In addition, this net allows for effortless disposal and replacement without having to come in direct contact with dead insects. For optimum performance, you should change your net every 21 days.
2. Extra-long Power Cord
For your convenience, the Mosquito Magnet® Patriot Plus unit comes equipped with a 50-foot, 12-volt power cord. This handy feature allows for proper placement of your trap, so that it is separated from your outdoor living areas and adjacent to mosquito breeding and nesting areas. To properly secure your power cord, Patriot Plus comes with lawn clips which help to reduce the potentially hazardous conditions that could be caused by a loose cord in your lawn.

Increase Your Catch Rate With The Right 2-Month Accessory Bundle
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.
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 found the issue and it wasn't the Patriot tripping the outlet. I fixed the problem and the unit seems to be working fine. The pwr supply still gets very warm to the touch though, even at night when no sun is out.Date published: 2016-09-05Rated 4 out of 5 by Wild from Seem better, but time will tell I bought this one to replace my old Patriot, which was nothing but problems since day 1. I kept the old one going because when it did work, it worked well at reducing my mosquito population. The new one started right away and does't have the screen with the PCB sitting right behind it (with no conformal coating or protection from the elements) like the previous model did, so I hope it lasts longer. I live next to the Bay and the salt air destroyed the unprotected electronics in the old model ..Twice. I have not been thru a tank of fuel, so I haven't pulled the basket out to see how many dead mosquitoes are in it to compare to the old model yet, but the new model has a much bigger basket that seals better when you close the lid too. I have notice that the AC/AC converter runs very hot and since mine is in the sun, it kept tripping my GFI outlet during the daytime. Not sure why since their is no gnd plug on the AC plug for it. I had to cover it with AL tape so that it would reflect the sun (instead of the black plastic case absorbing the suns heat) and not trip the outlet. Let's see how long this pwr supply lasts. The previous model went the 2x of them.Date published: 2016-08-30Rated 4 out of 5 by Leonel from one small change Pretty amazing work...there is only one small aspect which could be improved. The way the attractant (lurex) or the cap for the "scent tube" is attached is kind of flimsy..... I would engineer this to be a little more solid. The way it is right now...it doesn't really click just kind of gets hooked so it does not fall. Maybe a" screw in" or better" click and lock" mechanism would be better.Date published: 2016-08-27Rated 4 out of 5 by James from Great item I'm glad I bought this it is working greatDate published: 2016-08-17Rated 4 out of 5 by Jge3 from Beginning phase Purchase was received quickly and assembly was simple. Product is sturdy. It's only been running a week, so too soon to see impact. Fingers crossed. I purchased it so that my 4 yr old can enjoy his playset without being bitten repeatedly an so we can enjoy the backyard.Date published: 2016-08-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Skiboat Dave from works great. I live in New England. It runs 24hrs a day but only really nails them in the evening and at night. I check the bin and every morning and there are tons of the little buggers flying around and by that afternoon there all dead.Date published: 2016-08-12Rated 5 out of 5 by surfmom from Wonderful Product! We have had our Patriot Plus for 2 months ,now, and it is a lifesaver. Finally had a front porch added on, and after all this time I wanted to be able to sit out on it in the evenings. Eversince we set up the magnet, I can sit out on porch and husband can do his hobbies on driveway! I live in Florida, so you know how important having something like this is. Easy to operate and quiet...Just to let you know, I found out about this product from my brother who lives in Pa. and he has had his for about 5 years, now. Loves it!Date published: 2016-08-07
Is the 50 ft power cord to use if you don't use propane tank ?The power cord and propane tank are required to run the trap. The propane tank converts propane into carbon dioxide, which is used to attract the mosquitoes.Date published: 2016-12-19
