just bought one, skeeters love me BTW[:@], my question now is, i noticed the small butane bottle, is that the only one you can use, i have read/glanced over the instructions, it sounds like the packet?? last around 4 hours, how long does the butane last, what all comes in a "refill pack" thanks for the info and the post, i will probably be trying mine out this W/E, but it will be while doing some hot work in skeeter country[:@][:-][&o]

the refill pack comes with an extra butane cartridge and 3 repellent pads. i usually don't use more than 2 butane cartridges a year. as soon as the sun comes up and the skeeters slack off i shut it down.

Nope. Just the aerial assault buggers. It doesn't do anything for largerbugs like deer flies or hornets either, but just what they do for mosquitoes and black flies its worth itsweight in gold.
