Mosquito Magnet Pro - mosquito control for entire your yard

There is nothing more frustrating than being harassed by mosquitoes and other biting insects when you are trying to enjoy some relaxing time in your backyard. Whether you are entertaining guests on your deck or at your poolside, barbequing a tasty steak, tending to your garden, or just sitting back in your hammock enjoying some quiet time, mosquitoes are unwelcome and troublesome intruders. Fortunately, there is now a solution to back yard mosquito control that actually works!

The Mosquito Magnet Pro Mosquito Trap utilizes the documented attractiveness of CO2, moisture, body temperature (thermal imaging), octenol, and airflow in an effective design to attract, capture and kill mosquitoes and other blood-seeking flying insects. Home / backyard mosquito control has never been better. Similar traps have been in use for years by universities, government monitoring programs and researchers around the world. The Mosquito Magnet Pro Mosquito Trap uses this traditional trapping approach combined with the latest in research, to turn the female mosquitoes' natural hunting techniques toward seeking out the trap and facilitating capture in a product that private homeowners can use.

How it works

All warm-blooded mammals, including humans, exhale carbon dioxide (CO2) as they breathe. To mimic the breath of a human, The Mosquito Magnet converts propane to CO2, through the use of proprietary ceramic catalyst. The CO2 is released into the air in a plume that sends a scent trail inviting mosquitoes inhabiting your back yard or outdoor living space to the trap. Scientists consider carbon dioxide as the single most important cue used by mosquitoes for locating a source of blood (female mosquitoes can detect a host to feed on at a distance of 20 - 40 yards!). Carbon dioxide serves as the most important long-range attractant to the trap.

As a mosquito converges on the trap, it is further attracted by temperature, moisture and octenol stimulants. The body of the trap is slightly warmed to simulate the temperature of human skin. Once the mosquito lands on the trap, it is caught in the vacuum of the powerful fan and sucked into the trap from which it is unable to escape. It quickly dehydrates and dies.

Many species of mosquitoes do not travel far from where they hatch during their short life cycle. Continuous use of the Mosquito Magnet in one area can literally collapse the mosquito population over an area of up to 3/4 acre, virtually eliminating biting mosquitoes. This is accomplished by both immediately removing biting females from the area and by eliminating them from the breeding pool. Fewer mosquitoes laying eggs means fewer mosquitoes period!
