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.

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 RateWorks as advertised
Love this product. I've reclaimed my outdoor deck again. Thanks for the cust. svc. commentary about the R-Octenol vs. the regular Octenol. I thought I needed the R-Octenol for better (higher volume) trapping and for the type of mosquitos I have in CT.
Review RateR-Octenol is a big improvement over Octenol.
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.

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

I am happy with the results, even though I am on a windy hilltop.
Review RateGreat product! Great customer service!
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.

Review RateLong-time fan
I have been a mosquito magnet fan for the last 10 years. My yard is consistently to most mosquito free in our heavily wooded neighborhood. Most years octenol works great, and at times we have figured our how to use both Lurex and octenol if the population of mosquitos is mixed. Very pleased with quality of the products and the level of service.
