Using an attractant is critical to the performance of your Mosquito Magnet®.  Once mosquitoes sense the carbon dioxide from the Mosquito Magnet®, they need secondary mosquito attractants, Octenol,  

R-Octenol or Lurex3™, to hone in on the trap. 


The choice of which Mosquito Magnet® attractant to use depends upon where you reside in the U.S., since certain mosquito species are found in certain regions of the country.  Learn more about our Octenol mosquito attractant below.
