Using attractants is critical to the performance of your Mosquito Magnet.
Once mosquitoes sense the carbon dioxide from the Mosquito Magnet, they need
secondary attractants, Octenol or Lurex3, to hone in on the trap.
Lurex3 is an attractant specifically designed to attract the
Asian Tiger Mosquito (Aedes Albopictus). If the Asian Tiger Mosquito is the
predominant pest in your area, we recommend that you try Lurex3 in
your Mosquito Magnet.
Who should use Lurex3 ?
Customers who live in areas where Asian Tiger is the predominant mosquito
should use Lurex3 instead of Octenol. 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.
Why is Lurex3 better than Octenol for Asian Tiger Mosquito?
Our studies have shown that Lurex3 catches almost three times
more Asian Tiger Mosquitoes than Octenol.
What if I have other mosquitoes besides Asian Tiger, should I still use
If Asian Tiger Mosquito is your predominant pest, we recommend that you use
Lurex3. If you live along the coast we recommend using Octenol
since the primary pests are probably salt marsh mosquitoes and no-see-ums.
