Description

Mosquito Magnet® Octenol - 6 Pack

Mosquito

The right attractant can turn your Mosquito Magnet® into an even more powerful mosquito killing device. If you live in the northern half of the United States, Canada or in coastal regions, the Octenol Refill Twin Pack is an effective as well as economical way to ensure you are getting the most out of your trap and providing your family with maximum protection against flying pests.

The EPA registered Mosquito Magnet® Octenol is a secondary attractant that mimics human breath, drawing mosquitoes and biting insects to the trap. It is an alcohol-type chemical that has been deemed safe for humans by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, but it is a vital weapon to have in your arsenal when it comes to killing flying pests!

Mosquito Magnet® Octenol attracts most mosquito species, including salt marsh mosquitoes, as well as no-see-ums and black flies. It will lure biting insects to the Mosquito Magnet® trap where they are captured by becoming entangled in mosquito nets, then dehydrate and die. This makes Mosquito Magnet® Octenol the hassle- free way of killing mosquitoes throughout the entire outdoor season. Sit back, relax and enjoy your favorite outdoor activities again, while Mosquito Magnet® does all the work!

 
 

Increase your catch rate up to 10 times!

Using a secondary attractant is critical to the performance of your Mosquito Magnet® trap, as the right attractant can dramatically increase the trap's ability to lure the flying pests. Once mosquitoes sense the carbon dioxide from the Mosquito Magnet®, they need secondary attractants, Octenol or Lurex3™, to hone in on the trap.

 

Choose the Right Attractant for your Region

Using the proper secondary attractant is proven to increase your mosquito catch rate by up to 10 times. These attractants lure mosquitoes to the trap by mimicking human skin scents and other natural odors.

Mosquito Magnet® attractants are the only brand to be EPA-registered and proven effective. This buying guide assists you in making the right decision based on your location and other factors.

Happy in the Keys! By Keyzlivin

Very happy with this product down in the Keys. It helps greatly with the mosquitos and the no see ums. Nothing is 100%, but this scent and the mosquito magnet help make sitting out tolerable. I wish more people would invest in them.

As long as there are biting insects, I will always have my Magnet running!! By Gail

Have used the magnets in my home since they came out over 20yrs ago.Gave to my folks and they were equally pleased as they live on brackish water and seasons are known by the type of biting insects! We are now going to be traveling the road and plan to take the magnet(s) with us. A must have for any trailer excursion in my books!! Don't leave home without it!

Problem By Boppo

I replaced the Octenol and use fresh gas and I have carefully cleaned my two Mosquito magnets, yet I can not find one dead mosquito in the net bag. What's going on? Lear Levin

Response From Mosquito Magnet®
Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello,

We are sorry to hear the desired results were not seen! Placement of the trap is very important to the success of the machine. We recommend keeping the trap at least 30-40 feet away from people areas, forcing the mosquitoes to the trap instead of humans. It should also be placed in-between the people areas and the breeding areas and in the direction the prevailing winds come from. Please click here for more information on proper placement.

If the trap isn't generating a sufficient vacuum, it will not be able to draw the mosquitoes into the net. To test this vacuum, we recommend holding a tissue under the trumpet. If the corners of the tissue lightly lift up, the trap is working correctly. The air should also be the temperature of human breath.

We hope this information was helpful! Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at (800) 953-5737 with any questions or for additional assistance. We are happy to help!

Not so good. By Rojamon

Not very effective at my property around my pool. I have mosquito spraying done as well by local landscape company and I still have plenty of those pesky insects around. Once dusk comes around we all have to go inside. It has only been about three weeks though since I started using the magnet so I will give it a little more time.

Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello,

Thank you for providing this feedback! We are sorry the desired results have not yet been seen. For the best results, we recommend keeping the trap at least 30-40 feet away from people areas to ensure the mosquitoes go to the trap rather than to humans. It is also important to position the trap in an open area in the direction the prevailing winds come from. For more placement information, please click here.

If you have any questions or need additional assistance, please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at (800) 953-5737. We are happy to help!

As long as there are biting insects, I will always have my Magnet running!! By Gail

We purchased our first Magnet some 18 yrs ago after seeing them in an airline magazine. Wanted for my folks who just moved in a home on a back bay. The mosquitos, no see ems, black flies and greenheads were terrible! After your product was set up, within 2 weeks, we could actually sit outside on the deck! The only ones in the neighborhood of 8 homes. Soon 5 of the neighbors also purchased your Magnet, and this section of the back bay was "outdoor friendly" again! My father empties the "net" at least once a week if not more, because it is full! Looks like tea bags were emptied into them there are so many! Ihave also purchased additional Magnet(s) over the years for myself and family, and everyone is always amazed how we have no "bugs" living in a wooded area! We will be moving to New Hampshire next spring, and you can bet my Magnets will be moving with us! Thank you for this wonderful machine!! Gail R
