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.

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.

Does not work By None

It doesn’t work. Have not caught a single mosquito the entire season. Went through 2 propane tanks. It attracts them by the hundreds but can’t suck them into the unit. Tried cleaning and blowing it out with no success. Will try again next season early on but don’t have much hope

Thank you for providing this feedback! We are sorry to hear your experience did not reflect the high success rates typically associated with this product. Does the trap have a sufficient vacuum? The first thing to check is the opening of the trumpet and the large fan to make sure these areas are free of insects, cobwebs, leaves and other debris. We also recommend holding a tissue flat in your hand under the trumpet. Do the corners lift lightly? If so, the vacuum is strong enough to catch mosquitoes. This website provides other helpful tips for checking the vacuum and ensuring the trap is positioned properly for the best catch.

We hope this information was helpful! Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at (800) 953-5737 with any questions or for additional assistance.

Amazing product By Lisa and Brendan

We purchased the patriot plus mosquito magnet for our cottage early spring this year. Sitting outside at the cottage during the summer months in years past was simply impossible - we would have been eaten alive by mosquitos. This year - no annoying mosquitos - wow! We also installed a zapper for good measure and we can now sit on our deck relaxing, garden without regretting it and use our hammock. We are sold on this product - it works very well and we would definitely purchase another. Thank you.

Disappointed. By Ryan

Ran the MM Patriot Plus for 7 days and only caught roughly 300 mosquito's (45 / day). The vacuum was not strong enough as mosquito's could fly around the vacuum nose without getting caught. The ones that did get caught flew up the vacuum nose not just around it. The MM attracted the mosquito's but the catch rate was disappointing. I have now setup a zapper that is zapping roughly 20 times a minute . My fingers are crossed that I can reduce the volume in my yard as it's currently unlivable. Ryan from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Hello Ryan,

Thank you for providing this feedback! We are sorry to hear the desired results were not seen. Placement is key for a great catch. We recommend keeping the trap 30-40 feet away from people areas so the mosquitoes fly to the trap rather than humans. It should also be kept upwind as mosquitoes fly upwind looking for a meal.

Our Consumer Relations Team is happy to provide additional assistance. Please feel free to contact us at (800) 953-5737.

So far pretty good. By Jerry

Still on first tank of propane, but so far so good. Hard to tell if there are fewer mosquitos. The trap is filling so I assume there are fewer. A good rating so far.

A great buy, well worth the $$ By Karen R

It is definitely working, without a shadow of a doubt. You just have to check the baggie! However, we have noticed that the machine appears to keep switching off on its own. We have called about this and walked through all the checks, while on the phone, and everything was connected accurately. The CSR suggested that it might be overheating, so we are going to monitor it for a couple of weeks and only turn it on in the evenings, when the weather is cooler (currently up in the 30's here).

mosquito swatting continues By laurie

Completely disappointed to be honest. The machine is not cheap, and the need for continued propane keeps the cost going! However, I was excited and thought it would be worth the cost to be able to enjoy the outdoors at dusk, etc. This has not been the case at all, the mosquitos are still crazy bad and I see them fly around the machine and fly away! The suction to which they are forced into the trap is not very strong, so they can buzz around it and then fly off. I really had my hopes up! I guess I need to be more particular when buying a product, NOTE to self; unless it says money back guarantee, it probably doesn't work!

Hello Laurie,

Thank you for providing this feedback! Placement is key for a great catch rate. It is important to keep the trap 30-40 feet away from people areas to ensure the mosquitoes are attracted to the machine rather than humans. The trap should also be in-between the people areas and breeding locations.

We would like the opportunity to learn more about this experience and provide further assistance! Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at (800) 953-5737. We are happy to help!

Over all, great. By Brian

I've had a few of these now. Wouldn't be without it. When they're working, they're great. You really need to blow them out well. The biggest problem is that the propane in Canada burns so dirty, it leaves built up carbon deposits. Then it has a hard time to start up. I usually get about 5 years out of each one that I've had. Hope this helps others.

not happy By drm

ran for 2 weeks and did fine...caught plenty of mosquitos. Last week kept shutting off. Propane tank fine, still tried another...still shuts off. Been trying to get ahold of Woodstream with no luck...just on hold forever. Also there was no cartridge in the box when opened. Sent an email but still haven't received. So to sum up...spent $400.00 and unit does not work after 2 weeks

Hello David,

Thank you for providing this feedback! We are very sorry to hear of this experience. It's very possible the OPD valve is locked out, which can happen if the propane tank is turned on too quickly. To resolve this, please follow the step-by-step instructions below.

• Turn off the propane tank. While doing this, make sure to count and remember the number of rotations that it takes to close the tank.
• Disconnect the regulator and listen carefully – Is there a hissing or release sound?
• If you do hear that sound, keep the tank turned off, thread the regulator in and out of the tank, and listen for the sound again.
• Keep doing this until you no longer hear a hiss or release sound – it may take several attempts.
• Once you are no longer hearing that sound, go ahead and reconnect the regulator.
• Remember how many turns it took to close the propane? Open the propane now, but only 2/3 to ¾ of the way.

Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at (800) 953-5737 with any questions or for additional assistance.

Q.I have a red flashing light what does that mean? And do I know when to change the cartridge? Thanks I absolutely love it.

The trap will flash slowly when it is going through its warm up phase. A fast flashing light indicates a fault or that the tank needs to be changed. We recommend changing the propane tank and the attractant every 21 days. The net can be emptied and re-used as long as it is free from debris or holes. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at (800) 953-5737 with any questions or for additional assistance.

Q.Would it be possible to get this before August 11, 2018? Is there a store I can pick it up from? Thanks. Justyna

Our products are offered at several local retailers such as Home Hardware, Canadian Tire, Lowe's, True Value, Beaver Lumber and Home Depot. If the trap can not be found locally, we recommend our website or Amazon.

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.
