With the Mosquito Magnet® Patriot Plus, you can establish a defense zone for your home or business that drastically cuts back on the breeding population of biting insects. This CO2 mosquito trap targets all the biting insects you hate – mosquitoes, midges, no-see-ums and black flies. By using a mixture of attractants, including moisture, heat, CO2 and special scents, the Mosquito Magnet® lures biting insects to the machine where they’re sucked up inside the trap, ultimately dying from dehydration.
This unique mosquito trap is backed by 15 patents and more than two decades of research and innovation. The technology in Patriot Plus has been proven to effectively break the breeding cycles of mosquitoes. Each trap covers about 1 acre, requires a propane tank, attractant packs and nets, and it’s backed by a 1-year limited warranty.
Best used for:
Yards & Lawns
Restaurants & Bars
Resorts & Hotels
Outdoor Work Areas
Schools & Daycare
Government & Militray
Outdoor Sales Centers
How It Works Mosquito Magnet® traps work using attractants that draw hungry, female mosquitoes, black flies, no-see-ums and midges to the machine. Once the mosquito flies close to the device, the CounterFlow vacuum sucks the insect into a net inside the trap. The powerful vacuum holds the mosquito in the net, where the insect dehydrates and dies. Each trap provides about 1 acre of control.
CounterFlow Technology Mosquito Magnet® machines use CounterFlow Technology to push out a trail of odorless attractants while also creating a powerful vacuum that traps mosquitoes and other insects.
CounterFlow Technology - follow the steps below:
Target These Unwanted Insects The Mosquito Magnet® Patriot Plus will help you control these insects in a one-acre area emanating from the trap.
3x Larger Net The Patriot Plus CO2 mosquito trap features a large, rigid net which allows you to capture more mosquitoes between changes. In total, its three times bigger than the original Mosquito Magnet® Patriot!
Extra Long Power Cord The Patriot Plus features a 50-foot power cord, which allows you to place it conveniently on your property. For best results, place the trap between your property and a known breeding area. .

"Works great. The net was almost full when the 1st tank of propane ran out. Using the R-Octenol in Northwest Wisconsin, (and it) has worked very well. Can be outside at sunset, and I don't even get bit." (Review from Up North Guy) Read More Reviews »

Poor Quality and Reliability is all I can say. Unit only lasted one season and now doesn't work. Even when it was working the unit is constantly shutting off and has to be restarted.
Thank you for sharing your feedback. Traps should run consistently as long as there is propane in the tank attached to them. Typically, a 20 lb tank will last between 18 and 21 days. If a trap is turning itself off more frequently than this, please contact us directly at 800-953-5737 for troubleshooting assistance, we're happy to help!
I’ve had it here in Coastal Florida for almost a month now. The propane tank went out today. It lasted 25 days. I only checked because this evening we noticed no- see-ums again. It did take a couple weeks to really see a difference but it made our outdoor life much more pleasant. I changed tanks a half hour ago and once again it’s pleasant on our lanai. We did have to move it several times to find the place where it was most effective. Four to be exact. My wife ie happy. End of story.
In the first couple of weeks, I have watched the bag fill with more no-see-uhms then I could imagine. I was able to wash my vehicle with a noticeable difference of not waving of the flies and mosquitos. Glad I bought it.
Our Keys living is much nicer with the mosquito magnet! Makes a world of difference in the summer! Being outdoors is so much more pleasant. This is our third magnet in twenty years. They have all worked great. Wore them out down in the Florida keys!
Definitely a good product, well made, I bought it for the black flys it has done a good job
Not too thrilled. The first month we had a basket full and that did seem to reduce the mosquitoes but I hadn't started it till mid fall after mosquitoes were absolutely crazy. After that first month I may have caught another half basket with the suckers still going blood thirsty. Anyway the beginning of spring came this year and I fired it up. I maybe caught about 20 since then and it's now summer. The only reason I think I have them slightly controlled the time is because I now have 2 bug zappers zapping away all through the night and day.

We have had our mosquito magnet for about 1 month. Starting to notice a difference more recently. We have caught 1000s of mosquito already and hope to get more and more every month.
This is our third Mosquito Magnet in 20 years. All three have been great. Living in the Florida Keys, mosquitos are a big problem and a part of our life! The Mosquito Magnets have been the only thing that Works! We run ours 24/7 and it makes a big difference in our outside time. Nothing is or will be100%, but this is the closest to it! I wish more people (and the county) in the Keys would invest in them! It’s environmentally friendly too!
The wet spring certainly brought its share of gnats and mosquitoes- did not purchase this until mid May which is later in the season than you are supposed to start using it. Took a couple of days to begin working but has made such an improvement!! I have it set up by our garden and pergola - so much nicer to be out weeding or entertaining and not be eaten alive by the bugs!
Many people believe that mosquitoes are simply annoying insects that bite and leave an itchy bump that will simply disappear in a few days. What they don't realize is that these tiny pests can carry deadly diseases that cause thousands of illnesses and deaths each year. With the increase in international travel, no one is immune.
