How it Works:

  • ThermaCELL uses revolutionary, patented technology to dispense a small amount of repellent into the air over a long period of time.
  • ThermaCELL is powered by an iso-butane cartridge which provides the cordless, portable heat necessary to operate the device (batteries are not needed).
  • It directs the heat to a metal grill.
  • A mat saturated with Allethrin, a copy of a naturally occurring insecticide found in chrysanthemum flowers, is placed on top of the metal grill.
  • The heat generated by the butane cartridge vaporizes the repellent allowing it to rise into the air, creating a 15 x 15 ft (225 sq ft)
  • "Mosquito-Free-Zone" in minutes.
  • The repellent is very unpleasant to mosquitoes, but when used as directed, will not harm humans or pets.
