Ask & Answer
Mosquito Magnet Lurex3 is a newer attractant specifically designed for customers who have the Asian Tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) in their area. This attractant, like Octenol, is designed for use in conjunction with any model of the Mosquito Magnet mosquito trap. Unlike Octenol, though, Lurex has been formulated to simulate human sweat, which is a major attractant for the Asian Tiger Mosquito in particular. If the Asian Tiger Mosquito is the predominant pest in your area, Lurex is probably the most effective product for you.

What the Numbers Say

American Biophysics Corp. studies have shown that Lurex catches almost three times more Asian Tiger mosquitoes than Octenol. Lurex is a specially formulated, patent pending attractant developed specifically to attract the Asian Tiger mosquito. Lurex is made of natural compounds, it simulates human sweat, and it can significantly increase your Mosquito Magnet's catch rate.

As of 2000, the Asian Tiger mosquito had been found in 26 states in the U.S. and in the last ten years has migrated rapidly from the Southeastern states into the Northeastern states, Midwest, and Northern U.S. We recommend the use of Octenol for customers who live within about 10 miles from the coast, where salt marsh mosquitoes and no-see-ums are most likely the predominant pests.

Each of the Lurex portions will last 21 days, meaning that this 3-pack will generally last around nine weeks. After opening, as each sample nears the 21-day expiration date it begins to dry and crack and will lose its potency. Over the course of the nine weeks of expected product life, many owners find that they've significantly decreased the number of winged predators in their intended area and have really given their Mosquito Magnet traps a leg up in the fight against annoying pests - specifically against Asian Tiger mosquitoes.

Features
  • Set of three Lurex3 biting insect attractant packets

Is Lurex 3 good for Georgia?
By Dawn on May 20, 2014

Answer:
Yes, Lurex would be the correct attractant to use. You can view the Attractrant Map to confirm the attractant that is best for your area.
By Brenda from Harlingen, Texas on June 6, 2014

Answer:
I have purchased both Lurex 3 and Octenol and found the the latter to attract more mosquitoes.

The Lurex3 is supposed to attract the Asian Tiger mosquito, but when used had very few mosquitoes
in the trap. Perhaps I'm not installing the Lurex3 correctly.

The mosquito magnet itself is without a doubt the one of the best items in our backyard!

Are there Tiger mosquitoes in Northern Illinois

By Tommy on March 19, 2013

Answer:
They favor the southern parts of the US. Especially in the east. They have been slowly migrating north east, so it is feasible that you may have a few. It is not likely your local species, however.
