Being from Wisconsin, a state where the mosquito is jokingly referred to as our “State Bird”, I was compelled to put the ThermaCELL® Mosquito Repellent product to the test.
Record spring and summer rains this year produced ideal conditions for a healthy crop of mosquitoes and generated an overpopulation of the pesky critters throughout the state. At a recent trip to our cabin in central Wisconsin, I was literally swarmed by mosquitoes as I exited my car. I quickly reached for the ThermaCELL® unit to test its effectiveness.
Each ThermaCELL® Mosquito Repellent package contains:
Because they are odor free, provide insect protection (including black flies) for a 15 foot diameter area and can last for up to 12 hours, they’re ideal for any outdoor activity where mosquitoes and biting flies can be a problem. They’re a perfect solution for turkey, bear and deer hunters and also for fisherman, either on boat or on shore, who encounter the pesky biters.
I was honestly skeptical that this device would give adequate protection from the abundant and nasty mosquitoes I’d just encountered.
Fifteen minutes later I returned and was astonished at its effectiveness. I stood within 5 feet of the unit for 10 minutes and had just one mosquito land on my leg. I was seriously amazed at its protection, but to further convince myself, I walked to the other side of our cabin, roughly 50 yards away, just to double check. I was again immediately covered by the buzzing and biting insects. As I flailed and swatted them away, I returned to the mosquito free “zone of safety” and saw for myself how effective the ThermaCELL® Mosquito Repellent device was. The mosquitoes were nonexistent near the ThermaCELL® unit.
Compact, inexpensive and lightweight, I’d definitely recommend the ThermaCELL® Mosquito Repellent device for other sportsmen and women who need protection outdoors. In fact, I’d recommend purchasing a couple; one for your hunting fanny pack and one for your boat, to ensure an enjoyable mosquito-free outing.
