Thermacell Mosquuito Repellent

17 posts in this topic

Be hearing a lot of good things about this. It's supposedly SCENTFREE and works great. Anyone tried it yet?

Yes, I own two. I cannot say that they smell as I have used it for archery hunting and no issues with the deers nose. Thats a tough nose to beat.

Overall, I would not go fishing in the morning or evening on the ribver without it.

We also use it on the patio.

They also have an earth scented repellent pad now if you're at all worried about having a bad scent around from the original pad.

If you're also interested, they make a piece that snaps over the front grill and you can apply your favorite scent to a different pad and it heats, supposedly making it stronger. I have a good friend of mine that used it to go bear hunting and honey to the pad to do a honey burn.

i got it at gander mt the appliance was 24.99 the 4 pack refill 19.99 and the holster was 9.99 so total of $55 i am hoping it will last through bear and archery deer seasons without having to get any more refills for it.

Each pad usually will last 3-4 hours. From what I've found the pads will loose a little effectiveness after the 3rd hour, but will still repell most of the bugs.

My brother-in-law, who thinks he knows everything, mocked me incessently when I started using mine on the Fourth of July. He thinks its a big gimmick. I tried to explain to him a few times how it worked and he just shook his head. Then when one mosquito came near him, he really gave me grief. I just ignored him like usual but I get a kick out of it since he's carried on before about how well Citronella candles work. Hello, same concept except a lot better and more effective.

Keep an eye out for sales at that big Fleet place they run from time to time. I got a super deal on the 4 pak refills there this spring.

The bugs haven't even been close to what they were last year, so I haven't been using up my supply all that much.

I would not even consider sitting in astand or a blind without one early in the season.

Wife was even impressed at our latest campfire when she was going to go in due to the bugs, until I broke out the Thermocell, she decided to stay a bit longer.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
