The Thermacell Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller is a compact, yet effective device that drives mosquitoes from the immediate area surrounding a picnic table, campsite or backyard gathering area. The Patio Shield comes in five outdoor colors so, it can blend in well within most recreational spaces. The rock patio in my backyard is roughly 14 ft. by 20 ft. with shrubs and small trees around. So, it makes an excellent testing arena for a mosquito repeller. The repeller comes with easy-to-follow instructions, Assembly is straight-forward and requires no tools. Insert the fuel cartridge provided by spinning with fingers until it stops. The repellent mat comes out of the silver foil packaging and slides easily into the top of the repeller. The orange glow shows quickly and plainly through the site portal. The repeller operates silently to quickly clear the immediate area of pesky mosquitos. I discovered that the most efficient placement for the mosquito repeller is close to the center of activity and low to the ground with a windbreak nearby. The device turns off as easily as it turns on and cools down quickly. The Patio Shield does not repel Texas June Bugs.

Awesome alternative to citronella candle! I have used this thing many times so far this summer and have been very pleased with the results. This uses a canister with what seems to be lighter fluid or some other type of propellant to heat up a blue pad that is infused with a repellant for mosquitos. It works very effectively and while we were sitting out last night there was a decent pile of mosquitos on the table after an hour, so It definitely does its job. It also doesn't emit any bad smells so its a lot nicer in close proximity compared to a citronella candle. It is super easy to ignite and start using it and the blue pads that come with it (x3) turn white when they are used up, so I don't think they could have made this any easier to use. As far as how long it lasts, I have used the repeller for at-least three hours and the first pad is still blue and the propellent still looks full. So I'm getting all the use I wanted out of it!

I've only used this product twice so far, and I don't know if its a placebo, but maybe there are less mosquitoes around? Usually they attack me like crazy whenever I go to the backyard, but I haven't gotten bit yet! To be fair, its still cool and not yet hot, so maybe they are just not as active. Either way, I like how portable this mosquito repeller is. I brought it to my friends bbq last time and it was a nice item to place on the table instead of all the citronella candles we always use. It does get a bit hot though because it uses butane. It looks like the cartridge is refillable but I have not tried. The box comes with 3 mats and 1 cartridge (12 hours burn time). The mats are supposed to be replaced when it turns from blue to white. I did a quite search online and they sell it in bulk for about a dollar each depending on where you look. Also claims to last 12 hours. So overall, I do think its a good deal. Instructions are pretty easy to follow; the "orange glow light" isnt the most obvious, but you get used to it. Hey, anything to prevent the bugs from attacking me. I do enjoy the outdoor air so I am excited so sit outside more in the summer. Also, it doesnt look bad!

Very interesting product. You simply install the fuel cartridge and the “repellent mat”, then twist the bottom to light it. No matches or lighter required. To me, there is a certain amount of mystery to how this works. There is no visible flame but there is a slight orange glow inside the unit, visible through the “view hole” which is a small round window. What’s going on in there I don’t know, but clearly it creates a small amount of heat, causing the repellent to evaporate from the mat. The device gives off a barely visible vapor. There is no odor. It’s easy and clean to use. We’re not yet at peak mosquito season in New York but there are a few and they don’t seem to be bothering us while we’re using this.

The THERMACELL PATIO SHIELD MOSQUITO REPELLER IN RIVERBED is an updated version of another product I used to have. That product was lantern shaped and was powered by a candle, but with a similar blue patch that created the smoke repellent. The new Thermacell version is powered by a cartridge which I assume is butane. This is a sleek device that does not draw your attention. It is very easy to set up and use. Screw in the cartridge, slide the blue patch in the top. Twist the bottom part. Done. The blue patch is heated by the butane and releases a small amount of smoke and the repellent. I did not find the output to be noticeable. This device does seem to work well. I sat outside at dusk, when I would normally be mosquito food. I was able to enjoy a pleasant evening outside and returned with no bites. My only concern is the cost of the replacement cartridges and blue patches. But I am worth it.

I hate mosquitos. I’ve tried tiki torches, bug spray, coils, candles – all with varying degrees of success. This device is a new line of defense, named Thermacell Patio Shield. As the name implies, it uses butane fuel to produce a slight heat source which warms the top of the unit. Inserting a treated mat into the top grid, the warmed mat emits a vapor barrier that can spread in all direction up to fifteen feet. It is an attractive and compact unit that emits an almost unnoticeable smell/vapor to create the barrier. To use, turn and click the bottom base to ignite the butane, and then after about 10 minutes – you have good protection. So far it has worked well, but I haven’t tried it in a muggy summer night yet. The unit comes with a butane cylinder and three mats. The cylinder lasts up to 12 hours of use, and each mat up to 4 hours. Replacements are available at modest cost. This is an outdoor unit, although storage is best indoors away from the elements. Mat must be dry to be effective. Each mat transitions from a blue color to clear while in use – indicating it has reached the end of its useful life. To operate, first screw in the butane cylinder into the base, insert a mat in the top, and turn the lower ring to the on and start position. If the unit lights you can see a faint orange glow indicating it is working. The top does get warm – but not too hot, and you can get a slight wisp of white smoke, much less than coils or candles produce. The unit doesn’t require any batteries or cords. The unit is best effective if placed upwind of where you want protection, and stronger winds greatly diminish its effectiveness. This is an attractive unit, available in a variety of colors. It’s simple to use, wipes clean, and helps keep those nasty mosquitos away!

This comes shipped in a cardboard box measuring 9.25” X 6” X 9.25”. The box of the actual item is 4” (front to back and side to side) and 9” tall. The unit itself is 6.5” tall and 3.5” in diameter. It weighs 7.7 oz. It comes with a 1 year warranty (repair or replace) but if you register the product, they’ll make it a 2 year warranty. It is made in Thailand. The instructions are clear and easily followed and I like that they have a “Quick Start Guide” in addition to more detailed instructions. They include a phone number for questions. If you have a really good sense of smell, you might notice a barely-there citrus scent. Out of 4 of us at the table, only 1 of us could detect any scent. It makes NO noise at all but it does get hot to the touch when it’s in use. After you use it, you need to let it cool down (5-10 min in our cool weather) before you move it or store it. It’s really easy to put together: just drop the butane cylinder in and give the bottom a couple of clockwise turns and it’s in. A nice feature is that you can store the extra mats (it comes with 3 mats) inside the unit. When it’s on, the light (see photo) is just barely visible – it’s not bright enough to be annoying. You can see the coils under the repellent glowing. We noticed that it did work on mosquitoes and may well work on other bugs as well as when we had it going, there didn’t seem to be any bugs at all in the area.

I am so allergic to mosquito bites that I hate to even go outside when they are out. We used the Thermacell Patio Shield Mosquito Repeller a couple of weekends ago when we had family that wanted to be on the deck. Because it is so early in the season and it was quite chilly for April it is hard to know if it really worked or if the bugs just were not there. At lease I did not get bitten. It creates a 15 ft Mosquito free zone without using harmful chemicals or smelly smoky candles with open flames. I got the color chili – very muted and will blend in with anything. It comes with only 1 cartridge which lasts 12 hours and 3 mats that last 4 hours each. The replacement cartridge and 3 mats cost almost as much as the unit. Fighting those mosquitos might just get expensive. The unit is decorative, light weight and just blends in with whatever is around. It would be easy to take anywhere you are going to be out in nature sharing space with the little blood suckers. The 2 downsides for me are (1) that the cartridge only lasts 12 hours and (2) you must change the mats 3 times in that 12 hours. Maybe that is a small price to pay for a 15 ft. mosquito free zone. I am hoping that it works when the bugs get really bad.
