Magnet™ mimics a large mammal by emitting a plume of carbon
dioxide, heat and moisture, which when combined with octenol,
is irresistible to mosquitoes, no-see-ums, biting midges, black
flies, and sandflies.
The Mosquito Magnet™ makes carbon dioxide by catalytically converting
propane (using platinum beads) from a standard, 20-lb tank. No
costly, hard to find independent source of carbon dioxide is needed.
The Mosquito Magnet™ generates its own electricity, eliminating
the need for hazardous, unsightly power cords. Because there are
no power cords, the Mosquito Magnet™ can be located near the mosquito
breeding areas, trapping the mosquitoes at their source before
they get to you. The mosquitoes are drawn away from you and to
the Mosquito Magnet™.
