permethrin is not effective on mosquitoes in my experience
experienced hunters know its not just a bushy white tail, its a big middle finger.

nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught

I posted this back in December.. Thought I’d help again because my experience is it works as well as a new pad.
Just buy “Gordon's® Permethrin-10 Livestock & Premise Spray” ( you can get it at Tractor Supply for around $8 ) and mix it one part Permethrin to six parts distilled water.

There are a couple ways to recharge the pads
1st – like the video Vermin93 can put it in an eye dropper (visine bottle) or similar drop application type bottle. Recharges your Thermacell pad for use.
An 8oz bottle from Tractor Supply, at six to one mix ratio and using 4 drops maximum per pad refill, should last you about 1,200-1,400 refills. ( lol.. NOT BAD!!)

2nd - As I'm sure you know, when you use up the effective solution on a new Thermacell pad, it turns white. To recharge this feature, I just use food coloring. (I use yellow, green, even pink ( lol ) instead of blue) What I do is make up a batch in a small jar ( like a baby food jar or similar type ) with 1 tablespoon permethrin, 6 tablespoons distilled water and just a few drops of food color. Then soak your used pads. They will recharge and re-color..

Hope this helps
