    Thermacell portable mosquito repellent

    Iíve tried and liked using permethrin on my hammock, but has anyone used this thermacell portable repellent? Seems expensive to maintain and Iím wondering how much of it you are in inhaling?

    Thermacells are worth their weight in gold.

    I’ve used the Thermacell lantern a few times last year. It’s good for hanging from a hiking pole in porch mode amd actually provides some nice light too. I find it works pretty well but wonder about cost-effectiveness as the blue inserts last I think about 4 hours.

    Little update... Iíd say itís working pretty well. Itís 75į at dusk and rained all afternoon. Mosquitoes really love me, and though Iíve seen a few flying around, maybe two have landed on me for only a second. I think I would still use something else to go with it, but there was a very noticeable difference.

    Iím thinking the same thing. I want something I can use all the time at home. I think these would still be great for a weekend trip though. I might look into some yard spay too.

    Ive used them in the swamps of Ga for years. They work very well. About 12 hrs on the fuel and 4 on the pad.
    I still use spray when Im mobile but for around camp they are great. Cost is a factor but when you consider
    the savings on insect repellant the cost is mitigated a little. I use the one that is about 8" long and 3" wide.
    I use the accessory pouch and attach it to my pack.

    I believe I have read that it is better for you health wise than covering your skin with repellants.
