Mosquito Magnet® Octenol - 6 Pack


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, the Octenol Refill Twin Pack 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® Octenol is a secondary attractant that mimics human breath, drawing mosquitoes and biting insects to the trap. It is an alcohol-type chemical that has been deemed safe for humans by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, but it is a vital weapon to have in your arsenal when it comes to killing flying pests!

Mosquito Magnet® 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 by becoming entangled in mosquito nets, then dehydrate and die. This makes Mosquito Magnet® Octenol the hassle- free way of killing mosquitoes throughout the entire outdoor season. Sit back, relax and enjoy your favorite outdoor activities again, while Mosquito Magnet® does all the work!


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 R-Octenol 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.

Not effective in my wooded yard. By Janet

We still have mosquitoes even with the Mosquito Magnet and new Octenol attractants. We can't enjoy our wooded yard, because the mosquitoes drive us insane. It is such a bummer.

Great stuff! By BSmart

Even though I'm near the east coast, the recommended lures are not effective in area. These Octenol attractants do the job! I love checking my trap and seeing all the nasty little mosquitoes and no-see-ums in the net. Bwaaaahaaahaaa!

Happy in the Keys! By Keyzlivin

Very happy with this product down in the Keys. It helps greatly with the mosquitos and the no see ums. Nothing is 100%, but this scent and the mosquito magnet help make sitting out tolerable. I wish more people would invest in them.

As long as there are biting insects, I will always have my Magnet running!! By Gail

Have used the magnets in my home since they came out over 20yrs ago.Gave to my folks and they were equally pleased as they live on brackish water and seasons are known by the type of biting insects! We are now going to be traveling the road and plan to take the magnet(s) with us. A must have for any trailer excursion in my books!! Don't leave home without it!

Problem By Boppo

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 Levin

Response 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!

Q.What type of attractant is best for the Caribbean?

If your mosquiotes are active during the day, we recommend Lurex3, however, if your mosquites are active at night, we recommend using Octenol.

Q.Does your mosquito magnet attractant lure Aedes aegypti mosquitoes to the trap? We have A dengue fever risk in our area and are wondering if this product will help protect us against Aedes Aegypti mosquitoes?

Our lures have not been specifically tested for the Aedes Aegypti (yellow fever) mosquito.

Q.Do I need an attractant for my region in Alaska? I live in Chugiak, 25 miles north of Anchorage. If so, which one? Thank you!

We recommend using Octenol for attracting mosquitoes in Alaska.
