  • Kincho Katori Senko Mosquito Coils
    Summer is a great time in Japan, but for one problem: mosquitoes, which buzz and fly and bite and are generally terrible. These are coils of katori senko or "mosquito killing incense" which stat sit for up to 8 hours, giving off a pleasant odor and a little smoke. The smoke kills the bugs by blocking their breathing holes with smoke particles. There are three types of mosquito coil in this large sized can: sweet lavender, rose and relaxing forest scent, ten coils of each. To use, light a mosquito coil and place it in the secure section at top of the can. It's also popular with J-List customers for use when camping. A great Japanese item with a cool retro Gold Cock packaging!

  • Fly Buster Pheromone   Haetori Pheromone
    Fun fact: in Japanese the word for "loud" or "annoying" is urusai, written with kanji as 五月蠅い, which literally means "the noisy buzzing flies of May." If you hate noisy buzzing flies, Japan has an answer: a fruit fly pheromone box that attracts the flies then kills them inside the box with sticky tape they can't escape from. This is a super great item because it attracts the flies with odors that we can't detect, and uses no actual insect killing chemicals, which might be unsafe to have around the house. Great for kitchen, outdoor, neat your pets or anywhere. To use, remove the fly attraction pads inside their foil wrapping and attach it to the bottom of the cardboard unit. Remove the sticky sheet's backing and slide it inside the unit as shown. You can attach the fly attractor box either with the included dual-sided sticky tape or with a string. One unit promises to be effective for 3 weeks, so buy several so you don't run out this summer!
