Details

ThermaCELL is the only butane-operated mosquito repellent system that is also a cover scent, offering concealment in the spring and early fall when mosquitoes are at their worst. This system creates a 15' x 15' area of protection that is up to 98% effective against mosquitoes and other biting insects.

The ThermaCELL Olive Green appliance operates on a single butane cartridge, that heats a mat and releases allethrin, a synthetic copy of a naturally occurring insect repellent. Each mat contains enough repellent for four hours of protection, and each butane cartridge will operate the unit for 12 hours.

ThermaCELL appliances are for outdoor use only.

Note: Must be shipped via ground, no air shipments and NO SHIPPING TO Hawaii, Alaska, or Puerto Rico, sorry.

ThermaCELL Mosquito Repellent Appliance Instructions

  1. Remove one ThermaCELL Mosquito Repellent mat from wrapper. One mat lasts up to 4 hours. Mat turns from pale blue to white when active ingredient has been exhausted.

  2. Make sure the 'On/Off' switch on the appliance is in the 'Off' position. Insert the mat under the appliance's black grill. To change mats, slide the 'On/Off' switch to 'Off' and allow the appliance to cool completely. Push the used mat out by inserting a fresh one.

  3. Remove the appliance cover and butane cartridge cap.

  4. Screw the cartridge into the opening of the appliance. Make sure the cartridge is fully inserted by turning it clockwise until it stops. Replace the appliance cover. One ThermaCell butane cartridge lasts 8 to 12 hours. If your appliance fails to heat, it may be out of fuel. Check the fuel level by holding the appliance vertically and looking at the fuel gauge on the bottom. You can see the amount of butane in the cartridge. Replace if empty.

  5. Slide the 'On/Off'switch to the 'On' position; the butane gas will begin to flow.

  6. Wait approximately 5-10 seconds then depress the start button three to five times in rapid succession.

  7. To verify the appliance is operating, pick it up and check the lens on the end of the appliance. The light at the end of the appliance glows when the appliance is heating. If the light is not glowing, check to make sure the appliance is 'On' and the cartridge is completely screwed into place; then once again depress the start button three to five times in rapid succession. Check to make sure the light is glowing.

  8. Place the appliance on a flat, stable area with the grill side facing up. Do not touch the grill; it will be hot after a couple of minutes. When finished using the appliance, slide the 'On/Off' switch to the 'Off' position, and allow the appliance to cool completely. Appliance is now ready for storage.

  • What is the shelf life of the pads? They lose 5% effectiveness every 10 years.
  • Where can customers get LED replacement lights? You can''t replace the bulbs.

The most effective mosquito repellant I have ever owned. I bought quite a few of these units so that visitors who come can enjoy God's beautiful creation and not get eaten alive. I am hoping ThermaCell can develop a smaller but not less effective unit. I am hoping stronger lasting mats can be developed.

I've got both the ThermaCell lantern and the hand-held unit and love them both! I use the lantern around our patio and in the evening the light is great to add just enough for our gathering. The hand-held unit is great to take along on the boat or when traveling. These things really work!

I have the hand held olive green unit and I absolutely love it. I use in every situation whether I am camping, enjoying an evening in the back yard, or spending time around my horse. It works well in all three of these situations but I am most impressed with it when I use it around my horse. Last week I went over to ride and the mosquitoes and files were just terrible. They were literally swarming us. I did not want to use the Horses fly spray on her because it is not good to get on me because of the chemicals and I was brushing her and riding her. I remembered that I had the ThermaCell in the car and I used it. It was amazing how you could literally see the bugs hover in a huge circle around the horse and I but not come close to us at all. I also clip this to my belt when I ride and get the same results. I like it also because there is no odor or noise!

I made a make-shift belt for my ThermaCell Appliance as I was heading outside to pull weeds. I worked for 3 hours and did not get one mosquito bite. This is a great option for repelling mosquitoes at close range. I will definitely be purchasing the ThermaCell Mosquito Repellent Appliance Holster with Clip from NorthlineExpress.com.

I had a party Memorial weekend and we had lots of rain leading up to the weekend. The mosquitoes are horrible this year and with the added rain it didnt help. We sat out by the fire and I had my Therma-Cell lantern on and none of us got bit by anything the entire night. I also took it to the lake with me, bugs were everywhere until I turned on my Therma-Cell. It is so easy to use and you dont have to worry about the smell and mess of a spray. I love this thing and I have recommended it to everyone that I know.

I used mine over the weekend I had taken it out on the patio to use it and set it down while I was preparing dinner on the grill. Usually I am getting swarmed by bees and mosquitoes while doing this. Luckily they didnt bother me at all. I also took my ThermaCell with me to my friends house and her yard is covered in those nasty jack pines which harbor mosquitoes very bad, her whole yard was covered in them and I was being eaten alive. So I went and grabbed my ThermaCell from the car, turned it on and set it at the table we were sitting at. After about 10 minutes the mosquitoes werent bothering us anymore and I hadnt gotten bitten anymore that evening. It worked wonderfully and I am considering purchasing the Lantern as well. My friend is now going to buy some too because it worked so well. I would recommend it for anyone. My only issue is remembering to turn it off. The butane and pads are very easy to replace you just have to remember to allow the unit to cool down prior to doing so. I give it an A++++++
