Sliced Bread, Pockets on a Shirt, and Now…Thermacell

Add Thermacell to the list of handiest little inventions on Earth. These things do actually work. You will need the butane refills, and the replacement repellent mats. A mat will last about 4 hours. I usually can get about two turkey hunts out of each mat in the spring (since I only turn it on when I am sitting down). The butane cartridge will last around 12 hours.

Such a necessity for being outdoors

Hubby is a Marine and the mosquitos LOVE him. A friend and fellow Marine recommended this little gem and it’s amazing for sleeping during field ops. It would be nice if the pads had a longer “lifespan” and it doesn’t seem to work on all different kinds of bugs (does not work to deter horseflies) but it works amazingly well on mosquitoes. Definitely a worthwhile purchase to save him a lot of discomfort and help him catch some much needed sleep during training.

This actually works great! Bought it just to try it out

This actually works great! Bought it just to try it out. A ton of rain this year means a ton of mosquito’s and I couldn’t even sit on the porch without them swarming me. I got this out of the package while sitting on my porch, mosquito’s swarming me in shorts and tank top. I turned this on and set it on the porch floor next to me. Within 5 minutes they were gone… literally dozens and dozens of mosquito’s…gone and for over half an hour I had not one touch me or buzz next to me. I would recommend to all buyers and users, start it up 5-10 minutes before you want to occupy your porch space or have it effective and let it fill the zone with the repellent. Next will be trying it out in the field for hunting.

Best ever!

So far, so good! Had a campfire in the backyard and not one skeeter bite. They usually think I’m a smorgasbord! Big test will be in the middle of summer with the heat and humidity at the max. But this spring, it’s doing great!

FINALLY – No Pesky Skeeters

My husband bought this for a fishing trip in the Everglades of Florida. If you know anything about Florida, especially the Everglades, you know that the bugs are thicker than the humidity. This little gadget made it a breeze. ABSOLUTELY no pesky mosquitoes within sight. We are going to order another for back yard barbecues in the summer. If you care about your health, especially in the summer when mosquitoes can cry disease, thermaCell can keep you happy & healthy. Easy to use.

Worth the $$

bought this after having a co-worker recommend it and I was a little doubtful that it would work…but it work great and in fact some friends of ours bought one after sitting out on our back deck this summer without having any bugs biting.

It works!

I’m attacked every time I even step out on the porch. A friend saw a review for this after coming over and suffering multiple bites. I turned this on and walked onto my back porch and did not get a single welt. I don’t care that I have to replace the cartridges. It is money well spent.

Best Bug Protection Ever!

Best Money ever spent on outdoor bug protection. I watched my Archery Club members use these over the last year so I finally made my purchase to coincide with a work day to put up some fencing out in the woods on the club property. No bites….easy to use… The Mosquitos were thick in these Florida woods….it worked PERFECTLY. Highly recommend it. I also get to use in my backyard with the same results!

First and foremost, it works. It won’t keep everything away, the strips won’t last a full 4 hours, and the effective radius is much smaller than advertised. But it does work. I was Dove hunting last weekend and it was 90+ degrees and bugs were out in full force. I was getting bitten and stung by all kinds of bugs and bees. Honestly, I got stung by a sweat bee within the first 5 minutes of setting up. I don’t think I even had my chair set up before I got stung the first time. Once I got this thing going I didn’t get bitten or stung again. Bugs would fly close, but nothing would land on me. I had it pretty close to me so I imagine the giant radius they claim is grossly exaggerated. However, it works. It’s great for one or two people hunting very close such as in a blind, but probably not for a full patio of people in the backyard.
