Questions about Mosquito Magnet® Patriot Plus Mosquito Trap
In the beginning, we recommend running the trap 24/7 to break the mosquito breeding cycle and to produce the best results. A significant reduction in the mosquito population should be seen in about four weeks.
We recommend changing the propane tank and the attractant every 21 days. Only one attractant should be used in the trap at a time.
Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at (800) 953-5737 with any questions or for additional assistance.
The Octenol and R-Octenol will attract most mosquitoes. Our Lurex3™ was developed for the Asian Tiger Mosquito, which are most often found in southern regions. We do recommend using Lurex3™ in northern climates if day-biting mosquitoes are present.
This trap weighs approximately 22.5 lbs and is approximately 17"H x 20"W x 16"D when boxed.
We recommend the use of a 20 lb. propane tank. No other tank sizes should be used with the Mosquito Magnet® traps.
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.
