I just ordered a whole case of replacement bottles and pads. I hunted every day since the opener, and haven't gotten a single bite.
Last season I bought one of the big refill packs. Something like 3 or 4 bottles and a whole stack of replacement cards. I've only used 2 bottles since I bought it. Seems to sip on the butane pretty slowly.

Amen. Used my thermacell for the first time this weekend and will not go in the woods again without it. The walk from the stand to the 4-wheeler, I thought I was going to get carried away, but in the stand not a mosquito around. Definitely worth the money!!!

I was so mad this afternoon when I could not find mine. I hunted anyway without it and quit after a half hour because I was just giving blood. I think it is in my turkey vest from last season,,,but I will not go out again without it!

I like to use the 98.11% deet Sportsmen spray. It is only $4.87 a bottle, and it works beautifully. I hunted last week, and didn't have one bug land on me.
Yeah, the deet works great too...BUT STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN and you have to get that stuff all over you which if you put it on your skin, it clogs your pores and makes you way hotter in these early season hunts. But you are right, it does work.

I love the thing, had deer all around the tree the stand is on, behind infront, never winded it, or it didn't alarm them. No skeeters either. But for some reason it really uses the butane, like one refill a day, and thats like 6 hours or so of hunting. I went yesterday afternoon, about 3 hours and it's half empty, do ya'lls use that much??

Mine uses very little butane. I used it one day for about 8 hours straight and it might have used 1/4 of a bottle.

mine uses very little butane. maybe yours is defective. i would email the compnay and maybe they will send you a new one. i have had good luck by contacting manufacturers when i have a problem with thier product. they like to know that stuff too.

Have had my thermacell for 4 or 5 years, love it.
Started a 4.5 day hunt wed evening and the skeeters were real bad, luckily I had the thermacell and didnt get a bite one once it kicked in. Second evening the striker on the thermacell quit working:mad:, skeeters tore me up. Still have welts on my neck from getting bit so much. Nearest wal-mart is probably 60 miles away so toughed it out the rest of the week. Tried using a lighter to start the thermacell but didnt work. My next trip to walmart I am going to buy 2 thermacells so I have a backup.:eek:
