Proper placement of your Mosquito Magnet® is crucial to its success. If placed correctly,

mosquitoes will be drawn to the Mosquito Magnet® instead of you. For best results,

use the following guidelines for proper placement: 


Determine where mosquitoes are breeding

The Mosquito Magnet® must be located between the breeding areas (standing water, bushes)

and the people areas (patio, deck) in order to capture mosquitoes at their

source, before they get to you.

Place the trap away from people areas

Place the trap as close to the breeding area and as far away from the activity as possible.

Typically, 30-40 feet is far enough from human activity.


Place the trap upwind from the breeding area

Mosquitoes fly upwind looking for a meal. After a female mosquito bites a human,

its weight is doubled and the mosquito will float back downwind to the resting area.

Place trap in an open area

CO2 is heavier than air, therefore it stays close to the ground. The mosquitoes will

follow the CO2 plume to the trap. If its placed in high grass the flow of the plume

will be impeded and the mosquitoes won't find it.


Place the trap in the shade

Mosquitoes don't like the heat of the direct sun. As the sun sets,

mosquitoes come out of their resting places.
