Item Description
Ask & Answer
Like other Mosquito Magnet traps the Mosquito Magnet Patriot Plus (MM4200) uses proven technology to produce astonishing results. In the Mosquito Magnet Patriot Plus, though, you get a huge coverage area without paying a huge price. More mosquito and airborne pest coverage usually means more money, but not with this outstanding trap.

The Mosquito Magnet Patriot Plus mimics a human by emitting a plume of carbon dioxide (CO2), heat and moisture, and an additional attractant, octenol. This precise combination is irresistible to female mosquitoes (the ones that bite), no-see-ums, biting midges, black flies, and sandflies. As the mosquito approaches hoping for a human, it is quietly vacuumed into a net where it dehydrates and dies. Silent, odorless, no mess.

By using the Mosquito Magnet Patriot Plus continuously throughout the mosquito season, you will be able to capture both day- and night-biting mosquitoes, thereby drastically reducing the mosquito population in your yard. If you're looking for the best function, the highest degree of convenience, and the best trap for your hard-earned money, then you're looking for the Mosquito Magnet Patriot Plus.

* Please Note: Propane tank is NOT included
  • Features the Mosquito Magnet patented Catalytic Converter - converts propane into carbon dioxide (CO2), heat, and moisture to simulate human presence

Should you run a mosquito magnet in the rain?
1 Answer
Mosquito Magnet mosquito traps are designed to operate under normal moisture conditions, including rain and sprinklers. However, use caution that your sprinkler or hose does not target the unit directly as this may cause damage to the unit. If severe weather conditions are predicted, remove the mosquito trap and store it out of the weather.

from Santa Cruz, CA asked:
April 20, 2016
I am close to buying a unit and have a few more questions. Can you please confirm the attractant I will need for Santa Cruz California which is on the coast and in the middle/cooler part of the state? I think we may need to two attractants. Can and do people use more than one attractant at a time? How long does an attractant last so I can determine how many to buy? Can an attractant last until next year If I purchased too many? We live up on a knoll covering 5 acres. Will we be satisfied with one unit knowing two would probably be better?
1 Answer
Octenol would be your best choice for the climate you are in, though you may need to switch attractants if the mosquitoes in your area do not respond to Octenol. You can only use one attractant at a time, but you can alternate them. The attractant has a shelf-life of 3 years. For 5 acres, you will likely need two or three units for results to be noticeable.

from Ocala, FL asked:
March 10, 2015
What are the main differences between the Patriot, Independent, and the Executive mosquito traps? Is it just the power source? We have an area that is approximately 0.7 acres. Which machine would be the best and most efficient to run? Our mosquito problem is bad 10 months out of the year so we would need it on most of the time.
1 Answer
Each of these models are capable of covering up to an acre with variations between both the net size and the power supply type. The Patriot is the base model utilizing a small sized net and requires to be plugged into a 110V power source in order to operate. The Independence utilizes a medium sized net, but does not require a 110V corded power supply to operate. The Independence runs off of 4 "C" sized batteries making it completely cordless. The larger Executive uses the largest net available, as well as includes a rechargeable battery to eliminate the need for a wired power supply, or replacing batteries. The Executive also utilizes Mosquito Magnet's "Smart Fuel-SavingTechnology" which can be activated to automatically turn the unit on and off during the day and night at which mosquito activity is typically lowest. For a better explanation of this, please view page 11 of the owner's manual seen here. For the most effective control, I would suggest the Executive.

from Boston, MA asked:
August 10, 2014
Why does the plug in model need a propane tank? I thought the purpose of the cord was to eliminate the tank?
2 Answers
No, the corded units cost a little less. The propane tank is an integral part of the function of the unit in catching mosquitoes. The Mosquito Magnet catalytically converts propane from it 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. For more information on how Mosquito Magnets work, please refer to our Mosquito Magnet Information Guide.
Dawn - Elite Deals Product Specialist
on August 11, 2014
The propane emits Carbon dioxide which is what attracts the mosquitos. This in addition to the lure of scent makes the magnet very efficient. The electric cord powers a fan which sucks the bugs in once they approach the magnet, but without the propane CO2 they would not be attracted.

I've run the Patriot for two weeks and don't have much inthe basket. Is this normal? I followed the placement guidlines. Should I move it closer to my deck?
2 Answers
If you have followed the placement guidelines, then you should leave it placed where it is for now as it will take some time to get the full results. Within 7 to 10 days of continuous use, you will see a noticeable reduction in the biting insect population. And if you keep the trap operating in a well-chosen spot, in roughly 4 to 6 weeks you'll have caught the vast majority of the breeding females, meaning that the overall population will get much smaller and your catch rates will drop off considerably because there simply won't be nearly as many bugs around.

I've also run the Patriot for two weeks on Cape Cod. There is a modest accumulation of mosquitoes, though less than in years past. I think the reason is there was significantly less rain in the Spring and it is still too cold at dusk for the mosquitoes to come out. Good luck!!

What is the difference between the various Mosquito Magnet models, besides that the Patriot model needs to stay plugged in?
1 Answer
As you stated, the Patriot model must be plugged in and does not have wheels. The Independence model does have wheels, runs on four "C" batteries and advanced diagnostics. With the Independence, you also get 6 months worth of attractant for free. The Executive model has a rechargeable battery, wheels, enhanced diagnostics and also comes with 6 month worth of attractant for free.

Overpriced and expencive to run piece of junk
Don't waste your money!!! After the initial cost for the Mosquito Magnet Plus $330 one has to factor in the cost to operate the machine. Which is about $150. That includes 4 gas refills and mosquito lures. All the expanses would not be a problem "IF" the machine worked. But that is a big "IF". The mosquito catch is very minimal and in order to be outside one still has to use conventional repellents. It just defeats the purpose of buying the Patriot Plus. Also, good luck moving it around. The minute you pick it up the machine just falls apart. It is so cheaply made that none of the peaces have some kind of clamping device.

Does the trick - as long as it keeps running
This is my third Mosquito Magnet I have purchased. I have found it to be very affective against those little buggers. The only problem I have had with the product is that after a couple of years the device will not stay on. After following the trouble-fixes recommended the machine will only stay active for about 10 minutes and then stop. At first I thought it was a problem with my first unit - it being a couple of years old. After replacing it the second unit failed after 2 years. Since I do like the product - when it works - I bought another unit. We'll see how many years I get out of this one.
ProsThe product is effective against the mosquitoes as advertised.
ConsAfter about 2 years the product will not stay active for more than about 10 minutes.

Got rid of the mosquitos.
We have had the Patriot in place for over two weeks and only one person has gotten bitten by a mosquito the whole time. Dozens have been caught in the trap so we know it is working. We will see if this mosquito magnet ends up being as difficult to start in the future as others we have had.
ProsIt really works at catching and eliminating mosquitos.
ConsThe history of these has been they stop working after several cycles, sometimes a whole season, sometimes not.

On Long Island Sound in South Norwalk,Connecticut, nine Mosquito Magnets installed along the shores of our island" community have given us back our evenings to enjoy outside. We are a small private community of 103 homes and have marsh on two sides and the Sound on the other two. Tidal mud flats abound, the breeding grounds for no-see-ums (midges). You add in both marsh and fresh-water mosquitoes, and you have major bug biting problems. I first became aware of the Magnets through my job with Golf Digest magazine, and I realized that here was a way to regain our evenings. I divided the community into acre groupings because each Mosquito Magnet clears about an acre area. Nine groups of home-owners shared the expense, and we purchased nine machines that were activated the third week in June. The bags began to fill up almost immediately and after over six weeks of operations, have trapped millions, according to American Biophysics quantity measurements. We can now eat outside on our deck and not be driven in. Most of us spend our summers outside, and since the midge population began to crash, we can now adventure out without our bodies slathered in bug repellent.. There is no adverse effect on the environment, and it requires only a small amount of time to change the tank and insert a new octenol cartridge about every three weeks, no sacrifice at all to pay for bite-free evenings.

I have to say I'm really impressed with the way your product works. Last night was the first night we ran it. Even with the wind and rain it managed to catch approximately 250 mosquitoes, 500 no-see-ums (which I didn't even know we had). I set the bag up like a bird cage in my office so that everyone who was skeptical could see what I call the 'New Hampshire State Bird'.

I have a lake property in Central Minnesota in the Brainerd Lakes area. Mosquitoes are always a problem in Minnesota, especially where there are heavy concentrations of water like the Brainerd Lakes area. This year started out as an exceptionally bad year for mosquitoes in Minnesota. We had heavy spring rains that have lasted throughout the summer and the temperatures have been significantly above average. The heavy rains and warm temperatures during the spring created the ultimate hatching environment for millions upon million of hungry Minnesota mosquitoes!<br><br>I declared war on mosquitoes during early June when the mosquitoes where so bad that my family, especially my 3 and 5 year olds, could not be outside without being literally attacked back into the cabin. I am currently managing mosquitoes on my property using two methods: First, I am having a professional mosquito control company spray every two weeks, and second, I have purchased a Mosquito Magnet". I have to tell you, my family is thrilled with both as the effectiveness has been incredible. Even with the bi-monthly spraying, my "Mosquito Magnet" has collected an amazing volume of the blood sucking beasts. In total, based on American Biophysics measures, I estimate that I have collected approximately 100,000 mosquitoes in 4 weeks! This is an incredible collection of mosquitoes that you have to see to believe. I have gone from having mosquitoes chase my family back into the cabin to maybe having one bite per weekend per person! Also, another great benefit is that we no longer have to apply "bug spray" to the kids or ourselves.

We have already received our mosquito magnet. And after using it for 3 weeks, I have to say it is the most wonderful product created. We saved the first batch of mosquitoes for Ethan to see. He now can go out and play in our yard without fear of having hundreds of mosquitoes after him. In just one week, that entire bag was packed full of mosquitoes . . . and I mean REALLY full. We've only had one emergency visit for Ethan since we first hooked up the Mosquito Magnet and that was when he went to his grandparents home and got one bite. We've had a lot of members in our Church ask how the Magnet is working out and have placed a Praise in the church bulletin about the Mosquito Magnet.<br><br>Thank you from the depths of our heart for sending us the machine so very quickly. Most especially, Ethan thanks you. For his second birthday he was actually allowed to play outside with his friends. You can't imagine how much this means to us. With all sincerity . . . Thank you. And may God bless the lives of the people who created this wonderful machine and for people like you who made it possible for us to own one. It is wonderful taking my son outside to play with his friends instead of having him watch them play and have fun from his window.

According to your calculation of 37,000 mosquitoes per inch of net, we captured more than 200,000 mosquitoes in the first six weeks. We live on a very wooded lake ridge, and the weather has been hot and wet (perfect for breeding). This is the first summer that we have not been chased inside by the Minnesota State Bird. After the initial six weeks the number of mosquitoes captured has dropped off by about 75% telling me that we have really cleaned out the area.
