Thermacell reportedly is good, but I have not used it.

yes, you can turn it off, and restart often.  The pad changes color as it is depleted, so you can tell if you need a new one.

On this topic if tangentially...

 

Has anyone got an image of mosquito screens for the turnbuckle doors ?

 

A former member was making and marketing them although I believe his had the older sliding doors.

 

I would be interested to see what others have done....

 

Traveling east in the fall and it is BUGGY  ( 00 )

So you put the fuzzy portion on the cabinet and the grippy on the screen ?

 

Metal screening or fabric ?

 

Any sort of pull tab ?

 

Many thanks
