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 RateIt works!
We've been using mosquito magnet for over 5 years and it works great year after year. I don't think you're ever going to get 100% of them little buggers......but better 'much less' than a lot of them!!! The 'octenol' makes it work better!! Love my magnet!
Review RateIneffective thus far
Ineffective, thus far. Its september, so I'm not going to put a new propane tank and attractant in. It caught some mosquitos, but me and my family were still harranged by them every time we tried to enjoy our modest back yard. I'll fire it up again next summer at the first sign of mosquitos and if it doesn't do the trick, I'll sell it. At $30 plus dollars a month to operate, I shouldn't have to buy bottles of Cutter to kill additional mosquitos, but that's what I just did so that we could try and enjoy these last few days of warm weather.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to share this feedback and apologize that the pesky mosquitoes are still around. Our Mosquito Magnet® Octenol Attractant is best used in Northern or Coastal regions. If located in the South, our Mosquito Magnet® Lurex3™ may be a better option and provide a greater catch.
Trap placement is also an important factor in how many mosquitoes you can expect to catch. Please feel free to try our Interactive Placement Guide to aid in finding the best location in your yard.

Review RateGreat results
We did notice a difference, look forward to long term use which I believe will be even more effective
Review RateGreatest Product!
We've been using mosquito magnet for over 10 years and it works great year after year. We live in the Adirondack Mountains with lots of mosquitos and bugs and don't know what we'd do without it.
Review RateGood stuff!
This stuff works folks! I have been using Mosquito Magnets for a long time. I even moved to a new place closer to salt water and the machine is humming away attracting and trapping the little buffers. Octenol is the bait.
Review RateNo catch
For reasons unknown I have zero catch this summer here in Michigan. Normally I have a catch early on and less as the trap eliminates them. This summer I have no catch.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Anthony : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and would be delighted to offer assistance. Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-800-953-5737 so we may discuss placement and attractants, in order to determine the best way to improve your catch rate. We look forward to helping you.
Review RateHurray for Octenol!
Filled half the bag this month. Better there than on us. The stuff works!
Review RateI love this Mosquito Magnet
We bought the large commercial version of Mosquito Magnet over 10 years ago and it has been doing a great job for us. Prior to that time we couldn't enjoy the outdoors without getting bitten up. I just love, love, love this item
Review RateClick going
I live in East Texas mosquitoes bad here put my mosquito magnet out and within a month mosquitoes were over half gone thank you
Review RateHappy with product
Octenol was received promptly as ordered. It works very well in our (3) Mosquito Magnet units (a Liberty, a Liberty Plus, and a Patriot) in Florida; have been running them for ~10 years now. Despite the maps used by MM showing the effective range of Octenol, it seems to work better than Lurex because we have had very few Asian Tiger mosquitos, but lots and lots and lots of other species. Our nets run between 1/2 full and full in less than a month. Very happy with the product, with the side benefit of seeing lots of caught deer flies as well.
