Here is the link to their site.

They work by heating up a little blue mat that is impregnated with repellant. It vaporizes the ingrediants and creates an invisible barrier that keeps out the bugs.

You can get them at just about any sporting goods store.

I wanted to give the Thermacel a try so I lit it up and put it on my porch with the overhead lights ON! Within 10 min there were no mosquitos! A few moths but nothing else. I turned it off and in a few min the porch was swarmed. They work!

every now and then I smell my thermal cell but I use skunk cover sent hell could put perfume on and not be winded.For the Florida guy I am in Louisiana we have alot of bugs in these swamps also and it works not even a buzz noise.Like I said earlier turn it on and let it warm up or they will eat your butt up while waiting for it to start working

I was trying not to have to use a cover scnet but it may be that I might have to. At least for the next month while the bugs are still around.

i went to k-mart and saw them for 19.99$ the box says the pad will last for uo to 4 hours. it lists the ingrediant on the box and i will probably do a search on it. i wonder what it does exactly and if breathing that stuff in is any good for you. i use permanone for ticks on my cloths from time to time but i dont like to. deet sprays dont look all that great either but i guess you gotta use something from time to time.

Liquid, the ingredients are in such small ammounts that it will not hurt you at all.I researched it also and everything I read tells me there is nothing to be alarmed about at all.

The crap we breathe on the road going to work every day is hundreds of times worse for us than a thermacell every now and then.

What little odor there is is very slight. Humans put off far more alarming odors just by breathing. The thermacell odor is squat compared to our odors. Even when using scent suits.
