The advanced Mosquito Magnet® Executive features Smart Technology, 4 fuel saving modes controlled via an easy-to-read LCD panel and a durable rigid net. These features can extend the life of accessories and propane up to 40% making this cordless trap a great value.
The Mosquito Magnet® Executive trap protects one full acre of land and is backed by Mosquito Magnet's exclusive 360° Customer Support program, so you can confidently win your battle against mosquitoes.
1. Smart Technology
Mosquitoes only become active when the outdoor temperature is at or above 50°F and are most active at dawn. Smart Technology allows the Mosquito Magnet® Executive trap to automatically adjust to these external conditions ensuring optimal mosquito control when it's needed while virtually eliminating propane and attractant waste.
The Executive offers 4 different fuel saving modes that can be easily set via its LCD panel. These saving modes allow the trap to power down and restart at pre-set times to save propane comsumption during mosquito activity off peak hours.
The LCD panel also provides trap maintenance cues so you will always know when it is time to replace the attractant or the net, when the battery is low, the propane is out or even if the propane nozzle is clogged.
3. Self-Contained Rigid Net
The Executive's Mosquito Morgue™ net is engineered to maximize continuous, unblocked airflow - critical to the performance of the trap. This innovative net also allows for easy disposal, eliminating any interaction with mosquitos and features increased capacity, which extends its life up to 40%.
4. Convenient Cordless Design
This cordless trap is powered by a rechargeable Nickel Metal Hydride Battery. This convenient feature allows for proper placement of the trap without needing an electrical outlet nearby or using extension cords that can interfere with lawn maintenance.
5. 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.

WHY IS TRAP PLACEMENT IMPORTANT
Proper placement is vital to the efficacy of your trap
Place the trap upwind from mosquito breeding areas

Setting Fuel-Saving Modes
The trap has the option to run 24/7 or in one of 4 Fuel-Saving Modes which can extend the life of your propane tank. The propane tank will last 21 days by operating your trap 24/7, which is recommended for the optimal catch rate. Please see the chart below to see the corresponding propane usage expended based on the mode of operation.
Shut Down Day Time
Shut Down Night Time
*Based on a 20lb. (9.07kg.) propane tank
The Fuel-Saving Mode of operation will stop the propane use in the middle of the day & during the middle of the night. Research has shown mosquito activity is typically lowest during these time frames.
Note: Prior to setting your Fuel-Saving modes, your trap must run 24/7 for 3 full days to allow the "Smart Technology" system to learn the cycles of day and night. This system uses a photo sensor to allow the trap to learn and adjust shut downs based on the shift in sunrise and sunset as seasons change.
Press the MODE button to select the Gas Saver Mode Setting.
Every time the MODE button is pressed the Mode will cycle through 1, 2, 3, 4, Off, 1, etc. Mode 1 will shut down the trap 1 hour during the middle of the day and 1 hour during the middle of the night. Modes 2, 3 and 4 correspond to 2, 3, and 4 hours of shut down time respectively.
To indicate the trap is in Fuel-Saver Mode, the arrows will flash and the green LED light will be off. Additionally, the Sun element will flash during the day and the Moon element will flash during the night when the trap is in Fuel-Saving Mode. The fan will continue to operate in the trap, at a reduced speed, to prevent any escape of mosquitoes but will not capture any additional mosquitoes during this time frame.
Cold Temperature Shutdown The trap has a temperature sensor that will not allow the trap to start or will automatically shut down the trap when the ourdoor air temperature is below 50°F (10°C). Research has shown that there is very little mosquito activity during this time frame.
If the trap is running (word RUN is visible & green LED light on) & the temperature drops below 50°F (10°C) the trap will shut down. When the trap is in Cool Down Mode the word COOL and the Thermometer icon will flash. The trap will restart when the temperature sensor indicates the air temperature is above 55°F (13°C). If the trap is in warm up mode it will shut down when the temperature is below 50°F (10°C) but it will not restart automatically.
Low Battery Warning The battery icon and attention will flash if the battery needs to be recharged. Child Safety Lock The ON/OFF button needs to be held for 3 full seconds to turn-on the trap.
This keeps mosquitoes out of our semi-closed-in hot tub area when other products could not. I really didn't want to have to screen in the whole deck.

The best and most effective Mosquito Magnet EVER! I have told everyone that I know about this product.
Review Posted on EliteDeals.comApril 22, 2011
Last year my wife and I purchased a home in a heavily wooded area with a great backyard for the kids. Once spring arrived we quickly began to realize what a terrible mosquito problem we had. We could not play or barbecue in our backyard after 6:00 at night because the mosquitoes would become unbearable.
In search of a solution, by chance I happened upon a page one article in the Boston Globe business section discussing your company and its products. I could not believe what I was reading, a product that actually worked in reducing the mosquito population. Sounding too good to be true I did my research. I contacted retailers who sold your products and customers who used your product. They all said it was true. I decided to take the plunge and purchased your $800 dollar Mosquito Magnet machine.
I am very happy to report that it works better than I could have imagined. We have reclaimed our backyard and can enjoy it any time of the day. I know it might sound silly but I love to go out at night with a flashlight and look at the net filling up with thousands of mosquitoes. It brings a smile to my face every time. Well done...thank you for a terrific product!!

"Our house in Ross, California, is surrounded by miles of hiking trails. It's beautiful, but there are a lot of mosquitoes. We have two Mosquito Magnet Executive mosquito traps that eliminate the bugs and make it more pleasant to sit in the backyard and do work or play with my four kids. I even hold business meetings outside."

Even with all the rain, running two MMs in my large yard for the past 3 - 4 yrs has reduced the biting insect problem so much that we have barely collected an inch of insects between the two units. Talk about reducing the population...
Given the effectiveness of my Mosquito Magnet here in Massachusetts, I drove home to Florida during the Thanksgiving Holiday with my new bug trap in tow. During my 16-day stay in Florida, my little bug eating friend gobbled up thousands of no-see-ums and hundreds of mosquitoes proving to all my family and friends that this is not gimic - but the REAL THING.
Thanks again for making my home (and yard) a place to live and love - bug free.

In a year of record high mosquito numbers, the mosquito magnet has allowed us to enjoy our yard with fewer mosquitoes than ever. The butterflies and bumble bees continue to visit our garden because we no longer have to use hazardous and indiscriminate chemicals to eliminate the mosquitoes. It is a great invention.
Review Posted on EliteDeals.comOctober 23, 2010
I've dealt with mosquitoes all my life. I grew up in Florida and now live in Atlanta. I put the residential unit in my yard and in three days, the mosquitoes are gone. I expected it to take longer. Usually, I walk out my door and get pounced on by the Asian Tiger mosquito. Now, I sit out in my chair and nothing comes to me. I guess I have it placed just right. Every American needs one. I'll be your best salesman. I've told everyone to buy the Mosquito Magnet. God bless you guys for creating it.
Review Posted on EliteDeals.comAugust 24, 2010
After sunset, we'd never dare go out into our yard or garden, or sit on our deck without spraying ourselves, friends, pets and the kids with bug repellent, which I was uncomfortable with. I used to spray the yard with harmful pesticides, then I tried a bug zapper, but it didn't catch them and it spread bacteria all over the place. We never won the battle until now. The Mosquito Magnet took only six weeks to wipe out my biting insect problem. We've gotten our yard back.

I rarely write to tell a company that their product works as well as they say it does (imagine the concept!), but I am totally amazed at the definitive results I've gotten using the Mosquito Magnet! I was originally somewhat skeptical that you claimed it would eliminate ALL mosquitoes - I imagined that it would (hopefully) cut back MOST of the mosquitoes... but your product works almost 100 percent! Since I've had the magnet I have only been bitten once and that was just because the propane tank ran out of fuel that day.
My wife used to tease me that she could sit outside with me anytime and not worry about being eaten by blood thirsty mosquitoes because they always seemed to find me and leave her alone. I told her it was because I was sweeter than her, but I really hated having to lather up in repellent if I just wanted to sit on the patio.
Since I have the Mosquito Magnet I can now sit outside anytime and not worry about being bitten by buzzing, biting insects or have smelly pesticides coating my body - what freedom! It's especially nice that it works at a distance, even when I'm 30 yards away in the gazebo. The concept is so simple yet so effective that I wanted to tell you how impressed I am. This is the only product that has worked - everything else is just smoke and electronic hooey! I don't have to worry about ever being bothered again. Congratulations on a tremendous break through product!
Great Product!!!!!April 28, 2009
Reviewer: Mosquito Hater!
I purchased an Executive about 2 weeks ago and have had it set up in my yard for about 7 or 8 days now and already see a difference!! I was a little skeptical at first, but now I'll suggest this product to anybody. I decided to go with the Executive so I have the option to use less propane and so far so good! I'll have to update again in a few weeks because then I'm sure I'll really see a difference! :-)

This thing comes in handy on those balmy East Texas nights. I would says it has cut down on mosquitoes by 80-90%.
Review Posted on EliteDeals.comSeptember 30, 2010
Although our yard is a haven of beauty with 200 rose bushes, an herb garden, magnolia tree, pecan tree, black walnut trees, many crepe myrtle trees, butterfly bushes, palms, ferns, many container plants and a swimming pool, I have never been able to enjoy it thoroughly because of the mosquitoes in the summer. I could not even float in the pool without spraying every inch of my body. The past three weeks have been a delight not having to spray myself or fear the inevitable multiple bites to which I am highly sensitive.brbrI have recommended it to all my friends and co-workers. Thank you for giving me back the joy of summertime - my favorite time of the year.
Review Posted on EliteDeals.comAugust 10, 2010
I couldn't believe it. We received our Mosquito Magnet about a month ago and caught an estimated 40,000 no-see-ums and mosquitoes during the first 10-15 days of use (1 deep). As a retired airline pilot and engineer, I was very impressed with the unit's engineering. The no-see-ums had previously prevented us from using our screened-in pool, as my wife has very severe reactions to no-see-um bites.
We can now use the pool, and our neighbors are considering buying the machines. I jump on certain products, and I believe that Mosquito Magnets will eventually be in every home that has biting insect problems. The unit even survived 60 mph winds.
Review Posted on EliteDeals.comAugust 07, 2010
We purchased one of your Mosquito Magnets this spring after locating it on the Internet. After ordering it, we received it not a minute too soon. The Magnet worked like a jewel. Prior to using it, going outside, even to dump the trash was like a nightmare. We have just moved to a new home in Wyoming and thought we'd have more time to enjoy our favorite areas but hadn't ever seen a mosquito year like this!
Already we are planning to order several more for the next year. We need one for the shop, barn area, and the garage! Thanks again, you saved our spring. The seasons are already too short in Wyoming to miss out.
Review Posted on EliteDeals.comJune 08, 2010
I live adjacent to a salt water marsh in Barrington, RI. Before buying our first Mosquito Magnet our kids were unable to play in our yard. After a week of operation the bag was completely full. I now have two units - one for the front yard and one for the back and we have claimed our yard back from the biting insects!
