Mosquito Magnet® Patriot Plus Trap

Featuring a design that is simple to set up and operate, the Mosquito Magnet® Patriot Plus makes it easier for you to sit back and enjoy the peace of a mosquito-free yard. This unique mosquito trap is backed by 15 patents and over 2 decades of research and innovation. The technology in Patriot Plus is proven to effectively break the breeding cycles of mosquitoes.

Constructed of heavy duty plastics and marine-grade materials, this trap is designed to withstand even the harshest of environments. The Mosquito Magnet® Patriot Plus trap is able to protect up to one acre of land. It is also backed by our 360° Customer Support program, allowing you to succeed in the endless battle against mosquitoes.

Key Features:

1. Self-Contained Rigid Net

The Patriot Plus features a larger-than-ever insect net to allow for increased performance and reduced emptying frequency. It is specially-engineered to maximize unblocked airflow, which is a critical component of the trap’s performance. In addition, this net allows for effortless disposal and replacement without having to come in direct contact with dead insects. For optimum performance, you should change your net every 21 days.

2. Extra-long Power Cord

For your convenience, the Mosquito Magnet® Patriot Plus unit comes equipped with a 50-foot, 12-volt power cord. This handy feature allows for proper placement of your trap, so that it is separated from your outdoor living areas and adjacent to mosquito breeding and nesting areas. To properly secure your power cord, Patriot Plus comes with lawn clips which help to reduce the potentially hazardous conditions that could be caused by a loose cord in your lawn.


3. Quick and Easy Assembly

Mosquito Magnet® Patriot Plus trap requires very little assembly, making it easy to set up and operate. In just 3 quick steps, you’re ready to begin operating your trap! Once turned on, the trap begins immediately targeting your mosquito problem, with noticeable results in as little as 7-10 days. You should begin to see significant reduction in your mosquito population in just 4 weeks. Running your trap 24/7 in the beginning will help break the mosquito breeding cycle to produce the best results.


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

CounterFlow™ Technology

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.

Disappointing By chris

After 2 weeks my unit has stopped using propane for some reason and over the 2 weeks it was running has caught very few mosquitos at all. A huge disappointment for the money paid. I would not recommend this unit to my friends and family.

too many bugs By roxie

It certainly is great at attracting and catching black flies and Mosquitos. However I think it overwhelmed by the volume of bugs. We have it at the cottage close to Algonquin Park and in 2 1/2 weeks the trap was filled to capacity but we still have lots of mosquitos everywhere. I think I need 2 of the devices to create a bug free zone in the middle of their area. It must have caught a million but my guess is there are a trillion in the neighbour hood. Oh yes they make great food for my tropical fish.

The best of the bunch By Mick

It works absolutely fabulous. Have had it going for a couple of weeks and our mosquitos are pretty much gone. We have had two other brands and there is no comparison. I am waiting for more inventory so I can buy another one for our cottage.

Works good By Ian

The machine seems to work decent for capturing mosquitoes but does no work well for catching other bugs such as horse flys. Would work better if it had more powerful suction

very good and effective By Cowgirl

I've had the Mosquito Magnet plugged in on our patio for about 2 1/2 weeks...haven't had a mosquito bite in the whole time. It has a quiet operation and is very effective. Only complaint is the Octenol only lasts about 3 weeks before you have to replace it...and they're quite pricey..but comfort has a cost, I guess!

Q.How can we tell if the machine is up and running? We followed all of the installation instructions then turned it on, but no light or sound. And what is the purpose of the little nipple to the left of the on/off switch?

We used to recommend cleaning out the trap with a Quick Clear Cartridge. This nozzle is where the cartridge would plug into. However, we no longer recommend using the Quick Clear Cartridges so this nozzle is no longer needed. When the trap is powered on, there should be a red light that flashes for approximately 20 minutes during the warm up cycle and then turns to a solid red after that. If there is no light on the machine at all when it is turned on, please contact our Consumer Relations Team at (800) 953-5737 for further assistance.

Q.Hello Can you ship it to France? The cost please? Thanks Pierre

Thank you for your interest in our products! At this time, we are only able to ship to locations within Canada from our website.

Q.Other than using the cylinders to keep the line clear, what other maintenance is necessary to keep the magnet running properly? How long will a Magnet last?

The net will need to be emptied to ensure that the trap is not becoming too full of mosquitoes. The propane tank and lure would be changed every 21 days. 
A trap will last an average of 3-5 years with proper maintenance.
