Review RateUseless Item - Useless Customer Service
Mosquito Magnet + 5 Months Use = ZERO insects caught. You've read that right. I was excited to try the Mosquito Magnet, and purchased it in Spring. It hasn't worked. It has not caught one single insect of any kind. I followed the instructions meticulously. I placed the trap in different locations. And still, I see mosquitoes hovering within 10 inches of the Mosquito Magnet with NOT ONE INSECT CAUGHT. I worked with customer service, and this is my experience: First, they re-sent me a PDF copy of manual (which I had followed). Second, I had to upload a video of it not working. Third, I had to PROVE to them where I purchased the Mosquito Magnet (I bought it on this website) with an argumentative Customer Service Representative. Fourth, I sent it in for repair. Fifth, their solution is "buy more of our stuff" to fix the other stuff that doesn't work. It's been an extremely disappointing waste of $300+ dollars, multiple tanks of propane, and hours of my time.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateUnit failed after 2 weeks
I purchased the Patriot Plus online on June 28, and fired it up the following weekend. Worked perfectly for 2 weeks (trapped quite a few mosquitos), then stopped working. No fan, no ignition, no power to the unit. I contacted customer service, and they offered free replacement (since it was within 30 days of purchase), which I accepted. Because it is installed at my cottage, I asked that they send the replacement immediately so I could swap the new one for the failed one when I returned to my cottage next weekend, but they refused, indicating that normal procedure is to send replacement upon their receipt of the failed unit. They did agree to send the new one upon receipt of proof of return of the failed unit (via UPS tracking #), but that still results in a further delay in activating the new unit. Since mosquito activity diminishes significantly by mid August, the additional delay is significant. Since this is my 4th Mosquito Magnet, I expected them to honor my request to send out the replacement immediately. Disappointing response.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateDoes not work
The product is not working as described at all, and it has been set up for over a week. No mosquitoes have been trapped, but they are around, as one bit me as I checked the machine. We followed instructions exactly (in shade, away from people). I was so hopeful, as TX mosquitoes are viscous, and we really wanted to enjoy our evenings on our patio.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateKeep your money. Wish i could get a refund.
Bought in begining of summer. Asside from this thing being touchy to even get working. Its been 3 months. It doesnt collect anything. Whole summer maybe 20 mosquitoes in there. Biggest waste of money Ive ever spent.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We are sorry to hear about this experience and will be happy to help.
Placement is a big factor for a successful catch rate. The trap should be located upwind of breeding areas and at least 30-40 feet from human activity areas such as a deck or pool. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-953-5737 for additional assistance.
Review RateFinicky device, not worth this kind of money
Not impressed. Have been through all three attractants, sometimes in combination with each other. Mosquitoes gather, but aren't caught. Just changed propane tank and the trouble LED flashes. Called for tech support and was told to disconnect and reconnect the propane hose several times (nowhere in the manual) to no avail. Tech kept asking if she could get off the phone...no interest in helping.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Jennifer : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience. After the trap goes through the warm up process, there might be a fast blinking red light on the switch. If this occurs, the first thing to do is to shut off the trap, disconnect the power cord and regulator and allow the trap to cool for at least 15 minutes. After this has been completed, we recommend using two Quick Clear Cartridges and a new propane tank and start the trap up again.
This product is covered under a 30 day return policy and a one year warranty with a copy of the original purchase receipt. If additional assistance is needed, please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at (800) 953-5737.
I just bought this on 7/18/17 and put it together on 7/19/17 and I still can not get the damn thing to work. Its starts up just fine, goes through the warm up period with the light a slow steady flash then the light goes into a fast flashing mode which according to the book is an error indicator. I am passed pissed. After having saved up to get one of these I end up with a piece of junk made in CHINA......... Now i get to spend more of my time packing this thing up and shipping it back after spending hours trying to get the damn thing to work..... To hell with your warranty MM...... Its on its way back to you....Response From Mosquito Magnet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateWaste of Money and Time
This product did not work at all - I've had it running for over a year. I first had it in my yard, but still had mosquitos coming into the house and none in the product's catch bin. So, I moved it to inside my pool cage and I still have more mosquitos coming into the house than I have ever found in the catch bin. The little electric counter-top mosquito catcher entices more mosquitos than this product. Very, very disappointed. Live in Florida and the mosquitos are brutal. I so wanted this to work.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We apologize for this experience and would like the opportunity to learn more.
Placement of the trap can make a very big difference in the catch rate. The trap should be placed upwind (prevailing winds) of breeding areas and at least 30-40 feet away from human activity areas. More placement tips can be found on our website at the link below.

Review RateWaste of money
I purchased a patriot plus last may 21. It didn't work as advertised. Set it up again June 1 this year. Went to change the propane tank June 21 and the led light on the switch was still blinking, the magnet never turned on. I've blown it out, turned it off and back on to reset it, all to no avail. Called the service center today. I'm told it's out of warrantee so I'll have to purchase a new one . Purchasing this looks like a waste of moneyResponse From Mosquito Magnet®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateNot working as advertised.
I've had it for a little over 2 weeks and considering a return if possible. I've changed the attractant as instructed since I live in the southern portion of the United States. The mosquito issue hasn't changed a bit and the trap barely catches anything. I haven't even had to empty it once yet. I opened the propane tank valve slowly as instructed and flipped the switch... it blinked for a few minutes and turned solid.Response From Mosquito Magnet®Lauren : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for sharing this feedback. When the trap is run continuously, it can take 7-10 days to begin to notice significant catches. It will take up to 3-4 weeks before the mosquito breeding cycle will be effected.
When the trap starts up, it will slowly flash a red light. Once it is operating, the red light will remain solid. The placement of the trap in the yard is also a key factor to achieving a higher catch rate.
Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-953-5737 so we may learn more about the placement of the trap and offer troubleshooting assistance.
