    I'll try the dryer sheet thing... Which brand or don't it matter ?

    I have already purchased the ThermaCell and bought 3 refill kits and extra butane tubes so I would be crazy not to stick with it. And besides I think you look kinda weird with those pretty little scented sheets hangin out of your pocket.

    Wow, you really drew the line in the sand on that one....
    Good for you.

    Now, we need to figure out a cheap way of refilling those canisters and recharge the chemical pads...

    We can put our heads together and figure it out...

    We could cut up the dryer sheets to use, that way everyone is happy.

    As long as I am happy thats all that matters to me.

    Ok Ron I have been thinking about the butane. If I take a cartridge and drill the bottom and thread with some teflon tape on it a filling insert like is on some butane lighters into it. Then I can buy the butane canister refills much cheaper. As for the pads I'll leave that up to you.

    The OFF candle lantern pads have the same exact active ingredient in them as the thermacell pads... The problem is that the refills cost the same amount as the thermacell refills... 3 pads and 3 candles or 1 butane canister for $6 at Walgreens.

    I played around with my first empty butane canister last night and short of doing a big plastic transplant of some kind I cannot figure out how to refill those things. I was hoping you could somehow refill it through the top where the O rings are but to no avail. I had a few beers in the process so I stopped messing with it after about an hour so I would not blow myself up...

    I'll have to wait until I empty another canister to try refilling it.

    I've used dryer sheets to keep these south georgia gnats at bay but don't know 'bout skeeters and such. I think it works pretty good. Maybe we could get some Tinks #69 scented dryer sheets.....

    Will this thermacell thingy work on our gnats down here in the deep south?

    I'm not sure about the gnats as I do not spend much time in the deep south. But for $23 I would give it a try.
