The right attractant can turn your Mosquito Magnet® into an even more powerful mosquito killing device.

Using a secondary attractant is critical to the performance of your Mosquito Magnet® trap, as the right attractant can dramatically increase the trap’s ability to lure the flying pests. Once mosquitoes sense the carbon dioxide from the Mosquito Magnet®, they need secondary attractants, Octenol or Lurex3™, to hone in on the trap.
Choosing the Right Attractant 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.
Why Purchasing Lurex3™ Refill Twin Packs Makes Sense
The Mosquito Magnet® Lurex3™ cartridge should be replaced every 21 days. After 21 days of use, the cartridge appears the same; however, it will no longer be effective as the Lurex3™ will have been released. The catch rate will be reduced if the attractant is not changed. By purchasing Lurex3™ refill twin packs, you’ll have a double-dose of this powerful mosquito attractant at your disposal, so you won’t have to worry about being caught short.

Had good results with this product last mosquito season. Really does seem to target the mosquitoes it was designed to capture.

I'm located in Houston, Texas, and these attractants have worked very well for us in our MM4100 for the past 2 months. I live in an area where we have a fair amount of mosquitos, but not an overabundance (before the MM, we didn't really get bit too often during the daytime or late evening, mainly at dawn and dusk). I'd estimate that we've caught between 5 and 20 mosquitos a day: more after first setting up the MM and with peaks after periods of rain. Now, we don't see many mosquitos at all (granted recent "cooler" weather is also helping this out also)
I've yet to use octenol-based in Houston, so I can't make much of a comparison. Only down side is that they seem to drop in effectiveness at about 3-4 weeks and aren't exactly cheap.

Hard to know how well this stuff works versus octenol. I have used varius Mosquito Magnets for the past 10+ years. Living in the Southeast, we have lots of mosquitos, and I think the overall trap works well. We use Lurex because of the daytime-biting Asian Tiger mosquito. We do trap lots of mosquitos, and the Lurex is more expensive than Octenol, so I guess it works.

Attractant has been in the Mosquito Magnet 3 weeks and only marginal results. With mosquito season on the way in Florida, I hope it improves!
