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.

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.

Great product! Great customer service! By Rob

I have had a Mosquito Magnet for about 20 years now, and I have always felt it is a great product. The Octenol helps tremendously with my catch rate here in Illinois. Ordering from here is quick and easy, and your product arrives in a timely fashion.

Like it a lot. By Moose
The Magnet makes a big difference, it always takes at least one cycle each year to start seeing a difference and living by the lake it is never perfect but what is!

Still bitting By Ginny

Had it for over 2 years now. Definitely catches some mosquitoes but not all. Was pretty good this spring but got bit last night and this morning again. The trap is upwind of my patio but still does not work as well as I had hoped.

Response From Mosquito Magnet®
Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Ginny,

We are sorry to hear about this experience and are happy to help.

The trap should be placed upwind of breeding areas such as standing water and bushes, and 30-40 feet from human activity areas. More information on trap placement can be found at the link below.  Please give our Consumer Relations Team a call at 1-800-953-5737 for additional assistance.
