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.

It's a great product. By Gail

I really didn't think it would work but it works great. When I replace and put the new mosquito magnet in. I put the old one in the netting box and it seems to help attract them a lot more. I live by a river and a creek in my backyard and I have animals I want to protect. It works great.

A Tisket, A Tasket, Mosquitos by the Basket By John

Our Patriot Plus here in Florida is catching mosquitos by the basketful! If they were blueberries we could make a pie! We keep ours running 24/7 all through the year as we live on 3 acres and mosquitos are a never ending problem. We hope to buy another unit to add to our one.

Outstanding By Steve

The Mosquito Magnet is the only product that has gotten rid of those irritating pests. We have tried everything out there and this is the only thing that has worked. We've recommended it to family and friends and everyone who bought it has the same experience - NO Mosquitos !

Great product will take it with us when we move next year. By Chris

Always pleased with the results. The trick is to install it correctly, change the mosquito supplies always on time.

R-Octenol does the heavy lifting By Ron

If you have ever had an outdoor event ruined by mosquitos, you will understand why I am such a fan of R-Octenol. The Mosquito Magnet alone can collect and kill the mosquitos but it is the lure that does the heavy lifting. I inadvertently used the wrong lure for my region (Lurex) and the number of mosquitos captured went down to zero. Anyone who tells you that the lure is not necessary is misleading you and could ruin your next outdoor gathering. Stock up now for next year!

Owner By Steve

This is my second generation of Mosquito Magnets and I can hardly put into words how disappointed I am in them. At best batteries last 10 days and the catch is minimal even though there is a constant swarm of mosquitos around the machine. 110V machines I had in the past did a fabulous job. Any chance I can get these swapped for plug in units

So far - this attractant is so-so. By JT

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.

Bigger catch By Harold

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.

Q.Is the R Octenol the correct product to use in coastal GA? The map seems to indicate it only works in the northern coastal areas

While R-Octenol is typically recommended for Northern regions, it can be used in any area within 50 miles of the coastline.

Q.I can't find the quick clear cartridges. Also do I need a reset tool? I have the executive. 2 years old.

The Quick Clear Cartridges are no longer recommended. As long as all other storage and maintenance procedures are followed, the Mosquito Magnet® will operate for many years without incident. While the reset tool is no longer available, the manual steps below will provide the same results: 
1. Turn off the propane tank.  
2. Disconnect the regulator and listen carefully – Is there a hissing or release sound?
3. If you do hear that sound, keep the tank turned off, thread the regulator in and out of the tank, and listen for the sound again.
4. Keep doing this until you no longer hear a hiss or release sound – it may take several attempts.
5. Once you are no longer hearing that sound, go ahead and reconnect the regulator.
6. Reopen the propane. It is very important to open the propane slowly. If it is opened too quickly, the tank will never be fully engaged.

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.

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.
