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.
Our Patriot Plus here in Florida is catching mosquitos by the basketful! If they were blueberries we could make a pie! We keep ours running 24/7 all through the year as we live on 3 acres and mosquitos are a never ending problem. We hope to buy another unit to add to our one.

These attractants work better than any naturals I have used.
We live in the Interior of Alaska where mosquito's might as well be a bird of prey! They are BIG and thick and come out, with snow still on the ground in March. We bought a Patriot Plus and installed it per the directions and it started to make a difference within 12 hrs. Its now day 3 and I can walk out into my yard and not be swarmed by those little monsters! Its still not completely free of mosquito's but its a VERY NOTICEABLE difference! So if you are on the fence about buying one, I'd recommend it highly! It is an expensive piece of equipment but the monthly cost to operate it is far less than having a service come spray your yard. Well worth the investment!!!!
Mosquito magnets do work. I am allergic to mosquitos and could not be outside on my property without them.

I have used mosquito magnets for years and they absolutely work. This is the first time I purchased the Patriot Plus model which is the model that needs to be plugged in. We needed one for our vacation home and our property there is much smaller so we have access to an electrical socket. This model is easy to put together (as is the non plug in version) and started quickly. I saw mosquitos in the trap within a couple of hours. I believe this unit will be easier for continuous use since you do not need batteries to start it when you need to change the tank.
The R-Octenol is by far the best attractant for the Mosquito Magnet. The difference without it is amazing. I have 2 units on my property here in the Maine woods. I have no problem being out with these running. I would highly recommend the R-Octenol for anyone who is highly a target for mosquitoes.
Do I remove the Octenol attractant for the Patriot from its plastic package?
Question by: Eugene Wilkerson on Sep 10, 2021, 7:14 PM
The attractant shouldn't be removed from the plastic packaging, just the film on the back needs to be removed for it to be effective.
