It’s hard to believe summer is just about here! With my girls out of school, we can enjoy lingering outdoor dinners by the pool without the chaos of homework, school projects and after-school activities. There’s something so wonderful about being outside in the fresh air, while Scott lights the grill and the girls and their friends swim in the pool.

While enjoying time outdoors during summer months is one of the best parts of the season, it can often come with the misery of uninvited mosquitos. Recently, I was asked to review TIKI Brand Bitefighter Torch Fuel and I have to say I love it! The citronella and cedar formula provides proven repellency and works with all TIKI Brand torches and table torches.

Not only is Bitefighter Torch Fuel a game changer when enjoying the outdoors but TIKI Brand has worked hard to create a line of of stylish designs that seamlessly fit into your outdoor landscape and patios.

I just love my white and gold vessels and feel like they add a beautiful decorative touch to my outdoor living area and dining table. They have so many beautiful styles to choose from.

They were beautiful on the tables at the poolside dinner I hosted a few weeks ago.  These TIKI Brand table torches have an adjustable flame so you are able to control the size of the flame.

TIKI Brand products are long lasting and super easy to use. One 100-ounce bottle of BiteFighter Torch Fuel can fill eight 12-ounce canisters. Not only are they super easy to use but the scent is not overwhelming like other repellents I have used in the past.

If you plan to entertain outdoors this summer, TIKI Brand Bitefighter Fuel is something you will want to have on hand. It’s an easy way to keep pesky mosquitos away.

Here’s to a fabulous summer!



Thank you to TIKI Brand for sponsoring this post.  All selections and opinions are my own.
