Therma cell ??
« on: May 06, 2019, 05:42:33 PM »
Is anyone using Therma cells? Do they work? Are they quiet?
Thanks!

Love mine. Work awesome.  Not loud at all.  Turkey huntibg great but if your elk or deer hunting I would  get the earth scent because the itndoes smell.

I use them all the time.  They work great, don't make noise.  I use them while bear hunting and haven't noticed scent issues

They work for me. Seems to work best if you have a couple.

Used them in Virginia hog hunting.  Would get eaten alive without them.  No bugs at all with them.  They are awesome.

Love them.  I bought one for my bear hunt in Alaska years ago and it worked awesome. I use them camping and at archery shoots as well.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

I've seen a couple of these things in action and they only work if the thermals are pushing the "bug b gone" essence in your direction.  That said, with the thermals pushing that same essence (essentially airborne pesticide), by/through your stinky self  :rolleyes:, and is subsequently moving in the direction of where any close target game are moving so they can get your scent.  Just saying  ;)

Agree with everyone here, they work great! Its best with no wind, but in a slight breeze just put the unit slightly upwind of you.

I did have an issue with one at high elevation, but apparently the regular units aren't meant for above 4,500 feet. They make a new model that can go higher now.

Have 4 of them but forget to use them since bugs don't bite me much but the wife won't sit in the backyard without one running.  Works great!

Used them in my deer stand for the past few years and never had an issue with them. :twocents:

Yep.  I typically have one strapped to my pack while in the woods for various scouting, backpacking, and hunting trips June through September.

They have earth scented pads you can buy for scent control

I'll agree with all the positive feedback, it's one of the few products that actually works like it says it will. Apparently I have sweet blood and the bugs love me, so I always have one when I'm fishing, hunting, hiking, camping, kayaking, atv-ing or just hanging out on the patio. Worth every penny IMO
