ALL TERRAIN HERBAL ARMOR
These repellent sticks (10 to a package) are designed to be lit like incense sticks. They are thicker than a pencil and about as long. Fold out the prong on the included thin metal base and push it into the hole at the end of the stick. Light and voila! Lemon grass, citronella, rosemary, thyme and geranium oil, known repellents, are emitted as the stick smolders.
TIPS: They might work on beaches and would be best employed by driving a finishing nail into driftwood or stabbing a coat hanger into the sand.
RESULTS: Our sticks wouldn’t stay lit and wouldn’t stay upright on the tiny base. When we employed one on an improvised base, we didn’t experience the bug-free zone that Thermacell gave us.
These incense sticks were difficult to light and keep burning. They toppled easily.
