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 RateGreat product will take it with us when we move next year.
Always pleased with the results. The trick is to install it correctly, change the mosquito supplies always on time.
Review RateR-Octenol does the heavy lifting
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!
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 unitsResponse From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

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.

Delivered and works as advertised.
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
