and Geraniol, has been designed to keep the most troublesome flying insects at bay during the summer season. It is designed for use inside your home. It burns for approximately 20 hours. It's easy to switch on and off, so you can enjoy your summer evenings in total peace and quiet. The candle holder is made of glass for safe combustion.

As a reminder, geraniol is non-endocrine disrupting and non-toxic to bees.

Mosquito preferences

Popular beliefs have long suggested that mosquitoes are only attracted to people with sweet blood. This would explain why some people fall victim to mosquitoes more often than others. In reality, it's not quite that simple. Although mosquitoes do indeed like to eat sweet foods, it is primarily the carbon dioxide they exhale that attracts them. The more carbon dioxide a person exhales, the greater the risk of being bitten. Secondly, according to a Japanese study, it is true that individuals with blood group O are more likely to be bitten because their blood secretes more carbohydrates.

Packaging

Candle presented in a glass jar wrapped in cardboard.

We answer your questions

▼ Is this repellent candle designed for outdoor use ?
It's not recommended for outdoor use even though it's not forbidden :) Indoor use will however give you better results in terms of repellency.
▼ On approximately what surface does this candle protect us from insects ?
The effectiveness study carried out in the laboratory (in an enclosed area) covered a room 2.5m high, 3m wide and 4m long, i.e. 30 m3. So that gives you a good idea !

Precautions for use

Place the candle on a flat, heat-resistant surface, away from any flammable materials. May cause skin allergy. Causes severe eye irritation. Keep out of reach of children. In case of skin contact, wash thoroughly. In case of contact with eyes, rinse cautiously with water for several minutes. Remove contact lenses if present and removable. Dispose of the contents of the container at a hazardous or special waste collection centre.
