How it works


Fuel-Powered Thermacell Mosquito Repellent devices repel mosquitoes by creating a 15-foot mosquito protection zone. Thermacell’s zone repellent technology eliminates the need for messy lotions or sprays, stopping mosquitoes before they can bother or bite you.

Powered by a fuel cartridge that lasts up to 12 hours and repellent mats that last up to 4 hours each – Thermacell provides mosquito protection from your backyard to the backcountry with no electricity needed.

This fuel-powered Thermacell technology uses heat activated repellent to create an invisible, scent-free, zone of protection from mosquitoes. The devices are powered by a small fuel cartridge that provides the cordless, portable heat that is directed to a metal grill. A small mat saturated with repellent is inserted on top of the metal grill. Heat disperses the repellent from the mat into the air, creating the zone of protection.

This repellent, allethrin, is a synthetic copy of a natural repellent found in chrysanthemum plants.
