It is possible to stay outside and not to hear noisy mosquitoes around – Mosquito Magnet Patriot will make your outdoor fun free of these biting insects! All you need to do is just switch it on and enjoy wonderful time outside. This mosquito trap covers 1 acre of area, cleaning it from mosquitoes.
The principle of Magnet Patriot action is build on the natural behaviour of mosquitoes. They are attracted to people by carbon dioxide (CO2) they emit. When they feel the source of CO2 in close location, they fly on it. Then some short-range attractants like body scent to determine the person to bite. For these insects Magnet Patriot seems as a big mammal due to special Counterflow Technology implemented in this device. The trap emits the amount of CO” typical for people, together with moisture and heat to resemble natural people’s presence. Additional attractant such as Lurex3 or Octenol intensify attraction, luring the insects right into the trap. After they are vacuumed in it, they die in 24 hours due to dehydration.
The choice of what exactly attractant is better depends on location. Lurex3 is better for Asian Tiger Mosquitoes that are typical for southern US regions, while Octenol is used for common mosquitoes that are widespread in the rest of the USA.
If to place Mosquito Magnet Patriot upwind, the majority of insects will be caught by it, so the chances that you will be bitten significantly reduce. Now their target is not you, but the trap, as its attractants are stronger than yours. The trap is made of durable plastic, wear-resistant kinds of metal, so it is suitable for using at any kind of environment. Thanks to long 50 foot power cord you can place the Magnet far from your family area, keeping it at safe distance from children. Even if you are not going to spend the time outdoors, it is recommended to run the trap round the clock, to stop mosquitoes’ breeding cycle.

I’ve got this trap two months ago preparing for summer, and found it very useful for my backyard. I can’t tell it kills all bugs around, there is still a chance that a few mosquitoes will fly to their real target, people. So some additional repellent is needed. But the Magnet trap considerably reduces the population of bites, especially after a few days of use. You will notice that there became much less mosquitoes in your outdoor area. (Jack Moor)
