I have 2 they work great 1 for the camp and 1 for the boat. They work so well I'm thinking to giving the Thermoscent a go and see how it works ( same idea, just for scent dispersal not bug dispersal)

yup best repellant out thier never go outside with out one to far away. it does get a little spendy to run but it dont stick to ya and its pretty much scent free. usually lasts twelve hours.

$25 for the unit

$6 for the refills

To make the refills last a bit longer, I cut the scent pad in half and then get butane refills from the Walmart beauty department. The butane cartridge used for Thermocell are the exact same as the ones used in a Conair cordless curling iron. They're pretty cheap too, as I recall. I don't notice any reduction in effectiveness by using half a pad. YMMV.

My brother brought a Thermocell up to Canada fishing with us one time and that made a believer out of me. We were able to sit on the deck of the cabin drinking beers without bug spray and without getting eaten alive. We had a few skeeters, but not enough to drive us inside.

    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
