Default The Thermacell

Guy's my wife gave me a gift certificate for Christmas this past winter ,so today I was visiting my local archery shop and they had just got a shipment in of the Thermacell's ,being an outdoor's person I figured this would be a good thing to have on those early fall or summer fishing trip's and hunting trip's .I';ve heard that the thermacell really work's well ,but I'm a little unsure about it being as good as I've heard .
Can anyone tell me what they think of the thermacell,Does it work well? or is it just another piece of equipment that won't get used ?.

I won't go hunting where there are bugs again with out one. Absolutely the best product made for repelling biting mosquitoes. I was skeptical at first also but I am here to tell you that they absolutely work.

Get into a tree stand or at one of your fishing holes with it on. Then turn it off and be prepared to turn it back on within just a few minutes.

I did that last year hunting in Alabama in a tree stand 25 feet up. I thought...... I'm high enough away from the skeeters I can turn this off. So I turned it off and within a couple of minutes I was being swarmed. I immediately turned it back on and soon they were completely gone again.


Terry, here is their link.

If this contraption really works it worth its weight in gold! Does it spook game with noise or smell ?

It is the best thing to have in the woods. I hunt the swamps in Fl and you don't go in there without a Thermacell! I love Mine I have 4 now I keep one in my truck one in my hunting backpack one in my turkey vest and one on my climber. They do not spook game. Well not deer or turkeys. This past spring I had mine on turkey hunting and I had 5 deer walk with in 3-4 yards of me. I killed a turkey 10 steps away. They are Great!

I ordered two and am exited to try them out. I have heard NOTHING but good reviews from folks that have used them. I never even heard of this until this year. Kinda weird.
