Not sure if you guys have used Sawyers repellant. I have used it two seasons now and it is great. You spray it on your cloths the night before(only spray on cloths not meant for skin). Once it dries it is good for three or four washes. I have watched mosquitoes fly around my clothes but they won't land. It is the craziest thing. Anyone else used it?

Thermacell for me too. Anybody that says they don't work, must not of had it turned on. A buddy of mine was talking about how bad the skeeters were last year where he was hunting. I told him to get a Thermacell unit. He said he already had one and it was a worthless piece of junk and didn't work. He said he would give it to me if I wanted it. So we got together when he came to help move a treestand of mine, and an evening hunt. I had my Thermacell on my belt and before we got in the woods, I turned it on, clicked the button to light the butane...and he stood there looking at me puzzled. Long story short here...he had been turning the unit ON but hadn't ever lit the butane...thus I guess it really was worthless in the way he was using it. After he saw how it worked and that we had no skeeters around us, he decided he would keep his unit. Now it's one of the best things ever to him.

They for sure aren't scent free though. But then again...what truly is scent free? Nothing. Everything has a smell to it. Even the scent free spray stuff has a smell to it to me LOL.

Mine has been turned on, butane lit, etc. and I can tell no difference. I do what Henke 3663 does, I spray my clothes and hat, let them dry and never get bothered and don't have to worry about carrying something else into the woods. I have tried it numerous times on the lake, windy and no wind days, absolutely no effect on the mosquitoes.

Me neither. I have used a Thermacell in the deepest, nastiest, fermented mud, stagnant water-filled swamps this part of the country can throw at you. Thermacells work. You can see a cloud of mosquitoes huddling just around you, but not get bite. They do, however, take a few minutes to take effect.

I would like to shake the man's hand who invented the Thermacell lol. Like one of those beer commercials "here's to you Mr Thermacell man"

Either you have a defective unit, no repellant mat, an old repellant mat, or the mosquito gods hate you. Not sure which \:\)

If you tried it on the lake and the boat was moving under the power of a trolling motor , that may have been the problem . They work better in a stationary position . Try one in a tree stand , then get back with us .....
