Default Thermocell works!

FYI - Temperature this morning in south Louisiana at 4 am - 71 degrees - foggy, very light NE wind; mosquitoes everywhere[X(]! Took it for as long as I could stand it - I even had a bug suit on and they were biting me through it wherever it was tight. At around 730 am I decided to give the thermocell a try since nothing was moving around. I placed it as close to the tree as possible on the platform of my climber. In about 10 minutes I removed my head net because I noticed that the mosquitoes were not buzzing around me anymore. I did not see any deer this morning (I don' t think they were moving at all), but at least I still have blood left to hunt another day. I was amazed. I didn' t notice any smell, but common sense tells me that anything that is a repellant must give off some form of odor. Only time will tell for sure if deer can detect it - but for now it works wonders when the winds are light and the bugs are hungry!! Any reports on deer detecting this thing?

That' s great to hear, I' ve used one for the first time this year also.

I wonder if we could incorperate some sort of cover scent ridning the heat wave off of the burner? Like placing an earth scent wafer on top of the heating surface?

I used mine hunting swamp friday afternoon. The mosquitoes were killing me!!! Fired the Thermocell up and BAM in 15 minutes they were gone. Killed a 8 point at dusk. They say it is odorless, I had it under my seat on the foot platform of my loc-on stand. it was completely out of the way when the deer came in! It will go in the woods with me everytime!!!
