Here in Vermont, to keep the black flies, mosquitoes, and other biting insects from pestering us, we rely on these old-fashioned punk sticks. When lit, the smoke drives away bugs, but isn't offensive to people so you can enjoy the great outdoors pest-free! Each 10½" stick burns just shy of an hour. Set of 400 stick.

  • Each stick burns almost an hour
  • Set of 400 lasts a long time

When picnicking, camping, or simply relaxing outdoors, do as we do in Vermont and light a few punk sticks to keep those pesky insects from bugging you.

Reminds me of my childhood My brother and I use to pretend like we were smoking these when we were little and haven't seen them in years. I bought him the 400ct for Christmas and he was so EXCITED when he opened them, we had to light one right away. Thank you for bringing back awesome memories! December 29, 2014
MEMORIES! I will be buying a TON of these!!! I can't believe you carry them! I have been looking for these for years! Bring back awesome memories of being a kid camping and walking around with these to keep the bugs away!!! I am so excited!!!!! June 22, 2014
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. February 28, 2014
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. October 2, 2013
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! October 1, 2013
With reservation... 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. August 23, 2013
