Time in the field no longer has to include swatting bugs or messing with smelly sprays, greasy lotions or cumbersome netting. ThermaCELL®, the unique butane-operated mosquito repellent system, is the perfect hunting companion-small, portable and highly-effective, and it fits nicely into a pack or vest pocket.

ThermaCELL creates an odorless 15 x 15-foot comfort zone, which offers up to 98% effective protection against mosquitoes and other biting insects. With the click of a button, ThermaCELL is on and repelling insects by creating a comfort zone in under 10 minutes.

The unit operates on a single butane cartridge, which heats a mat releasing allethrin, an insect repellent that is a synthetic copy of a natural insecticide found in chrysanthemum flowers. Each mat contains enough repellent for four hours of protection and each butane cartridge will operate the unit for 12 hours.

Used by professionals around the world, including the U.S. Army in Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan, as well as many well-known names in the hunting industry, ThermaCELL is a must have. "ThermaCELL is one product that will change the way you hunt," said Huntin’ the World Southern Style co-host Hal Schaffer. "It really is the most innovative product to be introduced to the hunting market in the last 20-years."

ThermaCELL has been evaluated and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for safety and effectiveness. The unit is available in Olive or Grey, Woodland Camouflage, and TEAM REALTREE® version in REALTREE Hardwoods Green HD camouflage. MSRP for the unit is $21.99 for Olive or Grey, $24.99 for Woodland, and $29.99 for TEAM REALTREE. The ThermaCELL unit measures 7.5" x 3" x 1.5" at the top, and 7.5" x 1.5" x 1.5" at the bottom. It weighs a mere 6.4 ounces with a full butane cartridge.

Now available, Earth Scent refills. Utilizing the same highly effective mosquito repellent as the original ThermaCELL unscented mats, the new Earth Scent also emits the smell of musky dirt and decaying leaves -- a convincing scent designed to mask human odors and linger continuously for up to four hours per mat. The ThermaCELL Earth Scent mosquito repellent refill kit includes one butane cartridge, three Earth Scent mosquito repellent refill mats and MSRP is $6.99.

ThermaCELL, a division of The Schawbel Corporation of Bedford, Massachusetts, utilizes patented technology to create cordless, portable appliances powered by replaceable butane cartridges.
