With the arrival of summer begins the season of recreation in nature, but warm weather also contributes to the vital activity of annoying insects. Mosquitoes are able to spoil their presence going to the forest or on the beach, and their opposite buzz interfers to sleep at night. People invented many different drugs to combat bloodsuckers, some of them scare or kill insects, others – no. Most recently, the market received a new American-made-repellent device, which quickly gained popularity from dacifics and travelers – Thermacell from Komarov.
The American apparatus against insects is a unique protection against bites throughout the travel or rest. The principle of action of the device is the same as in conventional fumigators – heating the replaceable plate, it exudes the smell unpleasant for pests. Thermacell mechanism is innovative, because it does not require connecting to the outlet, unlike traditional devices. Thanks to the new design, the fumigator works perfectly outdoors, protecting people within a radius of 20 sq.M.
Initially, the anti-mosquito device was created for the needs of the American army – he defended the military not only from mosquitoes, but also from ticks, mosquitoes, midges and fleas. To the tool become part of the equipment, it should have answered harsh requirements, therefore was subjected to a large number of tests.
Thermacell was repeatedly tested in action by military people, the design of the device – the fumigator is rather similar to some touchscreen device for tracking enemies than a mosquito remedy. When the device got on store shelves, he very quickly received recognition from tourists, hunters, fishermen and relax lovers in nature.
The repeller is produced in 2 versions: an active holiday design resembles a cell phone, for installation on the cottage – a table lamp. Product package includes 3 plates and 1 gas cartridge. There is an accessory in the form of a cover or a bag that allows you to attach a repeller on the belt or to a backpack.
The thermacll device is completely simple: a gas container is inserted into the housing, and under the grille – plate with gel or insecticide. The gas cartridge is intended to heat the plate soaked in poison. After you turn on the device, the heating mechanism will start, and insecticidal connections will be released into the air. The repeller does not need an additional power supply in the form of batteries or batteries – in nature it works from its own energy.
The portable device is effectively fighting insects for 12 hours, then you need to change the cartridge. The plate during continuous operation exhausts its insecticide after 4 hours. Toxic compounds for insects continue to be allocated depending on the heating temperature, Thermacell independently controls the amount of emission of poison.
Insecticide, which are impregnated by the thermacell plates, does not pose a danger to a person – it is toxic only for insects. When the mosquitoes fall within the radius of the means, the chemical penetrates their body through the respiratory system or seeps through the chitinous cover. Inhaling a small number of repellent, pests are scared and flew away, but if the smell does not force them to retreat, a large amount of poison will lead to paralysis and inevitable death.
A variety of dischargers
Thermacell is developing 2 main types of mosquito devices – mobile and stationary. The first are intended for those who are constantly moving on the journey, and the second – for installation in the country or in camping. Consider Read more each type of mosquito unit.
For outdoor activities
Fans of active movement will be inconvenient to carry massive fumigators with them, various spirals, traps and smoke checkers are inappropriate, because they do not allow moving. Previously, the only rescue for travelers was sprays from mosquitoes, but they often caused allergies. The appearance of the device Thermacell significantly simplified the life of outdoor activities.
Externally, the device resembles a small remote control with a switch and gas content sensor in the cartridge. The standard THERMACELL MR-300 REPELLER model is available in several colors – olive, bright green and black. And sometimes there are apparatuses of orange or dark green, even less often – camouflage colors. The housing of the portable fumigator is made of impact-resistant polystyrene, so even if the device falls or hit, it will remain a whole.
An important advantage for travelers is the compactness and mass of the device – its weight is only 200 g, and the size – 19.3×7,4×4.6 cm.
The flagship of the anti-mosquito mechanism is the MR-450 REPELLER – this black machine is different from other models of an unusual ergonomic design. And he also has a special embedded clip, allowing you to conveniently fasten the device to the belt or backpack. The flagship is equipped with an additional indicator that notifies the owner that it is included. Additional feature will not allow you to forget to turn off the repeller or change the gas sprinkler on time.
A convenient portable apparatus works without noise and smell, does not highlight smoke and does not dock the owner. Active insecticidal substance, which is contained in the thermacll plates, is alleletin. The component in its composition is very similar to natural insecticide highlighted by chrysanthemums. When you turn on the mechanism, the piezoejig is triggered inside the case – it lights the butane (gas produced by the cartridge) and begins to slowly heat the plate.

To take with you within walking trip, such a device is inconvenient – its weight is about 1 kg, and the size does not allow to hide the device in the backpack. In a gazebo or camp, Outdoor Lantern can not serve as a fumigator, but also additional lighting – the mechanism is equipped with a light bulb with two brightness modes.
For minimalist lovers, there is another stationary fumigator model – Thermacell Halo Mini Repeller.
