Mosquito Magnet

Spending nine months out of the year indoors simply isn't an option for many property owners. It would kind of defeat the purpose of having potentially enjoyable outdoor areas. For many years now, Mosquito Magnets have allowed homeowners, farm owners, and people with other outdoor properties to reclaim areas for personal use that used to be dominated by mosquitoes and other winged pests. You, too, can take back outdoor spaces previously owned by mosquitoes, no-see-ums, black flies, and more - with these superior mosquito traps.

What are the main differences between the executive and independence models?
By Collin - Elite Deals Product Specialist on June 15, 2016

The Independence and Executive models feature the same basic design and ability to cover one acre of area, however the Executive model features a rechargeable battery pack in place of the 4 "C" batteries" used by the Independence model. The Executive also uses a "Smart" control system that allows it to learn the needs of your specific application, saving propane and allowing the system to idle when not needed.

Can any of these models be hooked up or hard piped into an underground tank? I'm trying to eliminate changing out a 20 lb cylinder every 21 days.
By Emily on October 3, 2013

I have a response from our manufacturer. They stated that their Mosquito Magnets cannot be hard piped into a large tank. They are only approved for a maximum of 20 lb LP-Gas cylinder. Please let us know if we can assist you any further.

By Dawn - Elite Deals Product Specialist on March 20, 2015

No, it does not. You will need to purchase or rent the tank locally. It uses a standard 20 pound propane tank.

I live off of the coast of Maine, which Mosquito Magnet would be best for me?
By Tommy on April 10, 2013

I would recommend any of the magnets. They differ in ease of use rather than how much you need to catch. What will make a significant difference for you is the attractant that you need to use. You will definitely need octenol. Octenol is made for coastal region species and northern region species. Your home falls in an area that meets both those requirements.

I have an acre to protect. A golf course of 25 acres abuts our property. Which Mosquito Magnet is best for my situation?
By Dawn - Elite Deals Product Specialist on June 16, 2014

All of them protect one acre each. The most convenient Mosquito Magnet is the Mosquito Magnet Executive as it runs on a rechargeable battery. This eliminates the need for it to be plugged in and allows for greater flexibility in placement.

By Lynn from FL on August 30, 2014
Can I use both Octenol and Lurex3 in one machine at the same time? I have Mosquitoes 24 hours a day.

No, you can only use one at a time.

I need to replace a dead charger for Liberty Plus. What exactly is the model # I need?

By Dawn - Elite Deals Product Specialist on June 18, 2014

The Freestanding Battery Pack Charger we carry on our website will work if you are sure you have a Liberty Plus. Please note this is the charger only and does not include a battery.

By John from Wautoma, WI on July 20, 2013
Can I run my Liberty Plus without the battery, using just the charger?
By Collin on July 22, 2013

Unfortunately, no. The charger is only meant to provide a trickle charge to the battery and is not designed to operate the unit on its own in place of battery power.

By Barbara from Cape Cod MA. on June 21, 2014
What is the difference between the mosquito Magnet LibertyPlus and the Independence?
By Dawn - Elite Deals Product Specialist on June 23, 2014

There is no real difference. The Liberty Plus was replaced by the Independence. They both are powered all season by just four "C" batteries.

How It Works

These traps use a really simple, yet ingenious combination of science and insect behavior to help rid areas of annoying bugs. To put it simply, biting insects generally identify potential meals (in this case people) by the carbon dioxide we give off. Mosquito Magnet traps use a normal propane tank and catalyze that propane, giving off a combination of carbon dioxide, heat, and moisture that fools biting insects into thinking they’ve located a human target. Bugs move in closer to investigate, and by the time they figure out that the trap isn’t a human being, they’re too close to escape and are sucked into the containment net by the vacuum force the trap generates. The winged predators dehydrate and die in the following hours, leading to an increasingly mosquito-free environment in the surrounding area over a continued period of use.


Now we’ll address common concerns some prospective owners have by identifying a few facts. First of all, the nature of the attraction utilized by Mosquito Magnets only attracts biting insects, so friendly insects like butterflies, grasshoppers, and other non-biting bugs don’t generally investigate the trap. Secondly, people in different areas have different pests and, while the trap uses the same basic principle in every case, attractants that are specifically tailored to attract certain pests can be added to the trap, increasing the catch rate. There are models that run with simple electrical cords from a household outlet and models that are cordless and operate on battery power. It’s important to note that many of these traps offer coverage of an acre or more, all of them offer silent, continuous operation that consistently decreases the pest population the longer they’re in use, and they are safe for operation near pets, in populated areas, or close to the house itself. This is widely regarded as the best mosquito trap on the market, and all Mosquito Magnets ship the same business day.


As a quick final note, there are a few add-ins to consider. There are attractants like Lurex and Octenol you can add to your trap to further attract regionally specific winged insects, replacement nets that keep your trap clear and operating at peak efficiency, and battery packs, CO2 cartridges, propane tank covers and more to outfit the trap for every season. Whether they’re for regular maintenance or to upgrade the trap, accessories are an important part of the trap’s function.

Every property owner would like to be able to enjoy their property freely. Some people think the price of that enjoyment is burning multitudes of bug candles, having some weird-blue electric zapper hanging overhead, or spending the summer doused in insect repellant. Other people opt for a much simpler, much more effective, and much more economical approach in the long run. Nothing allows you greater access to your outdoor areas and greater protection from biting bugs than by using a Mosquito Magnet insect trap to protect your family, friends, and your overall outdoor enjoyment.
