Best Mosquito Killer

Updated on March 21, 2013

Best Mosquito Killer - Mosquito Magnet

In my mind, the best mosquito killer is the Mosquito Magnet. I have used this machine personally and it works very well.

Keep in mind, the emphasis on the word "killer". There are billions of strategies and products out there for "repelling" mosquitoes, but that's not what we are talking about here today. If you are looking for a cheap temporary solution for keeping most (but not all) mosquitoes off of you, you can look into sprays and homemade traps and so on.

The Mosquito Magnet - Mosquito Killer means business! It is a weapon designed to lure mosquitoes in, suck them in, and dehydrate them to death! After a season or 2 of use, you can completely eliminate entire colonies of mosquitoes from miles around!

Enjoy your yard or acreage without getting bit anymore!

Mosquito Killer Questions

What You Need to Know:

Mosquito Killer Questions:

Are Mosquito Magnets Loud?

No. They operate quietly. Won't wake the neighbors

How do Mosquito Magnets Work?

You place the Mosquito Magnet Mosquito killer away from your gathering area. You want mosquitoes to go to the trap and away from you. The trap lures the insects in with a combination of carbon dioxide and attractant. The carbon dioxide is created using propane that gets converted by the machine's catalytic converter. The attractant is called Octenol which you can find below.

Why Carbon Dioxide?

Carbon Dioxide is what we emit when we exhale. This is largely how mosquitoes find us. They can detect the carbon dioxide from miles away.

Are Mosquito Magnets safe for pets?

Perfectly safe for pets and wildlife. Not safe at all for Mosquitoes and other tiny biting insects. Hence the point!

Do they come with propane tanks?

They do not. You need to supply your own propane and a tank.

Get Mosquito Magnets Here

If you are Canadian, the best place to get a Mosquito Magnet is here. They will be better able to help you out with sales, repairs and maintenance. In fact I know the owners of that company personally, and you will be in wonderful hands.

Unfortunately, they are unable to take care of purchases outside of Canada.

If you are outside of Canada, here are some options for you:

Octenol Attractant

Octenol is an attractant, which combined with the attraction of the carbon diaoxide, the mosquito can not resist going to the trap and getting killed.

Mosquito Magnet Replacement Nets

Mosquito Magnet nets are durable and last a long time, but things happen, and you may need to replace them. Amazon has them all. Check them out below.

      I hate mosquitoes but I don't think I would go as far as buying a device to kill them. I don't mind killing the ones in my room though...

      My friend has this, but it has gotten broken I guess since she said that first years it worked fine ,but now it does nothing. But she said it was the best mosquito killer when it worked. And we sure do have them here!

      Tho I assume Greenpeace tries to forbid these as well. We had this thing called Mosquito Killing World Championships and it was such a fun event until Greenpeace said it is cruelty to animals! Lol. Such a shame!

      We have mosquitoes but we don't use this type of mosquito killer! We use other way to get rid of mosquitoes.

      @seriousmoney: ya, they seem kind of expensive at first, until you factor in all the wasteful repellents that you go through. Still costly though, but very worth it!

      I've never see anything like this before. This is a very informative lens. I hate having to spray down in the summer with mosquito repellant and I don't like burning those citronella candles either. I'm going to keep this in mind for the coming summer months.

      I have to look into one of these for the summer. The mosquitos go insane and even the strongest repellants are irrelevant which sucks because I live on a lake.

      Oh man! Do they still make this mosquito magnet? We have had one corroding in our backyard for years now. I never was sure if it really did anything while it was still working. Now we have bats flying around at night. I'm sure they are eating mosquitoes; so we are definitely getting rid of them now.
