For such a small organism, mosquitoes are equipped with a lot of complex systems to locate their next meal. To escape their detection:
Don’t breathe: Receptors on their antennae can detect the carbon dioxide released when we exhale from up to 75 feet away.
Don’t sweat: They discern the presence of octenol, a chemical released in human sweat.
Stay cool: Heat sensors around the mosquito’s mouth can detect the warmth of your body – and help them locate the best capillaries for tapping.
Since you can’t hold your breath forever, you should know that nature produces a number of natural, effective insect repellents. In fact, the repellent used in Thermacell products is a synthetic form of a chemical that occurs naturally in chrysanthemum flowers. It won’t harm humans or pets — and tests by universities and government agencies have shown Thermacell is up to 96% effective in repelling mosquitoes.

I've sat on my patio with several friends and family and was the only one being bit by mosquitos. They love me, I hate them. I bought this thing for bow hunting and for around the house. It is absolutely amazing and I cant speak highly enough about it.


Cant beat the job it does for bug control.

This works better then any insect spray, its amazing how you dont realize its working until you turn it off, One unit covers a area big enough for me and my wife while hiking or fishing within about a 8 to 10 foot area. We rarely notice any insects at all. Only drawbacks is buying refills and fuel. But to me its worth it. one fuel cell and refill last most of the day for us. The holster that is optional is very handy as the unit can get warm and its nice to be able to clip it on your belt or pack with the holster. My father liked it so much for fishing on the boat, he bought them for gifts for all his fishing buddies.


Best money I ever spent

I am an avid hiker. I go out on trails with my dog about 5 nights a week. This year the bugs were so out of control! I bought misquito repellent bracelets and a bug screen to wear over my head. Nothing really worked ... Until this! I LOVE the Thermacell !!! I use it hiking, while doing yard work, relaxing in the hammock. It makes my outdoor experiences virtually bug free! I use the holster when I'm walking - hiking or mowing. I also use the clip on the back of the holster to attach it to our hammock. I recommend buying the holster and extra cartridges and pads to go with it. The people who are with you - as long as they are within the same area as you are, will benefit from it too. Use it during parties or cookouts.


Great device, but be sure to have refills on hand

This device actually works. I was a skeptic, but it really does work to ward off mosquitos. The only downside is the thing needs refills of the blue pads, about every 4 hours, and refills on the butane cartridge about 10 hours or so. If you don't have the extra refills on hand, it's no use at all. I just bought it this season, so I don't know if it will continue to start up reliably over time. If the device still starts up (it ignites a micro-sized flame to heat the metal plate) without any trouble after I dig it out of winter storage next year, THEN I will be mightily impressed!


Truly a Great Product

I was a bit skeptical to buy this at first for a couple of reasons. First I wasn't sure I believed it would work. Second I felt that I would be replacing the cartridges a lot. It is a fantastic product and REALLY does work. I also bought the replacement cartridges with it and that was a smart idea. If you are just using this to put outside and plan on sitting around for the evening, you will get about two solid uses out of the blue scent pads. The butane will last for probably 4 or 5 times. It takes a little bit to get going, so definitely turn it on and set it outside for a little before you go outside. I liked this so much that I ended up buying one for my Dad for Fathers Day.
