Works well for keeping bugs away, as long as the wind isn't too strong. That can be one of the major downside for these types of devices.
However, it is a great alternative to applying a bunch of bug spray on your skin. My wife doesn't like using bug spray (have you seen what DEET does to plastic?!). So this was a great alternative for her.
I still carry bug spray with me if needed (keep wood ticks off), but the Thermacell is the first line of defense for gnats, mosquitoes and flies.
Wonderful product for bug intense areas. My father used it on a recent fishing trip in Northern Michigan and recommended it to me, as I just moved to Florida and I am not used to be attacked by mosquitos. It takes only a couple of minutes to start working and then can keep you comfortable throughout dinner. Place on the ground, under the table (no table space taken up by candles, and no citronella smell mixing with your dinner). This will not work for a walk - as it needs to be in a stable place. It will work for certain yard work, such as gardening, if you are moving slowly and basically work in one 15x15 foot area. We have also used it while organizing our garage, and for building an outdoor structure. I love its small size and mobility.
I have some sort of mosquito attractant DNA, I think. They love me. I can wear OFF or other bug sprays, and I think it's just like putting mustard on a burger, they eat more!! So, I was really hoping this would work, after seeing it posted on a Pop Up Camper group on Facebook. I love whomever posted about it, 'cause this thing WORKS!!! Went camping in a mosquito infested state park. I did not get a single bite. That is unheard of for me!! We camped a whole weekend, spending the majority of the day outside, and this thing rocked!!! To use it, there's a small bottle of butane you screw into the end of the unit. Then, you remove one of the insecticide pads from its sealed package, and slide it under the plastic grill. Turn the unit on, hit the button a couple of times to get the striker to hit and start the flame. It puts off a little heat, and a little "smoke" and very little smell. Starts working in seconds, and each pad lasts about 3 hours. SO AWESOME. We also...
