they can ruin your hunt or even your whole trip. Most of the animals I like to hunt inhabit some of the worst mosquito infested areas you can imagine. I will not hunt without my Thermacell! Now I have the ease of using the 12 hour Thermacell Max Life Mosquito Repellent Mats and also the Scout Mosquito Repeller Lantern!

These mats last the same duration as the butane cartridges, so now you can change out both the mats and cartridges at the same time! Plus with the mats lasting 12 hours, generally you are set for an entire day of hunting! Use these mats in either your Thermacell units or the Lanterns, extending your protection out to a 15″ X 15′ area. The mats tend to stick out further than the old ones, but rest assured that they work great!

Carolina, I would ignite my Thermacell prior to even walking in to my stand, that way I was a step ahead of the mosquitoes. I have had people worry about the smell or small amount of smoke put out by the units, but I have never had a problem. In fact during the bear hunt, I had 1 curious bear that came 5 steps up the stand. I think he had previously used my stand as a bed! He never cared about the Thermacell at all. I also shot my bear the same night, at only 4 yards! I will be using Thermacell always!

Another product to protect you in the outdoors is the Scout Mosquito Repeller Lantern. I have used the Thermacell units for hunting for many years, so it made perfect sense to expand into the Scout lantern also. This lantern makes it easy to repel all those pesky mosquitoes, black flies, and other biting insect within a 15′ X 15′ area while camping or relaxing.

This lantern not only repels pesks, but provides 220 lumens of bright light for up to 10 hours on 4 AA batteries. The lantern can take the standard 4 hour mosquito repellent mats or the newer 12 Hour Max Life Mosquito Repellent Mats. Being a lantern, this unit can free stand on flat surface or hang from the convenient carry handle.

The MSRP of the 12 hour Max Life Mosquito Repellent Refill Packs: 4 butane cartridges and 4 Max Life 12 hour Mosquito Repellent Mats, are $20.99. To purchase, or to get more information, go to The MSRP of the Scout Lantern is a reasonable $39.99 and is available for purchase at The

units and refills are also found at most sporting retail stores and Walmart.

Whether you are hunting, fishing, camping, or just spending time outdoors, get the protection from mosquitoes, black flies, and other flying insects without the use of spray on insect repellents. Thermacells are a must for me!
