Mosquito Magnet® R-Octenol - 3 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, R-Octenol 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® R-Octenol is a secondary attractant that mimics human breath, drawing mosquitoes and biting insects to the trap. Mosquito Magnet® R-Octenol works the same as regular Octenol, but lasts 40% longer - up to 30 days! This is ideal for Executive or Commander Trap owners running their trap on mode 4 as the propane tank lasts 30 days in this mode.
Mosquito Magnet® R-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, then dehydrate and die.
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.

Have used the patriot for 3+ years now with very excellent results. Still experimenting with which attractant works the best or a combination of attractants, But always pleased by excellent results and great service for mosquito magnet. You can’t go wrong by using their products it’s a game changer.
Review RateR-octenol best for central IL
Tried lurex in early months, low catch. Moved on to octenol and still had low catch. Finally tried R-octenol and been catching a lot! Mosquito population has dropped. Granted a little later in season, but I think it's better overall. Region is Central Illinois, which is right on the border of Lurex/Octenol.
Review RateOnly thing that actually works
Had tried everything. Foggers. Commercial spray treatments. Even old fashion blue bug zapper. Nothing ever worked. The mosquito magnet did the job. Amazing product. It’s basically set it and forget it too. Change the propane tank once a month and that’s it
Review RateWorks great !
Works great. Mosquitos don't have a chance against this killer machine !
Review RateThe Best!
Mosquito Magnet is the best. We have had one for about 10 years. It was a great purchase and it makes our fishing trips to the woods so much more enjoyable.
Review RateGreat Product
This stuff works!
Review RateVery effective, will continue to use.
Upon initial start up I had so many mosquitos in the net after about 3 days that I had to empty the net already so it could catch more! I have a swampy river overflow area right behind my house so the mosquito problem is quite intense, especially with the extremely wet spring we had. While it hasn't eliminated the mosquitos entirely in my yard, I can at least take the garbage out without getting carried away by them! LOL I also use a garlic concentrate spray around my deck (the trap is at the back of the yard) and that helps supplement for the ones that are still around.
Review RateI now have 3 executive traps for my 2 acres. They are working overtime.
I had some left over from last summer and it worked pretty well with the first tank of propane. The new, fresh R-Octenol attracted twice the amount of mosquitos, had to empty the trap in just 2 days. Wow. 'Still emptying every few days. I guess it matters that you get the freshest attractant.
Review RateGreat product!
Love my Liberty. Great product. Works better than expected. Thank you
