    Got Bugs?

    I live pretty much in the woods, and have various biting/stinging/harassing bugs that seem to like hanging out by the pool. But I have found a solution!

    I place 3 thermocells around the pool at equal distances, give them 5 minutes to do their magic, and not a bug to be found!

    OMG, I just looked it up on Google..those look great if they truly work? Do you have the small backpack sized one (x3) or which? Expensive?

    They are about $20 each, and work GREAT!
    I bow hunt (longbow), and would not be caught out in the woods around here without mine.
    The ones I have, I bought in Walmart... First, I bought one thinking "How good can these be?" ... in short order, I went back, and got 2 more thinking "always have a back-up, and a back up for the back-up"

    How long do the butane cartridges and scent pads last?

    The butane lasts 12 hours, and the pads last 4+ hrs each... but there IS a way to recharge BOTH ... youtube is your friend! ... since I bought my 1st one, I have bought 1 refill packet.
