Thermacell Mosquito Repellent

Thermacell Mosquito Repellent

ThermaCELL Mosquito Repellent Appliances are powered by a single butane cartridge. Butane provides the cordless, portable heat that activates the patented devices.

The heat generated by the butane cartridge is directed to a metal grill that is part of the design of the Appliance. A small mat, saturated with repellent, sits on top of the metal grill. Heat vaporizes the repellent, allowing it to rise into the air.

The repellent is allethrin, a copy of a repellent that naturally occurs in chrysanthemum flowers. It repels up to 98 percent of mosquitoes, black flies, and no-see-ums, and will not harm humans or pets. Within minutes after turning on the Appliance, the repellent creates a 15 by 15-foot (225 square-foot) mosquito-free zone, the size of an average deck, patio, or campsite.

We are currently offering free refill worth £4.99 with every handheld you buy for £18.99.
