Lititz, PA (Vocus) April 16, 2009
Mosquito Magnet products are available for purchase at local home hardware or home improvement stores and on the web, and today Woodstream enhances product users’ experience with a newly interactive website, featuring a wealth of information on mosquitoes in time for summer.
Mosquito Magnet is based on 18 years of research, resulting in over 15 patents and making it the leading, long-term solution scientifically proven to control mosquitoes safely and effectively. It works by producing a plume of carbon dioxide that mimics human breath; the carbon dioxide is safely produced by an ordinary tank of propane gas. Thanks to Mosquito Magnet’s patented catalytic conversion process, there is no flame needed to produce the carbon dioxide.
As the mosquito draws closer to the Mosquito Magnet trap, it picks up on the short-range attractant being released in the stream of carbon dioxide. The mosquito is then caught in a vacuum that pulls it into the net, where it dehydrates and dies within 24 hours. When placed between mosquito breeding areas and the areas where people normally spend time, the Mosquito Magnet effectively shields people from mosquitoes.
To help customers determine where their Mosquito Magnet will be most effective, the new MosquitoMagnet.com features a fully interactive tool that allows site visitors to simulate their own yard, then release mosquitoes to see if they are caught in the Mosquito Magnet. If the virtual mosquitoes in the trap placement tool find the Mosquito Magnet before they find the people, the consumer can then use that same placement in their own yard for optimal mosquito control.
For those just starting out with the Mosquito Magnet, MosquitoMagnet.com offers a new “Keys to Success” section, where customers can: learn about the various attractants that work best in each part of the country; find instructions and general tips on trap maintenance; and read the questions asked most frequently about the Mosquito Magnet.
Site visitors can also use MosquitoMagnet.com to learn more about mosquitoes and other biting insects. Information available includes mosquito-borne diseases, a library of articles on biting insects, and even some interesting facts about mosquitoes. The site makes it easy to get help from Mosquito Magnet’s 360º Customer Support network.
“We are pleased to announce the launch of the new MosquitoMagnet.com,” stated Carrie Lathrop, a Marketing Associate at Woodstream Corporation. “We think customers will find the new site full of helpful information as well as easy-to-understand visuals. The user-friendly design, intuitive navigation and interactive tools are all intended to make the MosquitoMagnet.com experience more useful and enjoyable for our Mosquito Magnet customers.”
