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 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.
Review RateGood value
Lasts longer than regular octenol
Review Rateworks great

Review RateOver 12 years a customer and continuing
I have been a Mosquito Magnet user for more than 12 years, UNINTERRUPTED. It started when we were summer vacationing in the Keys and everywhere we visited had enormous mosquito presence except for the resort we were staying at. While playing volleyball and other outdoor sports along the Bayside (where breezes can be non-existent) we noticed the lack of mosquitos. Next to the volleyball court was a Mosquito Magnet!! We remembered passing a Mosquito Magnet Store nearby and went to visit the same afternoon. That day we purchased our first unit and have not dared to live near the Florida coast along inland waterways without one since. When friends ask if it works, the proof is in the outdoor experience at our home for them. I have referred over 60 people to the website where they view the tutorial and sign off as customers. (I wish I earned commission!) I will always have a Mosquito Magnet in my back 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.
