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 RateSatisfied with Mosquito Magnet
Out of stock items appear to be a problem. After removing all items on the first order and missing out on the 20% discount the second order went through without the attractant. Expect to see at least a 10 min. Delay on the help line. Independence unit working well. Noticeable difference when propane ran out.
Review RateWorking well.
Seams like a good product, no problems after first tank of fuel. I was hoping for more mosquitos but it is having an impact on the population.
Review RateBreakdowns and poor repair service equals poor value
I owned older models and when they died after many years of good service and mosquito catching, I decided to upgrade and bought two cordless Independence models. When they turn on, they catch mosquitos quite well, but they both would not ignite after not being used over the winter. BOTH OF THEM! Last year, I had them "repaired" by the local rep, only to encounter the same problem again this year. Coincidentally, Woodstream issued a recall notice on this model for a separate problem, so I shipped them back on the promise they'd fix both issues "within 5-7 days of receiving the machines". That was three weeks ago and when I called to see where my machines were at, after waiting for 20 minutes on hold, they said they got them but won't even look at them for another two weeks! Of course by that time, the mosquito population will be peaking! So, for both product reliability AND customer service, I'd rate Woodstream a 1 out of 5.Response From WoodstreambrandsJennifer : Consumer Relations Representative

Updating my previous review - it only worked for 1 month. Sent it back to be replaced, but have been out of stock since end of June. I was not advised and didn't find out until I phoned wondering where my replacement was. My purchase was refunded quickly, but I'd rather have the machine. I will probably give it another try, since it worked so well in the 1st month (plus I have a lot of supplies for it)
Review Rategreat product
I have owned this model for less than 1 month, and the number of mosquitoes it's trapped is amazing. I have an older model as well (15 yrs) and it's still catching mosquitoes. My property backs onto a swamp, so the addition of the independence trap is allowing me to spend more time outside.
Review RateBye Bye MosquitosI had bought a couple of Liberty machines originally, and now I have exchanged them for the battery operated Independence, which attracts and kills even more mosquito's than the Liberty models. We can now use our backyard at night, and only a few rogue mosquito's fly by, the swarms have been taken away by the Mosquito Magnet!
