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.
3. Quick and Easy Assembly
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. You should begin to see significant reduction in your mosquito population in just 4 weeks. Running your trap 24/7 in the beginning will help break the mosquito breeding cycle to produce the best results.
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.

Review RateFinicky device, not worth this kind of money
Not impressed. Have been through all three attractants, sometimes in combination with each other. Mosquitoes gather, but aren't caught. Just changed propane tank and the trouble LED flashes. Called for tech support and was told to disconnect and reconnect the propane hose several times (nowhere in the manual) to no avail. Tech kept asking if she could get off the phone...no interest in helping.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. After the trap goes through the warm up process, there might be a fast blinking red light on the switch. If this occurs, the first thing to do is to shut off the trap, disconnect the power cord and regulator and allow the trap to cool for at least 15 minutes. After this has been completed, we recommend using two Quick Clear Cartridges and a new propane tank and start the trap up again.
This product is covered under a 30 day return policy and a one year warranty with a copy of the original purchase receipt. If additional assistance is needed, please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at (800) 953-5737.
Review RateWell worth it.
Works great. The net was almost full when the 1st tank of propane ran out. Using the R-Octenol in Northwest Wisconsin, has worked very well. Can be outside at sunset and I don't even get bit.
Review RateBuy it
I love this Magnet Thank You. This is my first time writing a review too anything. It Works perfect,we stay in Tampa fl had to buy the proper attractions Bam!
Review RateIt definitely works
We first bought one for our parents who's house is adjacent to a swamp. This was the first summer we could eat outside and not be bit up. After that, we decided to buy one for our house seeing it was getting annoying trying to eat dinner on the deck but getting bit up. It worked great for our house as well. We have a garden about 150 feet away from the house and there are definitely mosquitos there yet, but it's only been a few weeks. The machine has over 2 inches of dead mosquitos in it. It definitely works.
Review RateWorks great with the right attractant
I hate mosquitoes. I wanted a maintenance free way of getting rid of them that wasn't bad for the environment. I bought the patriot plus. It came with attractant that was for northern mosquitoes, but I was in the south. It didn't work well with that set up. Then I bought the proper attractant and it is working miracles. If you have the money, hate mosquitoes a lot, don't want to do any work, and want to be environmentally friendly.
Review RateHoped it would work better
I was eager to try the Mosquito Magnet. Almost every time our family tried to enjoy leisure time in the back yard we would be bitten by mosquitoes. I set the trap up and followed all of the instructions to obtain optimum results and we still have mosquitoes and they still bite us after one month of having the trap. I recently performed the 21 day maintenance as instructed to achieve maximum results. I still get swarmed by mosquitoes when entering the back yard. I'm going to continue using the trap as recommend until the end of the season in the hopes that it performs as we hoped it would. Right now I'm not pleased with the results.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
Placement is a key factor in the success of our Mosquito Magnet® traps. For best results, we recommend placing the trap 30-40 feet away from where people are spending the majority of their time in the yard, as well as upwind from breeding area. This will help stop mosquitoes before they get to you!

I just bought this on 7/18/17 and put it together on 7/19/17 and I still can not get the damn thing to work. Its starts up just fine, goes through the warm up period with the light a slow steady flash then the light goes into a fast flashing mode which according to the book is an error indicator. I am passed pissed. After having saved up to get one of these I end up with a piece of junk made in CHINA......... Now i get to spend more of my time packing this thing up and shipping it back after spending hours trying to get the damn thing to work..... To hell with your warranty MM...... Its on its way back to you....Response From Mosquito Magnet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

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?Response From Mosquito Magnet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateAmazed just after a few days.
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
Review RateWaste of Money and Time
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.
