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.
We hope this information was helpful! Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at (800) 953-5737 with any questions or for additional assistance. We are happy to help!
Review RateIneffective thus far
Ineffective, thus far. Its september, so I'm not going to put a new propane tank and attractant in. It caught some mosquitos, but me and my family were still harranged by them every time we tried to enjoy our modest back yard. I'll fire it up again next summer at the first sign of mosquitos and if it doesn't do the trick, I'll sell it. At $30 plus dollars a month to operate, I shouldn't have to buy bottles of Cutter to kill additional mosquitos, but that's what I just did so that we could try and enjoy these last few days of warm weather.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Susan : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to share this feedback and apologize that the pesky mosquitoes are still around. Our Mosquito Magnet® Octenol Attractant is best used in Northern or Coastal regions. If located in the South, our Mosquito Magnet® Lurex3™ may be a better option and provide a greater catch.
Trap placement is also an important factor in how many mosquitoes you can expect to catch. Please feel free to try our Interactive Placement Guide to aid in finding the best location in your yard.

Review RateNo catch
For reasons unknown I have zero catch this summer here in Michigan. Normally I have a catch early on and less as the trap eliminates them. This summer I have no catch.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Anthony : Consumer Relations Representative
