Trap Placement Tips for Best Results Unlike other mosquito control products, Mosquito Magnet® not only attracts and kills mosquitoes, it also helps to limit their repopulation. Mosquito Magnet® has been scientifically proven to disrupt the breeding cycle of mosquitoes, causing their population to dwindle over time. But in order to protect your family and pets against disease-carrying mosquitoes, proper placement of your Mosquito Magnet® trap is crucial to its success. For best results use these guidelines to determine the proper trap location in your yard.

1. IDENTIFY MOSQUITO BREEDING AREAS Place your Mosquito Magnet® between mosquito breeding areas standing water, bushes) and the people areas (patio, deck or pool) in order to capture mosquitoes at their source before they get to you.

2. PLACE THE TRAP AWAY FROM PEOPLE AREAS Place the trap as close to the breeding area and as far away from human activity as possible. Typically, 30-40 feet is far enough.

3. 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 an the mosquito will float back downwind to the testing area.

4. PLACE TRAP IN AN OPEN AREA CO2 is heavier than air, therfore it stays close to the ground. The mosquitoes will follow the CO2 plume to the trap. If it's placed in high grass, the flow of the plume will be impeded and the mosquitoes won't find it.

5. 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.
