    It works well, even better if you follow the instruction to set it out a few minutes before you plan to be outside. It works best if you leave it out there by itself as in no people out there to attract mosquitos. Once a few mins has passed, the mosquitos have completely cleared out of the area. They clear out quick if there isnt anyone tempting them to stay. I also set it right outside my door while my dog is outside so that he doesn't carry mosquitos in on his body like he used to.

    After purchasing various types of Mosquito repellents, I finally found this Patio Shield from Thermacell . Easy to follow instructions so once I set it up outdoors and wait approximately 15 minutes. The mosquitoes disappeared. I noticed it works better on less windy days. I use it near pool on patio while barbecuing and at the park. It’s worth it!

    Works ok. Still getting bites but not as many? Not even that breezy. And I feel like I can taste the chemical but it’s better than when I spray myself with bug spay - I feel like I always breath it in no matter how hard I try.

    The mosquitoes have been relentless this season... until I started up my patio thermacell. This company has now earned my lifetime loyalty. This is the only product you need. Stop spraying yourself just to continue to get bitten. Start up your thermacell patio leave it outside for about 15 minutes and then join it to enjoy a beautiful summer night with no bites.

    Save your money, use bug spray. I thought this was some new way to repel mosquitoes, but it’s a small flame that melts repellent above it. Basically the equivalent of a small citronella candle.

    Pretty expensive for something that doesn't work. Maybe the mosquitos are built different in IL but they still feasted on me and my family during a backyard bbq.

    Can not stand up to the Florida mosquitoes. I had no problem setting it up and turning it on, but it wouldn’t stop the bugs. I watched multiple mosquitoes land on me while I sat right next to the repellent.
