Mosquito Magnet® Octenol - 3 Pack

The right attractant can turn your Mosquito Magnet® into an even more powerful mosquito killing device. If you live in the northern half of the United States, Canada or in coastal regions, the Octenol Refill Pack with three cartridges is an effective as well as economical way to ensure you are getting the most out of your trap and providing your family with maximum protection against flying pests.

The EPA registered Mosquito Magnet® Octenol is a secondary attractant that mimics human breath, drawing mosquitoes and biting insects to the trap. It is an alcohol-type chemical that has been deemed safe for humans by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, but it is a vital weapon to have in your arsenal when it comes to killing flying pests!

Mosquito Magnet® Octenol attracts most mosquito species, including salt marsh mosquitoes, as well as no-see-ums and black flies. It will lure biting insects to the Mosquito Magnet® trap where they are captured by becoming entangled in mosquito nets, then dehydrate and die. This makes Mosquito Magnet® Octenol the hassle- free way of killing mosquitoes throughout the entire outdoor season. Sit back, relax and enjoy your favorite outdoor activities again, while Mosquito Magnet® does all the work!

Increase your catch rate up to 10 times!

Using a secondary attractant is critical to the performance of your Mosquito Magnet® trap, as the right attractant can dramatically increase the trap's ability to lure the flying pests. Once mosquitoes are drawn to the Mosquito Magnet®, they need secondary attractant, Octenol to hone in on the trap.


Choose the Right Attractant for your Region

Not yet sure By Susan

I have been running 2 mosquito magnets for 5 weeks and not yet sure how it’s going to work. Just had a hatch and there is a lot of mosquitos. I know it’s catching them but not yet sure if it’s going to make a difference. This is our first year with one so hoping they will work.

I think it works By Mick

Not sure if this is the reason our mosquito's have disappeared or if it is just the unit, but I for one am not taking the chance. I will keep buying the octenol.

Q.Is this the right type of attractant for the GTA area? I heard in some cases it repels them, depending where you are in North America.

We recommend our Octenol or R-Octenol for Northern or coastal regions.  These attractants work best for the night-biting mosquitoes found in these areas. When fighting the day-biting Asian Tiger mosquitoes (typically found in Southern, non-coastal regions), our Lurex3™ will typically provide better results. Feel free to visit our Attractants 101 page to learn more about which attractant will work best for you!

Q.How long does the Magnet Octenol Attractant work?

This attractant should be replaced every 21 days.

Q.Do unopened packages of Octenol have a limited shelf life? If so, how long is it?

Unopened lures have a shelf life of 3 years.
