2. Extra-long Power Cord
A 50-foot, 12-volt power cord is supplied with your Mosquito Magnet Patriot. This is ideal for proper placement of the trap away from your outdoor living areas, but near the mosquitoes' breeding and resting areas.
Lawn clips are provided to help secure your power cord and reduce any potentially hazardous conditions that a loose cord could create in your lawn.
3. Easy Assembly
Mosquito Magnet® traps are truly easy-to-set and operate. Assembling is done in just 3 quick steps. Once started, your trap will begin working immediately with noticeable results in 7-10 days. Allow a 4-week time frame to see significant reduction in your mosquito population. For optimal results, run your trap 24 hours a day initially in order to break the breeding cycle of the mosquitoes.
Increase Your Catch Rate With The Right 2-Month Accessory Bundle
Using the proper secondary attractant is proven to increase your mosquito catch rate by up to 10 times. These attractants lure mosquitoes to the trap by mimicking human skin scents and other natural odors.
Mosquito Magnet® attractants are the only brand to be EPA-registered and proven effective. This buying guide assists you in making the right decision based on your location and other factors.
Mosquito Magnet® traps are backed by over 20 years of research and 15 patents that make our traps technologically advanced.
Mosquito Magnet® traps work by mimicking the way humans attract mosquitoes. Through its exclusive patented CounterFlow™ technology the trap converts propane into CO2, mixes it with the precise level of heat, moisture and attractant to lure mosquitoes to the trap and then vacuums mosquitoes into the net where they dehydrate and die.

Wish I would have ordered it last year. Purchased this three weeks ago and it is great! I live behind a nature trail and could not go in my back yard until noon and by 7pm i would have to go in.. I go out now anytime and have not been bit once... I just wish I knew when the propane tank needed to be changed. I wish I would have purchased this years ago.

Easy set up. Goes together quickly. Although runs 24/7, its pretty easy on propane, supposed to use 5 gal in 21 days. Its been running for about 1 week, number of mosquitoes biting at us is noticeably less - and the trap basket has the bottom almost covered with those it has captured.

It Really Works. Just emptied the trap today for the first time and it was completely full. The only downside is that there were still a few live mosquitoes in it. So, I got a bottle of bug killer and sprayed the net/trap so they wouldn't get out alive. I have had Patriot Trap for two weeks and am very impressed. I just wish I had purchased it earlier in the spring to get the first batch of mosquitoes.

In 3 weeks we have gone from not being able to work in the garden without being eaten alive by mosquitoes to only the occasional bite. If I could get everybody in the neighborhood to invest we would be the envy of the city.

Excellent Product. I have been in the Quality Control business for 25 years so I have a very high standard for products I purchase. I read several of the reviews from different retailers and I was a bit skeptical about buying this item. I am one that has to see for myself and with the return policy that Home Depot has I felt I had nothing to loose. I purchased two of these on Saturday morning and placed one in the front of the house and one in the rear. I also purchased both types of attractant to see if one worked better than the other. I want everyone to know that this product far exceeded my expectations in performance. Within a little over 24 hours the basket in both units were at least half full of mosquitos! The information provided states that it could take up to 4 weeks to break the breeding cycle which is reasonable and makes sense. Of the two different attractants, one did not seem to outperform the other so I can not really recommend one or the other. My wife an I are now enjoying siting on our patio again with a minimal amount of mosquitos and expect to be mosquito free in the very near future. I would highly recommend this product to anyone that has a mosquito problem, especially if you live on the Gulf Coast as I do.
Review Posted on homedepot.com Mar 5, 2012April 17, 2012
We just bought some land in Southeast Texas. It had HORRIBLE mosquitoes. I did not feel comfortable letting my kids play outside. I researched this product and compared this product to cheaper models. I was very concerned at the initial price tag. But the old adage is true you get what you pay for. The mosquito magnet Patriot is AWESOME. We have had it plugged up for only ONE day and already have at least 200 mosquitoes in the basket. That's 200 less in ONE day that won't be biting my children. Sure the spray's are cheaper, but seriously 200+ in 24 hours. The cord is long enough. The motor runs very quietly. My dog is not afraid of the machine. My family is very happy with this purchase. Don't let the price tag scare you like it almost did me, if you have a mosquito problem... BUY THIS PRODUCT!!
Buy This TodayJune 19, 2011
I have owned my Patriot Magnet for 2 years now. I continue to be thrilled by what it does for my back yard. Before I bought my house you could tell the back yard was off limits in the summer. With tree lined fence area and plenty of water near by mosquitoes controlled the area. Within 3 weeks this magnet caught enough to fill 4 traps full. We actually eat on the deck now and play without worrying about being bitten alive. Because we kill off a majority of the population in our area the season starts much later than it used to.
My brother in law told us about people in his Army unit that bought this. Then later their neighbors have bought it. I now understand why. My neighbors have asked me about it and I suggest it to everyone. We have 3 neighbors that have bought it now. Everyone that I know says it works perfectly.
It might be an upfront investment, but it is well worth it. My wife doubted that it would work at all. Another one of those gimmicks. But when the baby and her can play outside after work when the sun is going down she now agrees it was worth the investment.
So if you are thinking about this stop thinking and buy this today!

I live in an area full of ponds and swamps so there are too many mosquitoes. Thankfully I have a Patriot Mosquito Magnet so my family and I can again enjoy the outdoors!

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!
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.
Review Posted on EliteDeals.comOctober 09, 2010
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.

The Mosquito Magnet has made a remarkable difference. After the third weekend, we emptied the net and we had about 3 inches of mosquitoes in there. Now my husband and I are like children, running out to the trap each morning to see what we caught.
Review Posted on EliteDeals.comSeptember 25, 2010
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.

Living in Interlachen, Florida puts my wife, Diane, and I pretty much at ground zero when it comes to biting insects and their breeding grounds. We wanted to find a solution that was environmentally friendly and economically sound. It's great to work in our 2 acres of yard and gardens and not be eaten alive.
Review Posted on EliteDeals.comSeptember 20, 2010
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.

We live on two acres of marshfront near Savannah, Georgia. We have been using the Mosquito Magnet for several months and are very pleased with its performance. We are now able to sit outside at dusk without being attacked by bugs.
Review Posted on EliteDeals.comSeptember 10, 2010
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.
Review Posted on EliteDeals.comJuly 31, 2010
My husband, Gregory, and I love coming up to Bear Camp Pond to do some fishing on the weekends, but we always feel like prisoners to our screened-in porch because the mosquitoes and black flies are so bad. We hate putting on those repellents knowing that they can't be good for us. And we love being in the great outdoors.
Now we're spending more time outdoors on the pond fishing than we ever have. These days when I go fishing on our dock, the only thing biting is the fish, not the mosquitoes and black flies. We're back on the pond again and pretty soon we'll be telling you about the big ones that didn't get away.

My wife and I are retired and live in the heart of the Adironack mountains at Loon Lake, NY. This is our third year. The first two years were unbearable in May and June with black flies and mosquitoes the rest of the summer. Last spring after purchasing one of your machines, my wife was able to garden with comfort. We caught thousands of black flies. This has made a big difference.

Congratulations on your success. We have a Mosquito Magnet at our summer home on Nantucket Island and it works wonders. We tried everything to fight the mosquitoes - citronella, candles,electronic zappers, tiki torches and chemical sprays. Since we got the Mosquito Magnet we haven't had to use any of that stuff. My family has been extremely impressed with the results and the lack of mosquitoes in the area and have therefore decided to purchase another unit for our home in Connecticut.

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.

Our neighbor came by the other day and asked,'What are you doing about the mosquito situation?' I said, We don't have a mosquito situation here. We have the Mosquito Magnet." I'm sold on this product. It really works and that's all anyone wants. There is a huge market for the Mosquito Magnet in Westhampton Beach, NY. I think the Mosquito Magnet is amazing. I'm going to try to get all my neighbors to buy one.

We are very pleased with the unit. After a very anxious two-week period when there was much activity but not any detectable results, we were delighted when one day we went out and they were GONE! They have stayed gone, and we are delighted!

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.
Review Posted on EliteDeals.comJune 07, 2010
Your product is absolutely stunning! This is our second season with the Mosquito Magnet. The whole family fights for a flashlight at night to go out and check the net. Everyone loves to see the bugs in "prison."
I recall a small event from last year. Dad was allergic to the bites and ended up first with a dermatologist, and after few days we went to emergency room. They still couldn't help and dad had to go back to native Germany where he ended up in a specialized clinic. It took two weeks for everything to clear up. Well, this year, same land, same dad, not a single bite.
Now we can use the hammock. Before you couldn't be there for five minutes. This summer, nobody had a single bite. Our land was for sale for a low price before the Mosquito Magnet. Now we can get big bucks! WITHOUT THIS MACHINE, LIFE WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE.

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

We have always been consumed by mosquitoes. After running the Mosquito Magnet a couple of weeks, the mosquitoes are just about gone. The difference is amazing!
Review Posted on EliteDeals.comFebruary 17, 2011
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.

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.
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.

It's unbelievable we have almost a full net in less than a week. We have three Mosquito Magnets in place and they are full of no-see-ums and mosquitoes. I didn't even know we had a mosquito problem. We live on 5 acres and about 4 of them are mangroves. Before our Mosquito Magnets you couldn't go outside between dusk and dawn without being bitten all over by no-see-ums, or as we referred to them as "flying teeth". At first we considered putting out all 6 of the machines we purchased but 3 seem to be working so well,we decided to share them with our neighbors on our Island. We're so excited about the immediate results we're having, and are firm believers that it's just going to keep getting better!
Contents of Patriot bundle misleadingMarch 16, 2012
I was surprised when my Patriot bundle arrived as it did not include the tank, even though the description on the website states: " We've combined everything you need for an entire season of mosquito-free living in this convenient bundle!" That plus all pictures of the Patriot bundle package show the tank, both on and separate from the main unit. More troublesome was the response from customer service, who insists that the web site is not misleading. As a reasonable compromise, I suggested that they credit me for half the cost of a tank purchased locally. So far they have refused - I will update with a more favorable review if the matter is resolved.
