Mosquito Magnet® Octenol - 6 Pack
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.

Review RateNot so good.
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.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
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!
Review RateAs long as there are biting insects, I will always have my Magnet running!!
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
Review RateFANTASTIC. A MUST HAVE IN MINNESOTA.
i LOVE my Mosquito Magnet! Couldn't enjoy my yard without it. Have owned one since I read a review in Consumer Reports over 20 years ago!
Review RateMosquito Magnets save the day!
My purchase of my mosquito magnet.....and this subsequent re-order of Octenol.....wow.....these products save the day.....day in and day out! We live by a lake and are surrounded by woods where those pesky little critters thrive......we have not been bothered by them at all.....and we have quite a bit of rain as of late as well! Thanks Mosquito Magnet!!! You're the best!
Review RateBest product ever
We can use the backyard again! Thank you Mosquito Magnet!
Review RateGood-Bye mosquitos
Worked so well, when I emptied out the screen trap it was filled with mosquitos. If they are in there, they are not on me! Yea Mosquito Magnet.
Review RateNew Patriot II purchase working great!
My first experience with Mosquito Magnet was hit or miss and very frustrating. I spent several hundred dollars on quick clear and many repairs to keep it running. I did so because the Mosquito Magnet eats up mosquitos. We live in Minnesota and as you know the mosquito is the state bird. I bought a new unit this summer, Patriot II and it is working great. The mosquito count is way down and the machine is crushing mosquitos.
Review RateHappy with the results this year
Happy with the reduction of the mosquito population!
Review RateHappy with the results this year
We purchased out Patriot Plus Mosquito Magnet last year, mid summer. Our first thought was that it was just ok. This year, however, we placed it in our yard in early May.The results have been very noticeable! We live on Northern Wisconsin and just celebrated the 4th of July week with our family, here at our home. Everyone noticed the reduction in the mosquito population and how nice it was to be able to sit outside. If there was a place to share some pictures, I could show you our last 21 day catch! Now if you could only come up with something to keep the deer from eating g my flowers
