Thermacell- Bug Repellent

13 posts in this topic

Anyone ever use this Thermacell thing they advertise during a lot of hunting shows? It is some sort of device that emits an odor and it is suppose to create a 15' x 15' barrier around it and keep bugs out. I got chased off the lake by the skeeters on Saturday and was wondering if this thing was worth trying....Thanks for any help.

I have one and i used it during the archery hunt for turkey, and I was very impressed. After I lit it I did not have a mosquito bite me. It takes about 5-10 min. to have it work effectively. I was hunting in my T2 dbl.bull blind. If i was to loose this one I would buy another for sure.

I have heard VERY good things about them!

My nightfishing, catfishing buddies use them quite regularly in the boat with great results.

For those that have used this product, which model do you use in the boat? Latern, compact, or repellent device?

I have the green repellent devise. I didnt use it in the boat yet but a friend did in Canada and said it did the job. I use mine mostly for camping.

They do work!!! I was camping a couple weeks ago and was getting eaten by the mosquitoes. Lit my Thermacell and within 10 minutes the mosquitoes were gone!

I've never used it bowhunting but I think I will try it this fall. The southern bowhunters on some of the other websites that I read swear by the Thermacells.

I couldn't smell anything but then my nose isn't quite as good as a deer's nose!!! My thought is that if they can smell the Thermacell, they can smell you.
