Mosquito Magnet is a long-term solution to a problem that plagues homeowners every year
Lititz, PA (Vocus) April 2, 2010
But that’s only the first step. Once mosquitoes are attracted by the carbon dioxide and come near the Mosquito Magnet, they are further attracted by the short-range lure that is scientifically proven to draw mosquitoes to the trap. At that point, they are within range of the Mosquito Magnet’s patented CounterFlow™ Technology, which essentially vacuums the pesky insects into a net inside the trap. Within 24 hours of being caught in the net, the mosquitoes have dehydrated and died. Research has shown the process effectively disrupts mosquitoes’ breeding cycles, and that means the Mosquito Magnet has the power to put homeowners back in their yards during the warm evenings when mosquitoes typically are active.
“Mosquito Magnet is a long-term solution to a problem that plagues homeowners every year,” stated Woodstream Category Development Manager Andrea Long. “The science shows that Mosquito Magnet technology addresses the root of mosquito infestations -- the breeding cycle -- and drastically reduces mosquito populations.”
