Mosquitoes, black flies, no-see-ums, and similar predators can ruin an afternoon outdoors, but these same insects also carry potentially deadly diseases.Unfortunately, we attract pests every time we breathe - literally: insects are attracted to humans by the carbon dioxide (CO2) we exhale.
The Mosquito Magnet catalytically converts propane from its to CO2, heat, and moisture. Hungry female mosquitoes - out for blood - mistake this combination for human breathing and investigate, then get vacuumed into the trap where they dehydrate and die within 24 hours.
But what about the males, you ask? Good question, but here's the thing: even if conditions are perfect (which they never are) mosquitoes only live about a week or two. Therefore, if you largely eliminate the possibility of new generations of biting insects by eliminating the egg-laying females, then you will largely eliminate the total biting insect population in a relatively short time period. When placed properly in your yard or on your property, the trap begins catching mosquitoes and other biting insects immediately. You can expect noticeable results from the Mosquito Magnet in roughly 7 to 10 days, and dramatic reduction in the total biting insect population over a 4-6 week period of continuous use.
But what about the insects we enjoy like butterflies, moths, bees, ladybugs, and the like? That's the beauty of this kind of trap. The catalytic conversion of propane into CO2 only attracts blood-seeking insects, so the more likeable bug residents of your outdoor area won't be attracted to the trap and won't be affected by its presence.
Here are a few elements common to every Mosquito Magnet model insect trap:
The Mosquito Magnet is the only biting insect abatement system with patented Counterflow Technology (tm) that will virtually eliminate the mosquito population in your yard.The patented Counterflow Technology used exclusively in Mosquito Magnets creates a plume of carbon dioxide (CO2), heat, and moisture that is emitted from the inner attractant tube, while the flared outer tube vacuums along the top of the CO2 plume without vacuuming up any of the CO2.
That's a pretty ingenious system by almost any standards. And that system keeps working for you 24 hours a day. No noise, no open flames, and no odor - just reliable, consistent reduction in the population of annoying biting insects in your outdoor area.
