Mosquito Magnet® R-Octenol - 6 Pack
This Pack contains a total of 6 cartridges!
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.

Love these products - no pesky mosquito bite anymore
Review RateSo far - this attractant is so-so.
We've only been running our Patriot Plus for one week now, so according to the Mosquito Magnet people this review is a bit early. However... yes, we have a total of 32 mosquitos in the trap, I counted. Which, quite frankly, is not a lot. I must admit, I'm a little bit disappointed. I'm judging this on the fact that I could stand in one spot for HALF AN HOUR and attract more than 32 mosquitos, and that is during the day! It certainly would NOT take an entire week for my body to attract 32 mosquitos!! Which is why I am only giving 3 stars at this time. But, I am willing to update my review after a full month. And since the professionals say it takes a few weeks to REALLY get going, I'm willing to wait and see if this machine can live up to its reputation. We certainly do have enough mosquito action to keep the Patriot Plus VERY busy! So only 3 stars for now.
Review RateBigger catch
Caught a lot more flying bugs and continues to collect mosquitoes. Not sure what kind of bugs its catching and whether or not they are biting bugs but satisfied with the results.
Review RateAbsolute essential.
Could be outside without them.
Review RateOk the best way to get maximum effect is use both attractants at the same time. Noticed a significant increase in kill rate.

Review RateVery disappointed with the product and customer service
The worst investment - I have 2 one works without any issues the other never works. I have spent many hrs on the phone with customer service - sent them back for repair only to have them come back and work for a day and stop working again. I have owned this for 3 months. It has worked for two weeks than I was trouble shoot with customer service for two weeks then sent it back - 3 weeks later I get it back and it worked for 1 day and stopped again. Spoke with a manager and now we are in the same cycle again - send it back get it repaire and back to me in 3 weeks. Just replace the unit or give me my money back. Very disappointing to spend $750 on a product and having it serviced more than being used!!! Isn’t the whole idea of the product is to interrupt the breeding cycle?? My trap has spent the entire spring/early summer getting fixed. So this season is goneResponse From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateVery disappointed
My misquote magnet has never worked since the day I purchased it. I've spent many hours on the phone with various customer service employees and have tried everything to make this device work. I've finally got the company to take it back and am hoping for a full refund. I really hoped that this device would've worked and allowed us to sit outside in the evenings.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateVery disappointed
I've had my mosquito magnet for almost a year and it's never killed any mosquitoes. I've asked the company to let me return it for a full refund but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. They say it only has a 30 day return policy even though it takes more than that to kill mosquitoes.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback! We are very sorry for this experience. Placement is key for a large catch. We recommend keeping the trap 30-40 feet away from human activity and between those areas and breeding locations. It should also be placed upwind and in a shaded location.

Review RateLike the new attractent
I tried R-Octenol for the first time. Works well for mosquitoes there were a few other kinds of insects in the trap but mostly mosquitoes. I'm going to continue using the R-Octenol it attracts at least as many if not more mosquitoes and does attract other flying insects.
