2. Extra-long Power Cord
A 50-foot, 12-volt power cord is supplied with your Mosquito Magnet Patriot. This is idealaway from your outdoor living areas, but near the mosquitoes' breeding and resting areas.
Lawn clips are provided to help secure your power cord and reduce any potentially hazardous conditions that a loose cord could create in your lawn.
3. Easy Assembly
Mosquito Magnet® traps are truly easy-to-set and operate. Assembling is done in just 3 quick steps. Once started, your trap will begin working immediately with noticeable results in 7-10 days. Allow a 4-week time frame to see significant reduction in your mosquito population. For optimal results, run your trap 24 hours a day initially in order to break the breeding cycle of the mosquitoes.
Increase Your Catch Rate With The Right 2-Month Accessory Bundle
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.
The Mosquito Magnet® Advantage
Mosquito Magnet® traps are backed by over 20 years of research and 15 patents that make our traps technologically advanced.
Mosquito Magnet® traps work by mimicking the way humans attract mosquitoes. Through its exclusive patented CounterFlow™ technology the trap converts propane into CO2, mixes it with the precise level of heat, moisture and attractant to lure mosquitoes to the trap and then vacuums mosquitoes into the net where they dehydrate and die.

Review RateWorks Great so Far
This is the second mosquito we've bought. The original one seemed to be a constant fight in getting it up and running on startup and Propane bottle exchanges. Of course this one is brand new but worked right the box and has already gone through one propane bottle changes without issues. It has already filled a basket of mosquitoes and I can't wait for it to fill another. I do forget the model I bought, but it was a smaller one, which runs off of electricity.
Review RateDidn't work
On for eight hours, not one single mosquito, however they are biting me all around the mosquito magnet. I inserted the Octenol as described. The whole start up went according to instructions.Response From Safer Brand®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
We appreciate the time taken to provide this feedback and apologize for the experience.
The trap should provide results within a week, and it takes about four weeks of continuous usage to interrupt the breeding cycle. Feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-800-953-5737 with any additional questions about how this product works.
Review RateMosquito free backyard
This is our 2nd mosquito magnet, the first stopped after almost 7 y of reliable service. We were happy with the 1st one so we purchased another one which works even better than the old probably because it is new :o) We are in South Florida and I use Lurex as attractant. Without it works too but the catch rate goes really up using it. Don't use Octenol in the South! BTW Our neighbor is happy too because also his backyard is free (almost) of mosquitoes.
Review RateNo product is perfect but you turn it into a SUPER BUG CATCHER
This is the second one I've owned, the first about 10 years ago and it was left with the sale of my home. This product is like a 401k, set it up and forget it, you have to let it do it's job and it does an excellent job with Black Fly's and mosquitoes. On a side note no product is perfect, so I've found an easy trick to make this product a SUPER bug catcher. All the bugs smell the unit but not all the bugs find their way up in the trap. I purchased fly strips for $3.00 and hang them next the magnet. The small percentage of black flys and mosquitoes that fly around and ponder will get caught by the fly strips. and now it's a SUPER BUG CATCHER!
Review RateWill let you know after new attractant
I've had the Patriot mosquito magnet out for 2 weeks, not 1 mosquito in net. Ordered bundle with a different attractant and it is being delivered tomorrow . Hopefully that will work. We are still being eaten alive by mosquitosResponse From Safer Brand®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative
Thank you for taking time to provide this feedback. We are sorry to hear about this experience and are happy to help.
Our Octenol attractant works best for mosquitoes that come out in early morning, and late afternoon. The Lurex3 works best for day biters. We recommend using our Interactive Placement Tool, which can be found at the link below. Proper placement of the trap is key for a successful catch rate.

Review RateNot what it used to be anymore
Mosquito Magnet – Not what they used to be….. About 15 or so years ago, my late husband happened on something called a mosquito magnet. We had just put in a pool and needed something to care for mosquito eradication in our backyard. The mosquito magnet was great! It took care of mosquitos in our entire back yard and probably some of each of our two next door neighbors. My husband and I raved to everyone about how great it was. A few people bought a magnet because of what they saw and heard from us. About four years ago, we gave one to a friend as a wedding present, but then was when we realized the mosquito magnets were no longer what they used to be. My friends’ never worked despite multiple calls and service attempts and different fuel purchase. Two years ago my mosquito magnet finally gave out and I went to order a new one – it never worked properly. After many attempts to get it to work properly and even installing electricity in my backyard since battery was no longer an option, in just two years (this past Summer) it completely conked out. The Company is not standing behind it - the best scenario is to pack it up and ship it somewhere, with a cost that outweighs the value of the whole thing. To all those whom we have raved about the mosquito magnet to, HALT! Our experience is now completely poor, unfortunately.Response From Safer Brand®Patty : Consumer Relations Representative

Review RateLong Time Fan!We bought our first Mosquito Magnet @ 10 years ago and loved it from the start! Since then we have purchased two more.....one for our cabin and one more recently as a Christmas gift for our daughter! The product is amazing and allows us to really enjoy our outdoor areas!
Review RateoutstandingThis is my second one and it works as good as the first one. The one before ,lasted for about seven years and I had it rebuild and made it a backup. The new one is great and does it job, we have a pool and living in Houston, I have no mosquitoes.
Review RateGarbageTried this for one season and was eaten alive. Bought the attractants and other refills. $400 late and we trashed this thing a year later. Save your money and buy four Off Lanterns then spend the rest on throwing a great BBQ since you'll actually be able to stay outside.Response From Safer Brand®Lauren : Consumer Relations RepresentativeThank you for sharing this feedback. We apologize for this experience and that the desired results were not seen with this trap. This feedback is very important to us and has been shared with our Product Manager.
