With the Mosquito Magnet® Patriot Plus, you can establish a defense zone for your home or business that drastically cuts back on the breeding population of biting insects. This CO2 mosquito trap targets all the biting insects you hate – mosquitoes, midges, no-see-ums and black flies. By using a mixture of attractants, including moisture, heat, CO2 and special scents, the Mosquito Magnet® lures biting insects to the machine where they’re sucked up inside the trap, ultimately dying from dehydration.

This unique mosquito trap is backed by 15 patents and more than two decades of research and innovation. The technology in Patriot Plus has been proven to effectively break the breeding cycles of mosquitoes. Each trap covers about 1 acre, requires a propane tank, attractant packs and nets, and it’s backed by a 1-year limited warranty.

how it works
How It Works Mosquito Magnet® traps work using attractants that draw hungry, female mosquitoes, black flies, no-see-ums and midges to the machine. Once the mosquito flies close to the device, the CounterFlow vacuum sucks the insect into a net inside the trap. The powerful vacuum holds the mosquito in the net, where the insect dehydrates and dies. Each trap provides about 1 acre of control.
CounterFlow Technology Mosquito Magnet® machines use CounterFlow Technology to push out a trail of odorless attractants while also creating a powerful vacuum that traps mosquitoes and other insects.
counterflow technology

CounterFlow Technology - follow the steps below:

  1. Set the trap in your yard. It should be 30-40ft away from people and in the shade.
  2. Trap's Patented technology converts propane to CO2. The CO2 released, attracts mosquitoes to the trap.
  3. Secondary attractant mixed with CO2 attracts mosquitoes. It increases the mosquito catch rate by up to 10 times.
  4. Patented technology. Mosquitoes get sucked into the plume and into the net.
  5. Mosquitoes dehydrate and die in the net. Once in the net, mosquitoes will dehydrate and die within 24 hours.
  6. Enjoy a mosquito free backyard!
Target These Unwanted Insects The Mosquito Magnet® Patriot Plus will help you control these insects in a one-acre area emanating from the trap.

Five Stars "Works great. The net was almost full when the 1st tank of propane ran out. Using the R-Octenol in Northwest Wisconsin, (and it) has worked very well. Can be outside at sunset, and I don't even get bit." (Review from Up North Guy) Read More Reviews »

It is a great product. By None

It is working. Within the first 21 days I had to change the net twice as it was full of mosquitoes. I can sit outside and have my coffee in the morning without being bothered.

It works, but.... By Dave

It didn't work when I received it, so it was sent away for service. It took about 10 days to get it back, which was annoying but it started right up when I got it back. As for catching mosquitos - in 2 weeks of 24 hour operation, there's probably 50-100 dead ones in the trap. The plastic on the bottom of the net is just about covered with dead bugs. Not sure if that's going to have an impact on the bug population or not, but we're still getting eaten alive.

kind of expensive when it only seems to make a difference during the day but not at night. By suzanne

After two weeks of having it on at the cottage the mosquitoes seem to be better during the day, so I think it does help . At night it does not seem to make a difference we still have to go indoors when they start to swarm at night.

Works well, not perfect, expensive to run. By Tweebling cyclist

It caught thousands of mosquitoes last year and so far this year hundreds so it works well. Fan could be stronger but that's a trade-off on electricity use since it is running 24/7. It is expensive to run. Propane plus Octenol renewed once a month runs around $45/month here in Maritimes Canada. Plus initial cost of the machine. It does not clear an acre as claimed. We have it near the outside deck and it does help there but still have some mosquitoes. I still use botanical pyrethrin spray around the deck but it would be far worse/impossible out there without the magnet. It will catch blackflies too since most biting flies are attracted to CO2 and even CO1 (car exhaust). Forget those ridiculous UV bug zappers, waste of $$ and they kill any bugs, even beneficial ones that are attracted to UV which mosquitoes are not.

We Love our Mosquito Magnet! By Greg

We live in the Maritimes and ordered our Mosquito Magnet Patriot Plus on Friday evening, June 14. It shipped on Monday the 17th and we received it two days later. Setup was very easy and within two weeks we saw an incredible decrease in the amount of mosquitos. We live next to the water and have tried other products to reduce the mosquitos, without much success, but the Mosquito Magnet is incredible. We now can go outside, day or night, and enjoy our property without being bothered by the mosquitos. We love it and highly recommend the product!

Works great By Ccr

In three weeks we’ve emptied 2 full baskets...I’m guessing that has to be about 8-10,000 mosquitoes and we can definitely notice a difference. We can actually start sitting outside now.

Q.What is included and not included in the patriot box mosquito magnet.

When purchasing the Patriot Plus Mosquito Magnet®, the trap will include one Octenol attractant cartridge and the net. The propane tank is not included. 

Q.Can you tell me the current draw that this machine uses please.

This trap uses approximately 36 watts while starting, then about 3.5 watts or less during operation (roughly 84 watts per day). It is designed to operate 24/7 in order to interrupt the breeding cycle of mosquitoes in the area. 

Q.How long does the attractant and propane tank last on average? I plan to use this at a summer home that has power outages every once in a while but they normally last less than a minute. If the power goes out then comes back on will the Patriot Plus continue to operate as normal or would I have to reset something?

The trap will use AC power when starting up or if turned off and displaying the fault code. When the trap is running normally, it is generating its own power. A 20 lb propane tank should be changed every 20-21 days.
