Now that summer weather is finally here, you want to get out and enjoy your backyard. Unfortunately, the mosquitoes do too.

You have two options: You can coat yourself in smelly bug spray every time you head outside or you can invest in a handy device that's specially designed to ward off mosquitoes. Interested in the latter option? Just for today, Amazon has slashed the price of the top-rated Thermacell E55 Rechargeable Mosquito Repeller. With the help of this machine, you can get protection from skeeters for just $30, no bug spray involved.

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

How does this all work? The Thermacell E55 Rechargeable Mosquito Repellent creates a 20-foot mosquito protection zone. You just plop it in your backyard, pool area or patio, push a button to turn it on, and you can enjoy up to 12 hours of mosquito protection while you hang out.

The device uses a special repellent that doesn't have a scent — it's just there. Simply use the repellent until the cartridge is empty, and then pop in a new one. (It's also been reviewed by the Environmental Protection Agency for safety and effectiveness.)

The whole thing is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and gives you up to 5.5 hours of mosquito-fighting power. Once you're done, simply use the USB charging cable to fire it up again.

The Thermacell E55 Rechargeable Mosquito Repellent even has a two-year warranty and 100% satisfaction guarantee, just in case anything goes wrong.

People rave about how well this little device works to ward off mosquitoes. "Five minutes after I started it up, the bugs just disappeared," said a happy customer. "It's working on gnats and biting flies as well as mosquitoes. I've tried citronella candles, torches, fogger, just about everything, and Thermacell is the only thing that really, really works."

A Florida resident called the Thermacell "the most effective and convenient mosquito repellent on the market." They continued, "I just started using it a few hours ago and am already amazed and shocked at its effectiveness. I had been sitting in swarming mosquitoes on my patio, pushed the on button and a mere few minutes later all were gone! My skepticism kicked in, maybe it was somehow coincidence, so I turned it off. Minutes later the swarm returned. Pushed the button, minutes later, again swarm gone. Completely impressed and satisfied."

Again, this sale is just for today. If you want a solution to your outdoor mosquito problem, it's time to act.
