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.
