Key Features:

1. Self-Contained Rigid Net

The Patriot Plus features a larger-than-ever insect net to allow for increased performance and reduced emptying frequency. It is specially-engineered to maximize unblocked airflow, which is a critical component of the trap’s performance. 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.

Mosquito Magnet® Patriot Plus trap requires very little assembly, making it easy to set up and operate. In just 3 quick steps, you’re ready to begin operating your trap! Once turned on, the trap begins immediately targeting your mosquito problem, with noticeable results in as little as 7-10 days.

Running your trap 24/7 in the beginning will help break the mosquito breeding cycle to produce the best results.

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.

The Mosquito Magnet® Advantage

CounterFlow™ Technology

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.

magnet location By Donna

We've had our magnet for 1 month and have been very pleased. We just had a new batch of mosquitoes and its not keeping up. I wonder if we need to change our location. It is currently by a small barn next to the garden. Any suggestions?

Amazed just after a few days. By Annihilater

I was on the fence until I read the reviews. Even the bad reviews said it worked when it was working. So only time will tell. As far as I can tell though the maintenance needs to be kept up on this and it should have no issues. But rest assured I was amazed. I set this think up in a matter of minutes on a Thursday and only 4 days later I have about a half a cup of dead mosquitos in the trap and was so amazed to sit outside after only 3 days and not have a single mosquito near me. The wife went over to the trap at night and turned on her flashlight and you could literally see a few dozen mosquito swarming around waiting for their turn to die. I live in south Florida near the gulf. We just bought a new house without a screened in pool and this thing has saved us from being eat up which was what was previously happening. So my main take is to get this thing, Register it so you have your year warranty. Do the said maintenance at outlined in the book every 21 days. I'm going to put mine on a 20 day schedule just for S&G's

Waste of Money and Time By Twice Bitten

This product did not work at all - I've had it running for over a year. I first had it in my yard, but still had mosquitos coming into the house and none in the product's catch bin. So, I moved it to inside my pool cage and I still have more mosquitos coming into the house than I have ever found in the catch bin. The little electric counter-top mosquito catcher entices more mosquitos than this product. Very, very disappointed. Live in Florida and the mosquitos are brutal. I so wanted this to work.

Response From Mosquito Magnet®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.  

Placement of the trap can make a very big difference in the catch rate.  The trap should be placed upwind (prevailing winds) of breeding areas and at least 30-40 feet away from human activity areas.  More placement tips can be found on our website at the link below.

Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-953-5737 for additional assistance.

Hoping it picks up speed By Bitten Ankles

Received it 2 and a half weeks ago and have been running it continuously. Trapped mosquito yield has been less than expected. I'm hoping it picks up soon.

Great results from night one By MinnesotaMark

Located in Minnesota. Took about 10 minutes to set up. Very straightforward instructions. Started unit up and let it run overnight. I was skeptical, but check the unit this morning when I went to go run the dog. First thing I noticed is that I didn't have to swipe away any mosquitoes like I normally do. I wandered over to the unit that was still running to check out through the glass window. Lowband behold I could see hundreds of mosquitoes and other small flying insects inside the container. Unbelievable. I have no doubt that if I run this for the next for five days I will have no mosquitoes and will be able to finally enjoy my patio in the evening. I am probably going to move this unit further away from my house and closer to the edge of the property in a couple days to make sure everyone in the neighborhood feels the joy !

Waste of money By Yom

I purchased a patriot plus last may 21. It didn't work as advertised. Set it up again June 1 this year. Went to change the propane tank June 21 and the led light on the switch was still blinking, the magnet never turned on. I've blown it out, turned it off and back on to reset it, all to no avail. Called the service center today. I'm told it's out of warrantee so I'll have to purchase a new one . Purchasing this looks like a waste of money

Why is there only 1 review in 2017? By Beverly

A little spooked that there is only one review so far in 2017 and it is almost the 4th of July with the height of the mosquito season in full swing.

Not working as advertised. By Jay

I've had it for a little over 2 weeks and considering a return if possible. I've changed the attractant as instructed since I live in the southern portion of the United States. The mosquito issue hasn't changed a bit and the trap barely catches anything. I haven't even had to empty it once yet. I opened the propane tank valve slowly as instructed and flipped the switch... it blinked for a few minutes and turned solid.

Response From Mosquito Magnet®
Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Jay,

Thank you for sharing this feedback. When the trap is run continuously, it can take 7-10 days to begin to notice significant catches. It will take up to 3-4 weeks before the mosquito breeding cycle will be effected.

When the trap starts up, it will slowly flash a red light. Once it is operating, the red light will remain solid. The placement of the trap in the yard is also a key factor to achieving a higher catch rate.

Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-953-5737 so we may learn more about the placement of the trap and offer troubleshooting assistance.

Fantastic By Mosquito Killer

Im beginning to feel sorry for the mosquitos.This contraption just about demolished the Mosquitos in my 1.5 acre yard.Today I went around the property emptying any crevices that contained water.Tonight I sat outside for over an hour just to test the little devils and they were all gone.Tomorrow I might leave some water for them just to watch them die in my Patriot contraption.

Q.If I understand correctly, the unit makes c02 from propane to attract Mosquitoes, so why is the lure attractant needed?

The Carbon Dioxide emitted from the trap is the primary attractant, which mimics human breath. Using a secondary attractant of either Lurex3 or Octenol (depending on geographical location) will help to increase the catch rate by 10 times as these attractants also mimic human scent and sweat.

Q.Can the unit be hooked up to a natural gas source rather than propane?

No. Mosquito Magnet® traps are designed to operate with propane. In cases where pure propane is not available then a mix of propane and butane may be used. In NO circumstance should natural gas be used.

Q.Why can't the Patriot Plus unit be shipped to New Mexico?

This trap is not registered for use in New Mexico, which is why it can not ship there.
