Shows $0 at a bunch of stores and $39.98 for the stores sold out in Winnipeg.
Picking up an order later so I'll check it out.

Possible YMMV?

How are these anyway ? Anyone used them before?
I know Canadian Tire recently had a different unit on sale for $24.99 from $49.99 or so.

Feedback would be appreciated as I've been wanting to get something for the patio.

Thanks

I too would like to know if thermocell works for a patio. I live in Durham so it gets pretty buggy at night in the summer.

Thermacells work GREAT!

As always, search the forums (or the web) when you have questions, as Thermacell's have been discussed to death so many times.

I also live in Durham with my backyard patio backing onto a forest and trust me these work. Give it 5 mins to heat up and it'll be completely mosquito free.

Scanning $36 in Winnipeg polo location.

Refused to price match their own stores. Offered me $10 off each one if I buy 5.

Which version do you have? The one posted, patio or radius?

Kinda sidetracking here but does anyone have a solution or tech idea that could get rid of flies?

There was a thread from Walmart where they were prices at $10-$20. Refills were like $14.

I can’t find the thread though

So I bought the patio one and took it up to Muskoka last weekend fires it up and latched it on my bag. I still gotten eaten alive, was I using it wrong or what? I hear the butane burning and the top was hot too. Any ideas? Is the Patio one not ment for hiking? Please and thanks in advance!

If there's a good enough breeze it won't be as effective, you're likely better off wearing promethrin treated clothing (Mark's sells the Windriver No Fly Zone clothing line) to try and keep the skeeters off of you.

Thermacell works the best when there is little to no wind and while you are in one spot.

We’re at a Provincial Park and a friend brought it over so no buyer bias here, no breeze, didn’t noticeably work.

For going camping I would recommend the backpacker version. A lot smaller and adding in the butane/propane fuel canisters lastest a lot longer and cheaper than the patio fuels. I have both - patio and backers and I prefer the backpacker.

We took it to Algonquin and we were fine. But then again we had 2 backpackers and 1 patio running to cover the large area.

Also a good idea to stock a few Marks GC's from a CT sale and wait for the end of season clearance event to get them a better price

They work really good but got knows what chemicals you are inhaling with them, the smoke they give off smells like a drug lab.
