I guess you will never find a product that has 100% approval, even Thermacall.

On one side of my parent's place, is a low and flat creek bottom. In rainy years (such as this one) it has lots of standing water that skeeters find a haven to. Those years are especially bad for getting "ate up" by them. I've been there before when the woods where just a constant "hummmm" where you could hear them by the millions; and in some cases, you could look up into the sky and just see little dark clouds of them. It reminds me of seeing them on TV when they would be in Canada or Alaska on bear hunts. I've been in those woods many days and came out looking like I had chicken pox all over again from the skeeter bites. Since finding the Thermacell, it's something that rarely leaves the belt side while visiting over there or going to work on stands. You've got to have it on even while sitting at a picnic table or something in their yard in the evenings, or the skeeters just wont leave you alone.

I have. As a matter of fact I have used it in a treestand, on the deck at supper time, in the backyard while working on a boat, dove hunting, etc. I also traded it in once for a new one. I understood you had to see the flame lit for it to work. In my opinion you couldn't give me one. I haven't ever really had trouble with mosquitoes anyways while hunting, but I tried it a couple times with clothes that were washed a couple of times, no permanone spray, and just the thermacell, won't do that again. It is not that big a deal, but I spray all my clothing and hats well with permanone and then let them completely dry and long before thermacell ever came out I haven't had trouble with mosquitoes. I got it more for camping, working outside in the summer and I burn the mosquitoe repelling candles because the thermacell doesn't work. Sorry I bashed the world's most favorite product, but I did and will again. I tell anyone who asks me that everyone but me thinks it is a great product.

Several friends who swear by it have gottnen out the thermacell out at a crawfish boil (my brother has one or 2 every spring) and they just say "well it works while I am hunting". I think it almost attracts mosquitoes. The flame was lit. Happened more than once.

I use permenone/ permethrine as well on my clothes . It Keeps ticks off my clothes , but doesn't keep skeeters off my face or exposed skin. You tend to disagree with most everyone on this post , so I won't argue with you . It really makes no difference to me if it doesnt work for you , as long as it works for me and the 98% of others who use one .

I completely agree Radar
Permethrin works great on clothes but not so great where its not at
Therma cell Works great imo
You all should try Off's cilp on Mosquito repellent with the fan i really liked it and think it worked as good as my thermacell while hunting

Therma cell works good for me. It does take about 15 minutes to really take full affect.

I only have just over 20 years with Permanone and have almost never had a problem with mosquitoes while bowhunting and I would guess I hunt more than most anyone, no matter the weather. The mosquitoes do not bother my exposed skin when my clothes are sprayed. I was really hoping the thermacell would work more for work around the house but no luck there.

I also have about 20 years experience with permethrin and I have never seen it affect mosquitoes. go figure
