Bug Season: Favorite Repellants

Recommended Posts

We''ve used citronella candles, mosquito coils, DEET sprays, etc.

Other than a roaring campfire, none of them are pleasant.

I saw this one (the thermacell) mentioned on another forum:

 

Has anyone tried it? I'm curious to hear from a friend that it works.

Hi, Sherry,

 

I've had one for a couple of years now and it works fairly well. The biggest limitation is the same as with candles, coils, etc: staying within the "cloud" of protection. It's more convenient than a coil and doesn't smell as bad, but refills are more expensive. I find its best use to be in keeping that one pesky mosquito out of my Ollie in the evening. For outdoor use, an array of candles is less expensive.

 

Hope this helps,

Aubrey

:D I think the refills are actually butane. One on each end of a picnic table will protect about 8 folks if they stay close. One inside an Oliver will work great! Alas, 2-3 in the "Mothership"........ ;)
