Mosquito Magnet Reviews / Testimonials

Please note catches may vary depending on region and trap location.

"When we bought our new home, the sellers told us we'd never be able to use the deck because the mosquitoes were so bad. Thanks to our Mosquito Magnet(r), not only did we enjoy our deck bug free every day and night, we even installed a pool in the yard!"

- Ted Larsen, Thomasville, NC

In April we moved here from Boston and bought a beautiful 1920's Tudor style home with a huge deck facing the woods with towering hickory and oak trees. A small stream runs through the property as well.

The sellers told us we'd have to use the "screen room" because the mosquitoes were so bad we'd never be able to use the deck. Well, enter Mosquito Magnet.

We started using ours in late April, well before the "season" begins. In a few weeks the Magnet began capturing baby mosquitoes and just kept on catching. I think getting "head-start" was a key to our success and total satisfaction. Not only did we enjoy the deck bug free every day and night, we even installed a pool. As for the "screen room," it's hardly ever used.

Good work and thanks!
Ted Larsen, Thomasville, NC


"We used to be prisoners behind our screened-in porch. Now, gardening is fun again and my family can swim in the pool without fear of being bitten."

- Victor Berardelli, Newburgh, ME

Mean Maine mosquitoes show no mercy - we were prisoners behind our screened-in porch but longed to go outside.

Our two Liberty Plus units have helped us enjoy the outdoors again. Gardening is fun now that we don't have to swat mosquitoes or suffer bites, and we don't have to stay underwater for fear that flying pests will bite the instant our head comes up in the pool.

We are so pleased with the product performance that I went on a local handyman radio program to give a testimonial for Mosquito Magnet(r) when the host started discussing how biting pests were ruining his home improvement project.

In addition to manufacturing an excellent product, I commend the company for its excellent customer service. It is comforting to deal with a firm that has real people answering phones, who know the product and who understand the true value of customer service.

Thank you,
Victor Berardelli


 

I live on the Banana River in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Once the sun set my family was a prisoner in our house. If we went in our pool we would be swarmed by mosquitoes. I almost had to breath through a straw and stay under water it was so bad.

With the Mosquito Magnet we can swim at dusk and at night. The mosquitoes are around the trap and not around us. I can't believe the number of mosquitoes and no-see-ums it can catch. I wish all my neighbors had them. Thanks for the great product. I now have one in the front yard, too."

"Just a short note to let you know that all great words said about the Mosquito Magnet are not enough. We have 10 acres of land on the Eastern Shore of Maryland (St. Michael's area). We have a large barn that we built for entertaining. I have a liberty model and two Pro Models running outside the rear area of the barn - this 4th of July for the first time we were able to sit outside and enjoy a wonderful 4th of July - Thanks very much."

"We live on a spit of land surrounded on three sides by a salt-water marsh. The mosquitoes were so bad that even at noon on a July day they would swarm and make our backyard unusable. I purchased the unit last year and for the first summer we were able to use the backyard. We can now play in the yard during the day and sit on the deck at night, with hardly a mosquito in sight. If I go across the street to the neighbor's backyard the mosquitoes are horrible!!"

"Due to concerns over West Nile virus, my elderly parents purchased a Mosquito Magnet for the cottage in May 2003. We set it up according to the instructions and in the first 3 weeks we estimate we caught 4,500 - 5000 mosquitoes - and this during a cold spring where we feel the mosquitoes have not really been a problem!

Each week since then the catch has been over a thousand mosquitoes and now includes deer flies as well. The machine works as advertised and we are thrilled.

"We've only used the Mosquito Magnet 6 days and it has literally changed our lives! We live in Delaware, in a marshy area, where mosquitoes make summer miserable. The Misquito Magnet has made our yard 'normal' in only these few days. In fact, we bought a second one two days ago. Great Product!"

"I replaced the net on my Liberty that I bought on June 21 for the first time last night. I kept the harvest in a zip lock bag. I estimate about 4,000 mosquitoes, as well as about 20,000 no-see-ums, (2) small spiders, (3) moths, and 4 or 5 different bugs that got caught up in the frenzy.

I have told everyone I know about my Liberty trap. I first purchased a Coleman Mosquito Deleto. In one week I caught some no-see-ums, a grass hopper a few other strange bugs and (2) mosquitoes. I returned the deleto and bought the liberty the same day.

Keep up the great work."

Sincerely,
James C. Smithville, NJ


"Although our yard is a haven of beauty with 200 rose bushes, an herb garden, magnolia tree, pecan tree, black walnut trees, many crepe myrtle trees, butterfly bushes, palms, ferns, many container plants and a swimming pool, I have never been able to enjoy it thoroughly because of the mosquitos in the summer. I could not even float in the pool without spraying every inch of my body. The past three weeks have been a delight not having to spray myself or fear the inevitable multiple bites to which I am highly sensitive.

I have recommended it to all my friends and co-workers. Thank you for giving me back the joy of summertime - my favorite time of the year."

"I am in a heavily  wooded area with an irrigated lawn and
a creek in hot and humid Brookfield, Wisconsin. It seems like a scenario in which I would never be able to use my yard. The Mosquito Magnet operates quietly, effectively, and efficiently…what more could we desire? I am considering a second unit to place elsewhere in the wooded area of the yard. Again, thanks for a great product."
John Aghbasian
Brookfield, WI
"In a year of record high mosquito numbers, the mosquito magnet has allowed us to enjoy our yard with fewer mosquitoes than ever. The butterflies and bumble bees continue to visit our garden because we no longer have to use hazardous and indiscriminate chemicals to eliminate the mosquitoes. It is a great invention."

"I live adjacent to a salt water marsh in Barrington, RI. Before buying our first Mosquito Magnet our kids were unable to play in our yard. After a week of operation the bag was completely full. I now have two units--one for the front yard and one for the back and we have claimed our yard back from the biting insects!"
G.G.
Barrington, RI
" Thank you for making it possible to reclaim my yard from blood-sucking pests.

I bought your smaller machine in early June, after an evening when nearly 100 mosquitoes got into my family room. For years, my yard has been infested with these pests, so that my wife and I have stayed inside during the summer months. When I saw your ad on TV, I decided to take action.

During the first 3 weeks of operation, the magnet trapped an entire bag of mosquitoes. Bugs were literally accumulating at the rate of hundreds per day. The second bag filled more and more slowly, until, during the 6th week of constant operation, the nightly haul was down to fewer than ten mosquitoes.

 The end result is that the mosquito population in my yard has been effectively decimated, thanks to this remarkable machine."

Congratulations!
Sincerely yours,

"We put 4 Mosquito Magnet Pro units out in May and got 5 or 6 inches of mosquitoes in each net in a single night. With the 4 Pro's, we'd fill up 2 of the one-gallon zip lock bags every night. The bite count is way, way down. They're still around but not nearly as severe. Our season starts around the second week of April and the mosquitoes are huge. Some are almost a 1/2 inch long. I grew up in Minnesota and these are bigger. We placed the units around the barracks, outdoor activity area, and at the entrance to the main gate. They sure do take care of the mosquitoes."

"Returned my "Mosquito Deleto" yesterday and bought your Liberty model. In only 12 hours of operation, your Mosquito Magnet had trapped more mosquitoes than the Deleto did in 15 days!"

"The Mosquito Magnets work as claimed. Two weeks after purchasing a Freedom model, I ordered a Pro model. In addition to catching lots of mosquitoes, our primary pest, the machines are also loading up on no-see-ums and white sox. I only wish that I had gotten them in May instead of June."

"I just had to add my testimonial to the huge list of happy Mosquito Magnet owners. We live on a very rural 5-acre lot on a lake in the outskirts of Orlando, Florida. For the first two years we lived there, we were inundated with mosquitoes and no-see-um's in the morning and the evening during the summer making going outside was miserable.

Last year we decided to purchase a Mosquito Magnet. Our Mosqito Magnet exceeded all expectations we had!! We had to keep emptying the bag every week or so and noticed an appreciable drop in mosquito incursions in the area covered by the Mosquito Magnet.

Two weeks ago, we purchased 2 more Mosquito Magnet Liberty's to provide additional coverage around our house and the results are almost beyond belief. For the last two years, Florida has been in a drought. However, this year is very different. Here in the Central Florida area, we have had rain every day for the last month and the mosquitoes are going crazy. I placed my three machines at the perimeter of the yard to give us overlapping coverage around the house.

I have had to empty the bags twice already, but I am not complaining! We have an almost absolute absence of mosquitoes around the house and the yard where the kids play on the swingset and swim in the pool. And the kennel for the dogs which used to be swarming with mosquitoes is almost devoid of the flying syringes. As soon as you get to the back of our property outside the coverage area, unless you have some heavy repellent on, you can feel the mosquitoes hitting you.

Last year, we could not use our front door because the mosquitoes loved the covered entryway. We would be assaulted on the doorstep and they would fly into the house by the dozens if we opened the door. Well, NO MORE!! They are all caught at the woodline before they can get to the house!!!

YOU MAKE AN OUTSTANDING PRODUCT!! If everyone in America purchased just one, we could probably wipe out the mosquito population in one year. I am considering purchasing one or two more to provide even more coverage down by the horse paddocks and am trying to convince my neighbors to purchase Mosquito Magnets of their own. "

"I am writing to thank you for inventing the Mosquito Magnet. My husband and I recently purchased a home in South Florida, which has a pool, hot tub, outside laundry room and is surrounded by tropical foliage. The mosquito population was unbelievable. The minute you stepped out side you were bitten. Imagine having to share the pool and hot tub with these pesky little things. The only way to entertain was to do so inside and what's the point of all these amenities if you can't share them with your friends. I also purchased this product for my dogs as well. There have been a few cases of the West Nile virus in domestic animals and I wasn t taking any chances. It has taken only 3 weeks to almost eliminate the population on our property. We found ourselves checking the net everyday for the first week, not knowing we would find such a large amount of dehydrated pests. I want to thank once again for creating possibly the best lawn ornament ever."

"We purchased a Pro model on 7-8-02 and had a cookout for 40 friends on 7-14, hardly a mosquito to be found in just 6 days of operation! We live in Boxford Massachusetts, where the 'town bird' is joked to be the large mosquitoes that breed in the swamps and vernal pools in the woods. Our property abuts 135 acres of town forrest so there is ample breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Before we purchased the Mosquito Magnet our children couldn't play in the yard with out being swarmed, now we can be outside anytime and never need to be concerned with mosqutioes. Thanks for your great invention."

I live next to a swamp in Alaska. When moose walk away from where they were standing a cloud of swarming mosquitos makes it look like they left a standing shadow. The Liberty model that we bought is constantly filled up with mosquitoes and other viper type bugs. In the past five days, the cloud of mosquitoes that hang by the door to the house, has gone down to one or two now. The unit was full and plugged with mosquitos and had to be vacuumed out daily, tens of thousands of them! I will be buying another unit come next spring to put on the other side of the property. "
Thank you,

"After reading about the Mosquito Magnet Pro in multiple issues of the Frontgate catalog, I was intrigued. I didnt feel comfortable shelling out more than $1300 to try another catalog product, however. Then I read an article about the MM products in one of my financial magazines (Kiplingers, I believe) and knew I just had to go for it!

We live in the mosquito-filled Midwest on a one-acre lot that borders a forest preserve. We have an in-ground pool and a yard that just begs for entertaining. In the 6 years that we have had the pool, we have NEVER been able to use it much past 6:30 in the evening because the mosquitoes eat us alive!

We started the Mosquito Magnet Pro a little before the Memorial Day holidays. A week or so later, we nervously sat on our pool deck (in swim suits, no less) and waited and waited and waited. We were all instinctively swatting even though a single mosquito never appeared. I was sure it was a fluke; this was impossible! So, we kept at it; night after night waiting. It's now passed mid July. I still think some massive mosquito swarm MUST BE coming for us but, (unbelievably) we are swimming and enjoying our yard late into the night bug free.

I still am amazed at how great this product works. It's one of the best investments Ive ever made. Thank you all so much!"

"This is the best piece of equipment anybody’s ever come out with in the history of Mosquitoes that’s effective. We tried everything and this is the best. To me the cost of the propane is minor. I live along the reservoir and we get plenty of no-see-ums. I haven't been bitten once since I installed my Liberty on June 16th 2002. We stay out in the yard until 10 or 11 at night. I brag about it to everyone. "

"I was just given the Mosquito Magnet Liberty as a gift. It was very easy to set up. I checked it the first night and was amazed to find the large amount of mosquitos which were already in the bag. After a week the bag was almost full. I have emptied it into a food storage bag to show all my friends. Your product works great, and I will always speak very highly of it. "

"In San Antonio the month of July has brought us approx. 25 inches of rain. While many are complaining about the biting insect, my family and friends are having great days of fun in the sun with my Mosquito Magnet protecting my backyard."

"The Mosquito Magnet Liberty really works! I have tired many things to kill mosquitoes, but they still infested out yard. We did not want to cut down our trees, but we did need to do something because life outside was painful. My children would have bites everywhere, I would get bit several times per minute. I decided to try the Sonic Web because it was 3/5 the price of the Liberty, and I was hoping it would work. Within two days (48 hours) it had caught 18 mosquitoes, I could kill that many by hand in 1/2. I opted to return it and get the Liberty. I was really hoping it was not another gimmick that I would have to return. I set it up and waited a 1/2 hour. I looked in the net I could see a few mosquitoes, and I was pleased. The next day I saw approximately the same number moving around in the net, thinking I had been ripped off, I lifted up the net to see about 2 inches of nothing but dead mosquitoes laying at the bottom. It was glorious!!! Two days later there was a noticable decrease in the number of mosquitoes biting. We do not live in a high-density mosquito area, but they do make life outside very unpleasant."

Thanks!

"Hi folks!! Thank-you for one of the best summer's that we had at our cottage. We are the proud owners of 5 magnets which we used all summer. One we have at our residence in the city and the other 4 are at our cottage. We enjoyed many more family time hours outside in the evening and we firmly believe that it was due to the mosquito magnets that we placed. We even had a thank-you from some workers that were doing some landscaping for us out there and how it was so much more bearable."

"I have three children whose ages are 3, 5, and 7. I purchased a swing set to keep them occupied in my back yard. However, after it was set up I found that I was unable to allow my children to play there due to the excessive amounts of mosquitoes (we abutt a wooded area). My oldest daughter has a severe reaction to bites, where it swells considerably. To salvage my investment, and protect my children, I purchased a mosquito magnet that I had seen on an in-flight publication.

The unit works great and we couldn't be more satisfied. We are now in the process of putting on a deck, so we can enjoy the outdoors. My wife was skeptical, but recently confessed that the unit is working and she is now a believer. My neighbors also have commented on the effectiveness.

My other neighbor bought a competitors unit, but after my conversation with him he is going to bring it back and purchase your unit.

I thank you and wish you continued success."

Sincerely,

"We purchased our Mosquito Magnet on the 4th of July and emptied a full bag of dead mosquitos on the 7th of July. I knew we had a bad mosquito infestation but didn't know to what extent. Already we can tell the difference in our back yard. In only three days we have gone from swarms of mosquitoes to just a few here and there."

"After seeing the Mosquito Magnet at work in several of the Coast Guard Stations, I decided to purchase this machine to help with the problems I was having at home. I thought 'if it can work this good in a coastal, low, marshy environment, it will do wonders at the house'. I am happy to report that it has done better than I thought possible. We can now sit on the deck without being attacked and driven back inside. My hats off to the Mosquito Magnet."

"My wife and I live in South Florida and with the heavy rains we have been experiencing this year, the mosquito problem had just gotten totally out of hand. Our back yard is is within 50 yards of two canals and at night the swarms of mosquitos would just take over our property. Even our poor dog was being tormented as soon as he went outside. Nothing we tried was working. We purchased your Liberty model and within a week the results were just unbelievable. Your product has given us back our backyard. We will finally be able to enjoy our summer barbecues without having to run inside to eat.

Thanks Again

This photo says it all. This is after the Liberty model has been installed for only 2 weeks. The bag is almost full!

I live in Luling, LA which is about 20 miles from New Orleans, and we have a lot of mosquitoes here. There have been several cases of encephalitis reported in the area already this year."

"In 1998 my wife and I decided to sell our Condominium in Toronto and move to the country. My wife owns two horses and we needed a place with lots of room. We found the perfect house with nine acres of property. Surrounding the house was five acres of cedar trees. We were very happy in our new home, until the mosquitoes started to hatch.

We had been living in our new home for almost four years and every year it was the same thing, mosquitoes by the thousands. Every year we continued to use the same old methods to fight the mosquitoes but they just kept coming. I've spent a small fortune over the years on mosquito coils, bug sprays and even a propane fogger.

Not only are the sprays and pesticides we where using harmful to the environment, they were harmful to ourselves and our pets. The other problem is they stop working after a short period of time. We needed something more than that for our situation.

The truth of the matter was we couldn't even sit out in our own backyard. The view of the backyard was from the inside
