Mosquito Magnet® R-Octenol - 3 Pack
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.

Review RateNot to crazy about it.
So far after several tanks of gas, this attractant and the other attractant available, I am still unable to go out the door without being eaten alive by mosquitos. Maybe my machine is in the wrong spot.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We are very sorry to hear of this experience! Trap placement is very important for a great catch. We recommend keeping the unit 30-40 feet away from people areas and in the direction the prevailing winds come from. Please click here for more tips on proper trap placement.

Review RateThanks Mosquito Magnet for giving us our back & front yard back
Before Mosquito Magnet you could not sit by our pool in the evening. Now it is hard to believe It is the same back yard. Ten grand kids will be over today and they will all be in the pool all day and evening with no Mosquitos. Thanks Mosquito Magnet.
Review RateBuy it.
Did the trick. No more mosquitoes in my yard, no more unhappy children slapping at their legs. Absolutely worth the money.
Review RateGreat way to protect small children
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!
Review RateAmazing product
We are so pleased with our Mosquito Magnet!! We live in Maine where we also have black flies and this machine catches them too. What an amazing product. We couldn’t go outside without it!
Definitely works. Happy it’s eco-friendly. No harsh chemicals. And no more bug spray for me or the yard.
Review RateOutstanding poduct
We werre unable to enjoy our patio here in sunny Florida until received the Mosquito Magent materials. Almost immediately the poblem has been abated and we now are able to sit outside enen into the early night without devastation.
Review RateFantastic product
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
Review RateDefinitely works
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.
Review RateIt's ok
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
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.
