I replaced the Octenol and use fresh gas and I have carefully cleaned my two Mosquito magnets, yet I can not find one dead mosquito in the net bag. What's going on? Lear LevinResponse From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear the desired results were not seen! Placement of the trap is very important to the success of the machine. We recommend keeping the trap at least 30-40 feet away from people areas, forcing the mosquitoes to the trap instead of humans. It should also be placed in-between the people areas and the breeding areas and in the direction the prevailing winds come from. Please click here for more information on proper placement.
If the trap isn't generating a sufficient vacuum, it will not be able to draw the mosquitoes into the net. To test this vacuum, we recommend holding a tissue under the trumpet. If the corners of the tissue lightly lift up, the trap is working correctly. The air should also be the temperature of human breath.

Review RateNot so good.
Not very effective at my property around my pool. I have mosquito spraying done as well by local landscape company and I still have plenty of those pesky insects around. Once dusk comes around we all have to go inside. It has only been about three weeks though since I started using the magnet so I will give it a little more time.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for providing this feedback! We are sorry the desired results have not yet been seen. For the best results, we recommend keeping the trap at least 30-40 feet away from people areas to ensure the mosquitoes go to the trap rather than to humans. It is also important to position the trap in an open area in the direction the prevailing winds come from. For more placement information, please click here.

Review RateAs long as there are biting insects, I will always have my Magnet running!!
We purchased our first Magnet some 18 yrs ago after seeing them in an airline magazine. Wanted for my folks who just moved in a home on a back bay. The mosquitos, no see ems, black flies and greenheads were terrible! After your product was set up, within 2 weeks, we could actually sit outside on the deck! The only ones in the neighborhood of 8 homes. Soon 5 of the neighbors also purchased your Magnet, and this section of the back bay was "outdoor friendly" again! My father empties the "net" at least once a week if not more, because it is full! Looks like tea bags were emptied into them there are so many! Ihave also purchased additional Magnet(s) over the years for myself and family, and everyone is always amazed how we have no "bugs" living in a wooded area! We will be moving to New Hampshire next spring, and you can bet my Magnets will be moving with us! Thank you for this wonderful machine!! Gail R
Review RateFANTASTIC. A MUST HAVE IN MINNESOTA.
i LOVE my Mosquito Magnet! Couldn't enjoy my yard without it. Have owned one since I read a review in Consumer Reports over 20 years ago!
Review RateMosquito Magnets save the day!
My purchase of my mosquito magnet.....and this subsequent re-order of Octenol.....wow.....these products save the day.....day in and day out! We live by a lake and are surrounded by woods where those pesky little critters thrive......we have not been bothered by them at all.....and we have quite a bit of rain as of late as well! Thanks Mosquito Magnet!!! You're the best!
Review RateBest product ever
We can use the backyard again! Thank you Mosquito Magnet!
Review RateGood-Bye mosquitos
Worked so well, when I emptied out the screen trap it was filled with mosquitos. If they are in there, they are not on me! Yea Mosquito Magnet.
Review RateNew Patriot II purchase working great!
My first experience with Mosquito Magnet was hit or miss and very frustrating. I spent several hundred dollars on quick clear and many repairs to keep it running. I did so because the Mosquito Magnet eats up mosquitos. We live in Minnesota and as you know the mosquito is the state bird. I bought a new unit this summer, Patriot II and it is working great. The mosquito count is way down and the machine is crushing mosquitos.
Review RateHappy with the results this year
Happy with the reduction of the mosquito population!
Review RateHappy with the results this year
We purchased out Patriot Plus Mosquito Magnet last year, mid summer. Our first thought was that it was just ok. This year, however, we placed it in our yard in early May.The results have been very noticeable! We live on Northern Wisconsin and just celebrated the 4th of July week with our family, here at our home. Everyone noticed the reduction in the mosquito population and how nice it was to be able to sit outside. If there was a place to share some pictures, I could show you our last 21 day catch! Now if you could only come up with something to keep the deer from eating g my flowers
