Description

Mosquito Magnet® R-Octenol - 3 Pack

Mosquito

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, R-Octenol 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® R-Octenol is a secondary attractant that mimics human breath, drawing mosquitoes and biting insects to the trap. Mosquito Magnet® R-Octenol works the same as regular Octenol, but lasts 40% longer - up to 30 days! This is ideal for Executive or Commander Trap owners running their trap on mode 4 as the propane tank lasts 30 days in this mode.

Mosquito Magnet® R-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, then dehydrate and die.

 
 

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.

Great way to protect small children By Aliciaaz

I switched from the Octenol to the R-Octenol based on my location of the Northeast and we noticed a big increase in the number of catches - I am dumping the trap daily now! What a great relief to be able to protect my young child from the bugs in such an easy way!

Fantastic product By M

Fantastic capture Rate! Do your homework and buy the correct lure for your area. Trap fills up every two to three weeks during peak hatches. Reduced population by 90% within two months. Need one in our front yard next.... Thanks ! Michael

Definitely works By NetOps

Definitely works. We're on the water and the collection is sometimes affected by offshore breezes and compressor fan. Our best collections have been on cooler days when we're not using AC.

It's ok By Ken

It started out well. We'd be out by the pool and only encountered 1 or 2 mosquitos. Yesterday my son was doing yard work later in the day and said he was getting eaten alive. I'll have to monitor this.

Response From Mosquito Magnet®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Ken,

We apologize for this experience and will be glad to help.

He may have been in between the breeding areas and the trap.  It takes about 4 weeks to interrupt the breeding cycle, so this should improve in those spots after some time.  Trap placement is key to a successful catch rate.  Information and tips can be found at the link below.

R-Octenol is a big improvement over Octenol. By Mama Plemaker

I'm very happy with the results I'm getting from the R-Octenol. I've used regular Octenol for more than 15 years and had good results for the early and mid-season mosquitoes, however the magnets never worked on the late-season mosquitoes - the tiny, fast ones, like the ones on the Cape. We get them around here in August. The traps just didn't seem to attract them. I'm just switched to R-Octenol this season and I can already see a difference in the traps. Every morning, I'm seeing those little, vicious ones in the net. That never happened before in August. So, I'm switching to R-Octenol from now on.

Response From Mosquito Magnet®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

We are very glad to hear that the product is providing good results.  

Our Octenol and R-Octenol both contain the same attractant ingredients.  Octenol will last 21 days, which is the same length of time a propane tank will last when used 24/7, so that the propane and attractant can be changed at the same time. The R-Octenol will last 30 days for traps that have the propane-saving feature.

It works By JeanneNT

This product reduces the Mosquito population. We live near a creek that floods - so it can get bad at times.

Q&A
Q.We live b/w dc and Richmond Va. While Va.'s coastal, we're an 50 miles from Chesapeake Bay and 100 miles+ from Ocean. Which attractant should we use? Were sent Octenol.
A.

The Octenol is recommended for locations within 50 miles of the coastline or if your noticing the mosquitoes biting during early/late day. Mosquitoes that bite during the day are attracted to the Lurex3™.

Q.Can this be used separate from any of your units? I'm curious if it has to accompany one of your units or if it can be used as a "secondary" form to catch and kill mosquitos? I don't want to order if I have to own a unit to dispense. Didn't know if it comes with it's own "holder' per se.
A.

This product can only be used with the Mosquito Magnet®. It is specifically designed to attract the mosquitoes to the machine where they will be captured and dehydrate.

Q.Does this bait work in defender model?
A.

Yes, this works in all of our units, but please note that it is intended for Northern & Coastal US Regions. Please feel free to call us at 1-800-953-5737 if there is any doubt about which attractant you should be using.
