Forming a Border with Paper Lanterns
When paper lanterns are used to repel mosquitoes, there must be an adequate number of candles placed in the correct fashion in order to effectively reduce the number of mosquitoes in the area. Mosquito repelling candles usually deter mosquitoes in a radius of anywhere from five to ten feet; the range of the candles depends upon its size. If you are unsure the range of the candle, check with its manufacturer. You will need to keep a one foot overlap of the radii of the candles. The last foot of the radius has the weakest protection, so overlapping will “double” this protection, ensuring that there are no weak spots in your defense.
