Mosquitos - Thermacell

7 posts in this topic

I was drove from the woods tonight by hoards of mosquitos. I immediately went to gander mountain and bought one of those thermacell mosquito orderless repellent things. For those of you that don't know what they are, they heat up mosquito repellent with a small butane cartridge. I have heard good things about them so I thought I would give it a try. I was just wondering what your guys thoughts are and if you have used them before.

On calm days, they are miraculous.

They deffintily work great when the wind is calm. I remember the first couple times I used mine. Thought the mosquitos were not out. About 3 minutes after shutting it off they were attacking me. Thinking they just came out I started it up. Again not a mosquito they do really work great!

This is what I need to hear after coming in early from my hunt because of those pesky things. I was so pissed I bought it on impulse and I am glad that you have had luck with it, hopefully I do.

I read great things about it on an archery board and bought one. I'll be using it in my ground blind this weekend.

I was glad I had on my BugTamer suit last night.

Now if they would just have pockets in the pants.

I like to use my Thermacell in my popup blind.

      So how do you guys go about finding fish when you go out...Do you drive around until you mark fish or big schools of smelt then troll that area?? I know I've read about using a site that shows Superiors water temps also....I'm thinking of trying it this weekend if I get the boat ready in time and the weather is ok.
