Please Bring These Back
We just moved out to the country and when I saw these last year on your website I was so excited. It reminded me of being a kid again up in Wisconsin sitting by the lake at night. They work where I live now too - who knew!!! Now I see they are no longer available. Please bring them back!!!! I stick them in vases filled with colored beads & set them on the table when we sit outside to listen to the river & watch the stars.

I can't believe you carry these :)
Punk sticks bring back wonderful memories ! We are camping now with our grandkids and told them about punk sticks keeping Mosquitos away. Of course they didn't know what we were talking about....and then I thought of Vermont Country Store ! The sticks arrived in great shape and I can't wait for their next visit ! You guys ROCK !

Hard to find natural, no oils added, Punk Sticks.
Was having trouble finding true punk sticks in the south, have used them for ages for mosquito control on the porch, wanted the ones that are natural no oils added. Vermont Country Store met that need.

Punk Sticks Bug Repellers
I remembered using punk sticks when I was a little girl over 50 years ago. When I saw them advertised in your magazine I was happy to order them. We use them all summer when we sit outside. They really do work - we can eat outside bug-free, plus they smell good too!

Yes I would recommend this product to a friend but would warn him that the punks burn for half hour at best, not the one hour claimed. Also, it was a bit confusing in the description. One part claims it is a 600 ct. package and another part states 400 ct., well you get the lesser of course.
I must be fair and say that the punks do the job and do it well. I just wish The Vermont Country Store would clear up these issues.
Oh, they did include an extra 100 punks in the order. Whoopie!

Kept the Mosquitos away.
The smell brought us back to our childhood days, the mosquitos were certainly kept away. Each punk lasted about 30 miinutes. The smell is preferred over citronella.

So much better than bug spray!
I'm loathe to spray chemical repellants on myself, choosing instead to pass around the punks...or citronella sticks. You are truly THE ONLY PLACE that still markets these time tested wonders. Please don't stop!

Scares the Skeeters Away
I was at an outdoor event, and the hostess was burning these and they really did keep the mosquitos away, so was happy to see them in VCS catalog. I find that each stick burns about 1/2 hr. and the smell reminds me of Pic coils (remember the drive-in movie? and burning a pic coil on the dashboard- PEW!!) Of course, I burn these just as shown in the clay pot with sand in it, usually by our feet, outside, so the smell is DEFINITELY better than being carried away by the hordes... Would recommend these for outdoor gatherings .
