Late frosts with negative temperatures occur from time to time. It gets particularly cold between 4 a.m. until shortly after sunrise. The vegetation can already flourish and the first flowering can be observed. The flowers in viticulture and fruit growing freeze in such nights, which can lead to high crop losses. This is where the Balthasar frost candle "anti-frost" can help.
The Balthasar frost candle "anti-frost" has a high efficiency and can raise the temperatures above freezing point when used correctly. The burning time is approx. 10 hours per candle.
Balthasar frost candle "anti-frost" is produced in Central Switzerland from recycled paraffin from the candle industry.
The frost candle is delivered in a tin bucket with lid. The application is very simple. The candle must be placed on a level surface to ensure safe burning. The cardboard wick is lit in the bucket with a Bunsen burner or a torch. To extinguish the candle, the lid is put back on and the flame suffocates (please observe the burning instructions).
