Easy Trap Management Through a web-based dashboard, trap owners can check on a variety of trap attributes such as the propane tank level, net level, attractant status, motion sensor, outside temperature, fault codes for troubleshooting and remote shut off.
Through your My Account page, each trap management dashboard can be customized to display the information that you need to optimize your trap performance.
Fuel Saving Modes The Commander 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 consumption 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.
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 mosquitoes and features increased capacity which extends its life up to 40%.
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.
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.
CounterFlow™ Technology 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.
As the #1 mosquito trap in America, Mosquito Magnet® has a big reputation to live up to. We pride ourselves on being the only long-term solution that is scientifically proven to effectively control mosquitoes. But what really matters is what people who have used Mosquito Magnet® have to say [or better yet show] about our products. Check out these photo testimonials from actual trap owners and discover how a Mosquito Magnet® can help you put mosquitoes in their place.
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.

Setting Fuel-Saving Modes
The trap has the option to run 24/7 or in one of 4 Fuelsaving 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. Additionaly, 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 mosquitos 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.

Independent Testing on Mosquito Magnet® Traps
Independent tests have proven that the Mosquito Magnet® is more effective and captures more types of biting insects and mosquitoes than any other mosquito traps on the market. Following is a summary of the studies, with the full tests available for download.
Hawaii, Aug/Sep 2004
Five commercially available mosquito traps were compared. The Mosquito Magnet® with Lurex3™ as the secondary attractant, performed significantly better than all other traps tested for collecting total Culicidae. All Mosquito Magnet® products utilizing Lurex3™ collected significantly more Aedes albopictus than the competitor trap using octenol.
Eight commercially available mosquito traps were compared. The Mosquito Magnet® Liberty and Mosquito Magnet® Liberty Plus, both utilizing Octenol as the additional attractant, performed significantly better than all other traps tested.
U.S. Army Medical Command, the Centers for Disease Control, Republic of Korea
Field tests of seven different mosquito traps were conducted where recent outbreaks of malaria had occurred. The Mosquito Magnet® captured 3 times more mosquitoes than the next most effective trap, and over 13 times as many as other traps using CO2 and Octenol attractants.
U.S. Coast Guard, Bahamas
The Coast Guard used the Mosquito Magnet® to reclaim its Bahamian station that had become uninhabitable due to swarming mosquitoes. Six Mosquito Magnet®s captured 1.5 million mosquitoes in just six days.
