The Mosquito Magnet® Advantage
Mosquito Magnet® traps are backed by over 20 years of research and 15 patents that make our traps technologically advanced.
Mosquito Magnet® traps work by mimicking the way humans attract mosquitoes. Through its exclusive patented CounterFlow™ technology the trap converts propane into CO2, mixes it with the precise level of heat, moisture and attractant to lure mosquitoes to the trap and then vacuums mosquitoes into the net where they dehydrate and die.

I think I have gone through all of the magnets they offer (I have multiple properties) and everyone has worked great. My only recommend would be is they could make the Independent use the rechargeable battery pack that come on the higher models. You could make the battery department flexible enough to use both the battery cage and rechargeable. Other than that great work guys!Date published: 2016-09-12Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Replacement Unit I purchased this unit as a replacement for the 'Pro" I have had for many years. This new unit shows many improvements over the older Pro. It was easy to assemble and the initial start-up was exceptional easy. The outside temp is just over 40 degrees F. The Weather person on TV stated there will be a major increase in temp and we should see the first mosquito of the year this weekend. We will see how the unit functions.Date published: 2016-05-02Rated 1 out of 5 by Wayne from Haven't used it yet when on vacation. I failed to read fine print ? all the pictures I saw all had a propane tank attached hmmmm Oh well live and learnDate published: 2016-03-08Rated 4 out of 5 by Burrell from New system start-up The systems work very well. I get frustrated in keeping Gas adjusted especially on each start-up with gas changes. However after 5-6 systems I am learning how to keep it running most of the time.Date published: 2015-07-19Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Piece of junk Worked for about 18 months but chewed up batteries like crazy if you don't change the propane before it runs out. Broke after 18 months- repaired twice and now broken again. Going in the trash now.Date published: 2014-06-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Better than 6 Tiki torches on your deck! We live near a pond and kept getting mauled by mosquitos in the evening. We thought of getting tiki torches like our neighbors have on their deck. As I looked over in the long line of neighbors all I could see was rolling smelly smoke coming from each yard with an average of 6 torches each deck. I heard from a friend about the mosquito magnet and how amazing it was. Being a skeptic I bought it and kept the box and receipt. After a two weeks and four full traps of dead mosquitos I recycled the box and kept what I consider one of my best investments! My wife son and 6 month old were outside for over an hour in the evening without one single mosquito bites! Oh and I forgot to mention it seems to attract and suck up gnats. (My neighbor and I figured out that if everyone in our neighborhood were to get one there wouldn't be any mosquitos on our street and they wouldn't have to spray those harmful chemicals.)Date published: 2012-09-06Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Stopped after just 2 months We bought the Independence bundle with Octenol for a property in Massachusetts. We are next to conservation land - lots of trees and mosquitos. The Independence was started in June and was working wonderfully. We could sit outside without any issue. Then, we got fault lights, contacted Mosquito Magnet, took it to a certified repair place, got it back. It worked for a few days and the fan stopped. Called them again, took it to a different location authorized by M.M. Got it back yesterday, stopped working today. I will not buy another one or recommend it. Too bad too because it was really great at the start.Date published: 2012-08-29Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from A Rock Star We live lakeside in Haliburton Ontario. 4 weeks ago we avoided going outside at any time - period. With the new trap between the house and dock we now walk to and sit there with almost none of the pests bothering us. The difference is like being this swarmed as this year's American Idol winner or the being the runner up from 10 years ago where nobody even knows you exist.Date published: 2011-07-04
