Tiki Torches are super useful outdoor lanterns, providing light, ambiance, and (depending on the fuel) mosquito protection. Whether the torch is a modern metal Tiki torch
or a kitschy bamboo style one, the type of fuel put into the torch will determine how well it burns, what the smell and smoke levels are, and how well the bugs are repelled. After a thorough examination of several types of Tiki Torch Fuel, we have determined that the Best Tiki Torch Fuel on the market is the Firefly Eucalyptus Blend Tiki Fuel
. A 2017 study
in the Oxford Journal of Insect Science
tested several mosquito repellent products and found Eucalyptus to be one of the most effective substances at keeping mosquitoes away — much better than Citronella, which the study found did not do much at all.
As an additional plus, this Tiki Torch Fuel smells fairly mild, and produces a relatively low amount of smoke and soot. It’s a bit more expensive than the traditional Tiki Torch Fuels, but we feel the benefits this fuel offers make it more than worth the extra cost.
