    Anyone who doesn't have a Thermocell is making a mistake or at least going through hell dealing with bugs over $25. Thermocells are the cheapest most convenient insurance against bugs you can find. Buy one.

    Thermacell is an early season must, especially if there's a rainy hot day because the skeeters will be out. I've never had any issues.

    I was scouting 2 nights ago, I realized after the fact that I forgot my thermacell. Bugs didn't seem that bad so I was quickly distracted. Well let me tell u, 9 bites my wife counted later I realized again how well it works. That never happens !

    I've used on several times, especially during the early season. I've had many deer come by. I've never noticed an issue with them acting alarmed.

    Mine is always with me WHILE hunting. I use it up to the first good frost.. But I am no scent control guru anyways. Hunt smart and use the wind to advantage and you'll be OK.

    I've never had a issue using one. With this being said I am going to try a Insect Repelling band and see how that works. This way one less thing I have to carry out in the woods if it works.

    It's either run the thermocell or get busted swatting mosquitoes down here in Louisiana.
