Customer Reviews

I am got tired of all those new gadgets and repellents that appear on the market and promise to be 100% effective and safe. That’s why I usually do not try advertisements, just take something new and test it in the woods. I like hiking and hunting, in Canada there are lots of places for this, and the only thing that annoys me is the bugs. There are a lot of them in spring and summer time! It’s impossible to concentrate on any process when a hundred of bugs are buzzing around and biting you in all possible places. It’s impossible even to protect the skin– the bugs reach skin easily even through the clothes. When you start moving to slap those insects or just to scare them away, hunting is completely spoilt. I went to a new hunting venue at the end of the spring and had my new ThermaCell in the backpack. There was completely unbearable to stay there at night, so I fired it up and was amazed by the result it made! It took about a couple of minutes for all bugs around to disappear. There were no mosquitoes around for about 4 hours, just like it is said in the description to ThermaCell. My buddies were impressed in the same way – we all thought our dream will never come true. Now I stopped on using ThermaCell, finally I found the repellent that really works in the woods.

Easy to recharge, a set of spare mats and cartridges – I use them on a few ThermaCell units when we spend evenings outdoor having bbq or dinner. That works fine for us. It’s fairly the best thing I ever tried!
