I have one, and have used it a couple of times. I wouldn't leave home this time of year in SE GAwithout it. Definately worth the $$.

thermacell's are definitely worth the money! works very very well in a calm wind... but not as well when windy cuz the scent gets blown around.

I was using mine today in my ladder stand with a large Lake about 75 yards behind me....when the butane ran out and theThermaCell quit workingthe mosquito's just about carried me off....so "Yes" they work very well and you won't be swatting at bugs all evening and giving your position away to the Deer!

Great info.I am new to the sport and was wondering if this devices work. Not a bad price. Just good to know if they are functional or just a novelty. My son and I will hunt North Louisiana and after the hurricanes the woods are packed with mosquites. Thanks for the input!!!!

One of the items to never forget early in the year, they do work as advertised.

I hunt the river bottoms in MS. I would not sell mine for $100. As long as the wind is not to high, it works perfect. You get a little wind and it does not keep the "fumes" around you and does no good. However, most of the time if you have a little wind, mosquitoes are not as bad.
