Review RatePoor reliability
I bought this machine 3 years ago and it has been hopelessly unreliable. It has been returned for repair four times and fails after each occasion. It starts up on warm and presents an error message before the indicator light goes green. Our old Pro model is still going strong after nearly seven years and has presented no problems at all. The nets have a flimsy plastic gateway which breaks easily and are expensive to replace. Our machine is in Scotland where the aftercare is poor. This machine has proved too clever by half although when it is working it is effective.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Hello Kevin, We apologize for this experience and are glad that our team is working with you to make this right. This trap does have a feature that will turn the unit off when the temperature drops below 50 degrees. That can happen at night even though it is warmer during the day. Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-953-5737 with any additional questions.

Living in the south this product has helped control the mosquitos around our property! Thank you so much!
Review RateGreat unit but flimsy base support
Our first Mosquito Magnet served us well for 10 years. We selected the Executive model for our successor unit and have been pleased with its performance thus far. My only complaint is the flimsy plastic fold-out foot of the base was cracked upon receipt and am waiting for customer support to replace it. The old unit's base was constructed of cast aluminum and much more sturdy. Outside of the base issue, the new Executive model is working well.
Review RateLove it....
This is our second mosquito magnet as we had the Defender for over 10 years. Decided to upgrade and can only say that this new Executive is all they say. Easy to use, and love the features.
Review RateExecutive Features are Worth the extra price!I purchased the Executive over the Independence after debating if it was worth the extra money. I had owned a Mosquito Magnet for 10 years at my old house. All of the problems, and changes I wish my original Magnet had the new Executive had the answers to them all with additional features that I feel are well worth the extra price.
Review RateWish these lasted more than 2 yrsI've had many of these. After 2 year expect to buy a new one
Review RateOutstanding service
We have a large lot surrounded by woods. Many years ago we purchased 2 Liberty model Mosquito Magnets. After many years it was time to replace them. We had several choices of different manufacturers, but with the lack of mosquitos, Singe using the Mosquito Magnet, I had to stick with what works. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to enjoy our yard with out smelly sprays, lotions and no mosquitos.
Review RateNot a good experience - so far
I bought the Executive model to replace a Patriot model which had outlived its usefulness. When the new MM Executive arrived, it did not work. I had to return it and am waiting for a new unit to be shipped.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWorks exactly as advertised.
This the my second MM. My first one (liberty plus) kept my yard mosquito free for ~10 years. Never a hiccup. In its 10th year it wouldnt start. Im going to send it for repairs but needed a box big enough to ship it in. So I bought an excutive model and am using the box it came in. Problem solved. It's been up and running for about a month now and its catching mosquitos. I live in NW New Jersey and biting insects are a big issue. Well, not for me because of my MM. I set mine up a bit on the early side. At first it only catches a few but you cannot look at it as "well its only a few". The first mosquitos are the hardy ones and early breeders so knocking them off is very important. Even if it were just two or three that first month- its the females that will breed and produce more early risers. Having two will make it so I don't have to move the one around. PROS- works EXACTLY as advertised, no pesticides that kill beneficial insects (spiders build webs all around this thing- you MUST clear them out of the suction horn!!), by the second or third month mosquitos are gone (I can go out any time without a shirt without worry), traps and kills mosquitos BUT it also traps biting gnats and those other small biting insects and even horse flies end up in the trap (not lots though, I assume because they are strong fliers) you know because it's working for two reasons- you don't get bit AND you see them dead in the bag. CONS- no big red white and blue sticker that says "proudly made in the USA". Really guys?? Its hard enough to find anything made here anymore so it would be really nice if you put one on AND sent one to me. SUGGESTIONS- bigger tires, maybe even air filled to make it easier to roll over yard and dirt. Bolt or pin all the pieces together (head, stem and tank). I talk this thing up every chance I get because people have to stop using poisons, they fix the problem short term but makes things so much worse for all of us in the long run by killing all the bugs and then the bad bugs repopulate so much faster than the good bugs.
